Southern California – San Diego
I attended the Southern California RUG San Diego meeting in held at a Siemens facility. Over thirty user attendees and several partners and Siemens representatives participated. Three tracks were held, divided between Teamcenter, Tecnomatix and NX subject areas. Participation during session was highly interactive during the smaller presentations and question and answer sessions were lively and very positive. John Baker did a very interactive and enlightening presentation on NX Version 8.5 and indicated shipping is within a 30 day window so we can anticipate receiving it during the month of October.
At the end of the day, a drawing was held for prizes and each attendee received a prize and all received a t-shirt and nice Siemens mouse pad and notepad goodies and one lucky person received a Kindle Fire.

David Mitchell from the Siemens Cypress office presented a session on Teamcenter and volunteered to work with our organization.

At the close of the conference, a drawing was held for prizes including a Kindle Fire tablet.
