Here is an update for our new monthly meeting in Huntsville. If you wish to attend please respond here and I will reserve a spot for you.
Attention Solid Edge users,
Get ready for the launch of the revamped Solid Edge users group for our North Alabama / Central Tennessee users. In the past we have had meetings on an irregular haphazard schedule but this next year we are going to try something different. We will be meeting every month on the third Thursday at Siemens in Huntsville. I know this is short notice for the first meeting but it was decided that we would start anyway. We are going to have a greater emphasis on students this time around as not only are professionals important so are the future professionals. Whether you are a seasoned grey haired dude or a student this is for you.
I think the whole idea of a local network that exists for users is important enough to have committed my time for the next year to participate. I think if you consider the value here you and or your company you will consider this to.
What is the value? Speaking personally for me I now have the possibility of future work with a facility in Huntsville because of a contact made through past meetings. The obvious benefits of knowing other users results in opportunities you would not have otherwise. Who do you turn to when your VAR or GTAC have gone home for the night and your rush job HAS to be done? Other users you now know of course. Remember when you had mentors that helped you out when you were first learning? Return this by seeding what could be your future peers and employees with the knowledge you have to impart. Take a part in training those who will in all likelihood be employed by you in the future. Learn from your peers and from actual SE employees how to make your work days more efficient.
Students may I point something out here? There can be a world of difference between what is taught and how real users do things to earn a living. Get insights into how our practical experience will improve your skills and abilities in SE.
Did you know that Solid Edge is developed right here in Huntsville? When you attend meetings here I can honestly tell you that you never know who might show up but there have always been those who do from SE. You can’t get better information on your software of choice than that which is available from those who write it. Dan Staples who is over Solid Edge will be at this meeting and I expect others to. This is one of the great sides to SE that I can vouch for with my own experience. They make an effort to listen and incorporate features into SE based on user feedback. Just like the opportunity you will have to give feedback at this meeting. These guys actually use and like their software and they are well worth meeting for the knowledge they will freely give you.
But you can only benefit from this if you attend so BE HERE. I look forward to seeing the familiar and the new faces. Please reply to this email to let me know if you intend to be here and to let me know you received it.
Regards, Dave Ault
