2010 is winding down and the tech news for December is finally here! This month is usually busy as well since SolidWorks World 2011 is right around the corner and SolidWorks, customers and vendors are all gearing up for the event.

This year the SolidWorks blog has been doing Partner Profiles, which is a great way to introduce them to the community prior to the big event.  One of the gems of SWW in general is the Partner Pavillion.  As a user I get so wrapped up in the General Sessions and breakouts and never spend as much time as I want in the Partner Pavilion.

This year I am interested in hearing from those of you that are unable to get a ticket to San Antonio, Texas and what areas/events you would like me to cover while I am there.  I am planning on live blogging the general sessions and some of the breakouts but would love to hear from you on what breakouts you would like coverage of.  Check out the agenda and let me know what sparks your interest. If you can't go, we will bring it to you! ~Lou
