Over the next few days and weeks, I’ll be commenting on each class and what was helpful.  You may notice that there are non Land Development classes listed.  Yes, I took some structural classes as this is in my background being a registered PE.

Maybe this will give you incentive to join us next year.  The days are packed as wellas the nights.  I think I spent maybe $20 over and above the cost of the event and air travel.  Obviously, I didn’t gamble, didn’t have time to do that really.  Drop me a note if you want to know anything in particular about AU should I not comment about it. 

There are some Autodesk links to also get you more info as well:
