It’s the time of year to stop. Take stock, and thank you all for your support.

This year has been tough. Becoming a CAD manager was harder work than I ever imagined. The pressure to perform and make a difference has been exhausting.

In learning to be a good a people manager I’ve grown a lot, and I’ve made a lot of mistakes too.

I wrote my first eBook this year, and my second and I was once again honoured to write the Autodesk Inventor 2015 review for Develop3D magazine. Thanks Al :)

I released two Video tutorials for Infinite skills.com – Hard surfacing with Autodesk Inventor and an introduction to T-Splines for Autodesk Inventor.

The highlight of the year was visiting Autodesk’s offices in one Market Street San Francisco for the launch of AutoCAD 2015.

San Fran is Awesome, pier Nine is Super Awesome, but my favourite part was getting to meet some of my favourite characters from the Blogosphere,  including R.K. McSwain, Michelle Stone, David Cohn, Todd Shackelford, Przemysław Marczyński, Luciana Klein, John Evans, Curt Moreno, Robin Capper and Shann Hurley.

I also want to say a special thank you to my blogging buddies –  Scott, John, Mike & Gavin at Design and Motion, Edwin Prakoso at CAD-Notes, Thomas Rambach at CAD Tool Box and Jon Landeros at Inventor tales.

Thank you very much for your continued support.
