This week, a few hundred of our closest Revit-using friends will be gathering in Scottsdale, AZ. Starting with the Building Content Summit on Monday, July 11th, and culminating in the Revit Technology Conference, July 14-16, these events appeal to those die-hard Revit users from all over the world. If there was ever an opportunity to overload on all things Revit, this week is it. But, it’s not just about Revit – it’s about making our Revit lives back in the office more efficient and more productive.
Having experienced RTC for the first time last year, I can attest to the benefits of the conference first-hand. RTC is billed as a conference “by users, for users.” The sessions and speakers are top-notch. The topics are relevant and engaging, pushing Revit beyond the basics to encompass the full power of the software. You won’t find any “Intro to Revit” sessions here. It helps to have at least a basic understanding of the software before you go, but you will learn an immense amount of information in just a few short days.
In addition to the class sessions, networking is encouraged during break times. Conference numbers are kept relatively low and by the second day, faces start becoming familiar friends. The evening events lighten up the conference and give a much-needed break from the intense learning sessions.
I’ll be packing my bags with plenty of of sunscreen and heading to sunny Scottsdale the day before RTC to participate in a FormIt 360 workshop on Wednesday with the developers from Autodesk. What does FormIt have to do with Revit? Stop in and see! Or if you can’t make it to RTC, check out my FormIt-Revit class at Autodesk University in November.
See you in Scottsdale.
