What a treat! Watch all the presentations from SolidWorks World 2011

At the end of SolidWorks World 2011 I was suffering from information overload. After each general session in the morning we could attend a maximum of 4 other presentations until the end of the day. It was very hard to choose between more than 150 presentations knowing that you could see only 12 of them live. Fortunately, starting today, we have access to all of them – both in PowerPoint and video formats. While the PowerPoint slide-shows can give you a good idea about the topics of the presentations, I strongly suggest watching the videos. Not only you will get more information from the presenter’s comments, but you can listen to the interaction with the audience. There are some great questions and equally good answers in each presentation.
