Well this is the last tech news cast for 2011 and it was a bit of a slow month for tech news but a few good nuggets. This is that time of year where everyone is ready for the year to end and the buzz of the new release has worn off and SolidWorks World is about 2 months out. Next month the news will be ramping up for the big show.

Currently the deal for SolidWorks is $100 off a single registration or the 3 for 2 deal till January 20, 2012.  If you have not yet started planning your attack to convince your boss to go, get on it! This is, hands down, the best way to energize your year and boost your knowledge.  This is not a trade show, it is a training session marathon with a ton of perks.  Visit the SolidWorks World site for help in this convincing process.

The SolidWorks Monthly FAQ for December has not yet been posted so I will cover that next week to relay any good tidbits.  I have a couple of roundtable shows in the works to finish out the year so stay tuned! ~Lou
