FreeCAD (and free CAE) User’s Conference

This guest post is by Varnu01. Edi­tor’s note: The User’s Con­fer­ence is an inde­pen­dent event and is not run by or affil­i­at­ed with the FreeCAD Project Asso­ci­a­tion, but we are hap­py to spread the word about oppor­tu­ni­ties for FreeCAD users to meet up and collaborate!

Join the rev­o­lu­tion of open-source soft­ware at the first Annu­al FreeCAD (and free CAE) Users Con­fer­ence! From March 1st to 3rd, come togeth­er with a com­mu­ni­ty of cre­ators and users on the Hopin plat­form to share knowl­edge, net­work, and learn about the lat­est devel­op­ments in the world of FreeCAD and CAE.

Con­fer­ences like this one play an impor­tant role in bring­ing togeth­er the com­mu­ni­ty of users and devel­op­ers to share knowl­edge, ideas, and expe­ri­ences. It’s a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn from experts in the field, net­work with like-mind­ed indi­vid­u­als, and stay up to date on the lat­est devel­op­ments in the world of open-source software.

The con­fer­ence aims to bring the world of open-source soft­ware clos­er to the pub­lic and show­case the poten­tial of FreeCAD and CAE through pre­sen­ta­tions, work­shops, and inter­ac­tive ses­sions. Atten­dees will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn from expe­ri­enced users and devel­op­ers as they share their knowl­edge and expe­ri­ences with the software.

This con­fer­ence is part of a project titled: Open Source CAD (and CAE) for Africa, which is fund­ed through the UK’s Roy­al Acad­e­my of Engi­neer­ingEngi­neer­ing X: “Engi­neer­ing Skills where They are Most Need­ed” Mission. 

It seeks to sup­port the deliv­ery of skills and edu­ca­tion pro­grammes that will lead to the devel­op­ment of much need­ed engi­neer­ing skills capac­i­ty, enhanced safe­ty stan­dards, and infra­struc­ture that will remain safe and fit for purpose. 

Open-source soft­ware, such as FreeCAD, is chang­ing the way we think about and use tech­nol­o­gy. Unlike com­mer­cial soft­ware, open-source soft­ware is freely avail­able and can be mod­i­fied and dis­trib­uted by any­one. This allows for a more col­lab­o­ra­tive and inclu­sive approach to tech­nol­o­gy devel­op­ment, where con­tri­bu­tions and ideas can come from anyone.

The emer­gence of AI and oth­er tech­nolo­gies has also made it pos­si­ble for open-source devel­op­ment to expand glob­al­ly. Open-source soft­ware allows for faster and more effi­cient devel­op­ment of AI sys­tems, as the com­mu­ni­ty can col­lec­tive­ly work on and improve the code. This is espe­cial­ly impor­tant in a world where AI is play­ing an increas­ing­ly larg­er role in our lives and society.

The con­fer­ence will take place on Hopin, a vir­tu­al event plat­form that allows for live stream­ing, inter­ac­tive ses­sions, and net­work­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties. It’s the per­fect plat­form for host­ing a con­fer­ence like this, as it allows atten­dees to ful­ly par­tic­i­pate and engage in the event from any­where in the world.

Don’t miss out on this excit­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­nect with like-mind­ed indi­vid­u­als and learn about the lat­est devel­op­ments in the world of open-source soft­ware. Reg­is­ter now and join us on Hopin from March 1st to 3rd for the FreeCAD (and free CAE) Users Con­fer­ence. See you there!

Togeth­er, let’s embrace the pow­er of open-source soft­ware and shape a more inclu­sive and inno­v­a­tive future.”
