Civil 3D Webcasts – New Sessions listed!

Hello, and sorry for the break.  I’ve been concentrating on the up coming 2008 release and haven’t had much time to blog about it.

However, some may know that Autodesk provides weekly webcasts that occur at noon here in the east coast and last no more than an hour.  the schedule has been updated and includes dates when they will introduce the 2008 version.  Listed below are the weekly details.  You will have to register for each one.

Although there are scheduled topics, frequently they will address some housekeeping issues before and after the discussion / demonstration. This can include when a service pack is due.  Other times  they might mention a previous session and how to resolve an outstanding issue.  So make sure you tune in at noon and stick around until the end!
