The Press at SWW08 got a special presentation from Jon Hirschtick, founder of SolidWorks and CEO up till 2001. He’s an MIT grad and should know a thing or two about CAD history and the future possibilities since, ya know, he’s been a large part of making it happen.
Jon is also a Keynote speaker at this years SolidWorks World. Who knows what he’ll be talking about, but if it’s anything like this presentation, it’s bound to be informative and entertaining.
