I'd like to shout out a huge "Thank you!" to the great customers, partners, and Autodesk employees who contributed to getting the word out about Autodesk Project Galileo and the LandXplorer products at Autodesk University 2010.
Some notable highlights:
- Galileo was showcased on the conference mainstage, the Infrastructure mainstage and in press briefings given by Jay Bhatt, Phil Bernstein, Bryan Mathews, and Paul McRoberts that generated numerous hallway conversations for me around Galileo, Conceptual Design, and the integrated CAD/GIS/BIM/3DS workflow
- Dan Campbell, City of Vancouver, and Lynda Sharkey, Autodesk, gave fantastic talks and presentations on the value of city modeling, current software that can be used (i.e., LandXplorer) and the hurdles of the workflows that customers go through to maintain a model today
- The Autodesk Project Galileo Open House was so packed that I had to step over attendees' laps to get to my computer at one point. We had about 40 attendees in a room set up for 18 people and many Autodeskers generously gave up their seats to allow customers and partners to see Galileo. Bob Bray and I were both really excited and grateful that so many people came to see us and stuck it through the whole 90 minutes.
- The Open House was attended by attendees from at least four continents, representing work on at least 5 continents. Any questions that the need for infrastructure modeling solutions is global?
- I was absolutely thrilled that two Open House attendees had built models by the end of the Open House from their own data using a pre-preview build of Galileo that we handed out at the event.
- All of the AU Galileo events have helped push views of the Galileo videos to 1500+
