SolidWorks:HEARD! - Episode 473 - The Show Will Go On!


The Show Will Go On!:

This podcast covers the some of the changes that are going to happen here at SolidWorks:HEARD and what the future of this site will be going forward in June.  As I posted last week, I resigned from Digital Dimensions after 12 and 1/2 years to join Onshape, the started founded by the same group that started SolidWorks years ago.  This Friday will be my last day and with that I will be shifting the show topic away from SolidWorks in order focus more on CAD, Engineering and the Web as a platform.

This shift is not completely unexpected since I changed the show focus just a year or so ago to include other engineering and cloud hosted applications.  This industry shift to the cloud is a segment I have a tremendous passion for, as I write this post from my Chromebook Pixel ... ;-), and I have spent the better part of 8 years building tools and integrating web technologies for business and personal projects.

The SolidWorks Community has shown me what an amazing group of engineers can do when they contribute to each other, help each other and share their knowledge for the good of the group.  I have never been part of a global group who overwhelmingly cares about sharing their wealth of knowledge and tricks of the trade.  They have taught me what community really means and I am honored to be a part of it. 

So stay tuned for the redesign/rename, which I have not yet selected but am close, over the next couple of weeks and I hope that I can continue to share my knowledge and discovery with all of you as this journey of CAD tech unfolds before us all!  

Thank you again for listening to the show!  It has been an honor doing the podcast for the past 8 years and I hope to continue for many more episodes to come!  ~Lou
