Just a quick reminder that this years main event is soon to be and there is time to register. http://www.solidedgeu.com/
I would like to point out that this is also for academics and non-users who are interested in evaluating SE and in particular for current users of SE to get a leg up on ST5. Go do the math and see what your VAR would charge for a few days of training and you will see the value here. Plus this is the only place this year where you are going to be able to meet the individuals that run and develop SE and it’s related products.
For you users here is something to consider. The BBS is the official forum for SE and indeed all the Siemens/UGS offerings. For those of us who frequent the SE side of things there we know that it is monitored by and responded to by people like Dan Staples and Karsten Newbury. They pay attention to what is going on and what is said by those who care to post.
These same individuals and more will be in attendance and this is your opportunity to tell them what you think face to face and help to determine future features and capabilities. With some companies I could make a statement like that and be hooted out of the room by those who know better. With SE users I can see them in my mind’s eye nodding their heads yes as we have seen the interest of the SE leaders in reality for some time now.
The early bird discount is until 5-18 for the event. If money is a concern I am sure that many cheaper hotels than Gaylord are available and if you are willing to drive and commute this whole event can run well under $1,000.00.
The question now is can you really afford not to be here? I look forward to seeing everyone here this year and urge you to attend.
