Once AU really starts, none of us will have any time to leave the Venetian. It's a whirlwind like that every year. With this in mind, Autodesk Labs software developers John Schmier, Gyorgy Ordody, and I took a walk along the Las Vegas strip last night. John took a picture of Gyorgy and I next to one of those fancy cars you can rent by the hour. As our colleague, Jay Gao will be joining us today from Shanghai, we joked that we should rent one to pick him up at the airport. That would definitely not fly on any expense report as we do try to be prudent with our spending.
While we were out, we did see the dancing waters show outside the Bellagio. I thought I'd share a few minutes of that.
Although the economy is not currently at its most vibrant, on our walk I also noticed lots of construction along the Las Vegas strip. This is welcome news to us since these projects need solutions like AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit, and 3DS Max.
From here on out, the rest of my AU reporting will all be indoors.
