Greetings from sunny Las Vegas! At least, I assume it's sunny–I haven't been outside since I arrived at the Venetian yesterday. But that's AU for you...there's just so much going on inside!
Considering that the classes don't kick off until today, there was plenty happening at the conference.
The first-ever Freshman Orientation, hosted by Lynn Allen, drew over 1000 attendees.
Over 500 people took Autodesk Certification Exams in the first 3 hours that the testing center was open–wow! The exams are free all week to AU attendees, which is great if you're trying to add a little polish to your resume.
The evening was packed with various receptions in all parts of the hotel complex...if you don't come to AU ready to walk, you'll be sorry!
I didn't take many pictures yesterday (too busy trying to stay hydrated in the desert), but here's me with the CAD Geek himself, Donnie Gladfelter.
Thanks to R.K. McSwain (@cadpanacea) for the picture! I'll try to do better with the picture-taking the rest of the week. :-)
