Civil 3D Feeds List

2010.01.24-Feed List

I recently presenting at the Civil Harrisburg Users Group (CHUG) where blog sites were listed as a resource to help folks learn Civil 3D.  To that end, you can download my feed list below.  It contains not only C3D blogs but also Autodesk’s Knowledge Base and Discussion Groups.

You can import into Internet Explorer or use an online news reader – what I prefer – like Google Reader, and I’m sure there are may more.  Online readers are nice because you can than access from anywhere with an internet connection to catch-up when you are board or have some time to kill.  Enjoy, and I hope this helps.

Delivering Mastering Civil 3D to Your Office or Group

I’ve got the roads to San Antonio and to Amarillo, pretty well memorized after all the trips I’ve made living here for over 20 years. And I know the flight codes for a lot of places, from Seattle to Manchester to Vegas to Kansas City.

But it’s time for me to find some new places to visit. As an independent consultant, I’m of the, “Have gun, will travel,” school, and will deliver training, consulting, or pizza to your company, whether next door or around the globe. I offer in-house expertise and real-world experience at a reasonable price, and will support your team throughout the process.

If you’re part of a local users group or part of local chapter of ASCE, NSPE, or the like, drop me a line too. I’m obviously a big fan of communities of users (this blog, AU, the discussion groups, etc.) and I’m a big fan of our professional societies. I want to support your efforts to support your membership, and will work with you to offer classes at a significant discount for your members.

If you want to know more about training or consulting for your office or group, drop me an email, wedding@ this domain, and let’s work together to create a plan for your future.
