65 Years on the Planet, 30 Years with ARCHICAD – Looking Back, Looking Forward

Today, April 18th 2019 is my 65th birthday!

And by coincidence (in terms of important milestones), it's my 30th year working with ARCHICAD; and last week, my ARCHICAD Tutorials YouTube channel reached 25,000 subscribers.

I'm sharing the event with my ARCHICAD tribe, and you're invited (of course) to celebrate with me this special occasion in a special edition of the ARCHICAD USER monthly webinar. 

In today's session, I'll be giving you my perspective on the ARCHICAD journey along with two guests who played very important roles.

If you're not already registered, click here to join us at 1 pm PDT or you can catch the recording later on the ARCHICAD USER website.

A BIRTHDAY GIFT

If I've helped you along the ARCHICAD journey, with my tutorials, training courses or MasterTemplate, here are two ways you can give me a birthday gift:

  1. Write up a testimonial about my work and how it has helped you on this page
  2. Buy one of my ARCHICAD products during my BIG 65th birthday sale, which runs through April 30th.

Announcing the New ARCHICAD USER Jobs Board!

The brand new, totally free ARCHICAD USER jobs board is a community service helping users connect from across town or around the world. 

Join me on a quick tour and see how easy it is to register (it's free) and post a job or contract or upload your resume for consulting or employment.

This week I'm celebrating my 65th birthday with a bunch of new videos and announcements, culminating on Thursday April 18th with a unique edition of the ARCHICAD USER monthly webinar with two special guests. 

More to come soon!

Free ARCHICAD USER webinar:
Monday March 11th at 1 pm PDT

Taking ARCHICAD Beyond Design: Cost Estimation and Construction Management
with Roderick Anderson & John Hallgarth

Info & Registration: https://archicaduser.com

We're resuming the monthly ARCHICAD USER webinar series with an exciting session featuring two veterans who leverage the ARCHICAD model for cost estimation and construction management.

Learn how these experts set up their ARCHICAD projects and manage data for accurate quantity take-offs and interface with a variety of tools for management, reporting and communication including BIMx Pro, Bluebeam and Excel.

I'll introduce and moderate the discussion, and guide the Q&A. It's going to be a fascinating deep dive into this vital area where design, cost and construction processes meet.
