Over the next couple of weeks there is a online virtual event going on for those in the AEC industry. Some of the presentations are free to attend, but the registration is cheap at $25 to see some of the potential cutting edge silo busting ideas and the hackathon team solution presentations. Come learn something, a new perspective, a new technology, a new contact, a new potential solution to a challenging problem in our industry.
