A very special edition of SWUGNYC with two exciting guests from DS SOLIDWORKS, and a sneak peek at a new type of gaming experience from Creative Cove Games.
Richard Doyle, Senior Manager, User Advocacy & SolidWorks User Groups
You can forget the long title "The User Group Guy" started using SolidWorks in 1997 and created of the Central Texas SolidWorks User Group in 1999. He is one of the founding members of the SWUGN Committee, and now supports the SOLIDWORKS User Group Network worldwide (this is the guy who pays for the pizza and sends the notebooks).
Richard's last appearance at SWUGNYC was one of our all-time favorite presentations and will no doubt show us some new tips and tricks and tell some great stories.
Strangely the only photo of Richard I can find is that time he presented SWUGNYC the award for SolidWorks User Group of the Year.
Ian Baxter, VP of Worldwide Technical Services
A SolidWorks employee since 1996, Ian is responsible for technical support, education services and consulting. In this capacity Ian’s primary objective is to increase customer satisfaction through provision of best in class technical services to customers via Dassault Systèmes Professional Channel partners.
Ian won't say what he's going to speak about, I am sure that it's something the group will be excited to learn (cue the mysterious music).
Jack Poon, Creative Cove Games
Jack has always enjoyed playing games and the way they bring people together. Now he uses his experience with mechanical engineering, SOLIDWORKS, and 3D printing to develop innovative games for people of all ages.
Jack will be giving us a sneak preview of his newest project "The Depths of Durangrar" (Coming Spring 2016 to Kickstarter).
