Tonight was a mix of socials and mixers for several groups including the two I attended, the Press & Blogger Social and the AEC Mixer. Both were outstanding and held at the House of Blues located in the Mandalay Bay. The Press & Blogger Social was packed wall to wall with several Autodesk executives, product teams, as well as the industry press and several bloggers. There was great food and drink including the special “desktini”.
At the AEC Mixer about 1200 people were treated to a group of Autodesk employees playing in a band named AEC /DC. The AEC Mixer then headed up 64 floors to the Foundation Club high atop the Mandalay Bay and what a view there was from up there. It was a blast!
The official start of Autodesk University 2010 starts in the morning with the General Session Keynote. Don’t miss this general session as there will be great speakers and technology featured.
Check out the AutoCAD, AutoCAD WS, and other great sessions. Last but not least the Industry Keynote: AutoCAD and M&E The Power of Choice: Your AutoCAD, Anytime, Anyplace where a portion of the soon to be released TRON:Legacy will be shown to the limited audience in beautiful 3D.
