It has been so exciting to see how much this blog has grown over the past several years. What started as a simple idea between Brian Kling and myself, quickly engaged the entire team. It has been a great outlet for us to get information out to our users. But it has also been a place that we can dig deeper into difficult problems and share, not only the solution, but also the troubleshooting steps to get there. Hardly a day goes by where one of us doesn't say "that would make a great blog post!"
If you have noticed that I haven't posted much in the past few months, it is not without reason. I have accepted a new position of managing the AEC Infrastructure Team. Not to worry, I am leaving Almas at the reigns, and it is obvious that the changes he has already made have increased our user base. Jason and Seth are still going strong and have a long list of ideas for upcoming posts. And for any of you attending AU this fall, both of them will be teaching classes there.
So with the release of our Infrastructure Design Suite this year, we are making some changes to better align with how our customers use our products. Moving forward, we are going to expand the scope of the blog to include our Geospatial products, as well as our Hydrology applications as well. And where there is interoperability with Navisworks or 3ds Max, we will touch on that as well.
Nate Moore, our Geospatial guru, who has been blogging at GIS Exchange, is closing up shop there and will be a regular contributor here at Being Civil. Additionally, Matt and Anurag recently came to Autodesk with a wealth of SSA knowledge and will soon start to add some content related to that application.
So while it is bittersweet that I won’t be writing here anymore, I am thrilled at the direction we are going!
