Details to be finalised but the main presentation will be given by

Jim Wilkinson, SOLIDWORKS R&D, Vice President, User Experience Architecture

Jim is a 20 year veteran of DS SolidWorks Corp. and has been working on the software since the first release of SOLIDWORKS 95. He started at SOLIDWORKS as the first technical support engineer and managed that group for over 4 years. He then managed the product definition team before spinning off the usability group (now user experience team) which he has managed for 13 years. The user experience team is a diverse group of individuals who make sure the software is designed to be as efficient as possible to use. Jim will give a peak behind the curtain into how the software is researched, designed, prototyped, developed, and tested with users to meet these goals…or, “how the sausage is made”.
