The Big Easy

I’m flying out tomorrow for New Orleans for SolidWorks World. I’ll be there through Wednesday night. It should be an interesting trip. Jennifer has decided to fly down on Monday night (she couldn’t stand to be that far away from the kids for any longer). We’ve already made reservations at one of Emeril’s restaurants. I look forward to having the time at night to spend on an extended date. I dread all the seminars, because I know it will get a little boring by the end of the day, but I’m sure it will be worth it.

SolidWorks is an incredible software design package that lets engineers and designers model and analyze. It’s powerful, and the learning curve isn’t too bad, but it still takes a long time to become really good at all the lesser used commands. I will be responsible for coming back and sharing what I have learned with all our other designers. I will try to blog about some of the technology that I come across at the conference. Already, I received an email yesterday that I had won a 3d motion controller from 3dconnexion. Hopefully I can come across some more cool giveaways. You gotta love freebies.


I am a former design engineer who now pastors Cornerstone Community Church in Galax, Virginia. I'm passionate about following Jesus and I love technology. I've been married to Jennifer for 28 years, and we have three adult children.
