TO 2014 - Summary day 2
here is as promised a summary of my second day at AU.
I was lucky enough to be invited to a Breakfast with the folks at RTC to discuss technology in general and what we can do to get companies to follow suit. Then, a first course (CO6968) on renovation projects with the theme of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars. Very interesting.
Then, the expected event of Opening Keynote. I estimate the number of people between 8000 and 8500 people. Not much information this year on what is to come, I am left on my hunger. They did however talk about the possibility of accessing software regardless of the platform. Again, a large warning text begins the presentation by saying that what is shown is not a promise of what is to come ...
for the rest of the day, i had a great class with scott chatterton and justin james on BIM management, a class very similar to ours that we will be giving. Scott is a member of the Canadian BIM Council and is known for his Revit Jedi blog.
I also went to pass my certification for Revit Structure while waiting for the opening of the Exhibit Hall. Always eagerly awaited, this year I found that the demonstrators did not have many gifts for us. Usually, for 7 years, demonstrators have been giving away gadgets and my children are very happy when I come back with balls that change color, laser pencils etc, this year it's different. But the most important is that this year the place is much bigger, we can try virtual reality, 3D prints, drones with cameras and no matter where we walk, beer, wine, food is always present.
We left early to prepare for our lesson, but I will be looking for more information tonight for you.
program of the day for me: course on A360 Glue, creation of families, study of a hospital project by HOK, BIM intelligence and above all the presentation of our course in front of around 300 people this year.
I keep sending the photos I take to Khettab, stay tuned!
