SolidWorks World 2012 – A Look Behind the Scenes #sww12 #SolidWorks

The General Sessions of SolidWorks World and what takes place on stage should always be the main focus!  However sometimes what’s happening around you is of just as great an interest! 

There is always a buzz around the Monday General Session.  Anticipation runs high but it was taken to a new level of intensity when I was seated next to Bruce Buck who was live streaming the session to the SolidBox Facebook page and reporting for SolidSmack.   I’ve never seen a person be able to take photographs and type at the same time with only two hands!
