KnowledgeSmart and AUGI will be working together to provide a broader range of assessment topics for this year’s AUGI Top DAUG skills contest, at Autodesk University, in November.
In recent years, the contest has focused exclusively on AutoCAD 2D skills. However, for the 2011 Las Vegas conference, we will be expanding the range of topics to include, Revit Architecture, Revit Structure, Revit MEP, AutoCAD Civil 3D, Inventor, 3ds Max (and, yes, AutoCAD 2D will still be represented!).
Based on our recent experiences, delivering a successful formula for the RTC Revit Top Cat contests in Australia and the US, we are confident that the new Top DAUG format will be a hit with AU regulars.
Contestants will be presented with a mix of knowledge and task based questions, using the 2011 release of Autodesk’s most popular AEC software applications. Because the range of titles is so diverse, there will be no grand final this year. Just a straight shoot-out, for the title of Top DAUG for each vertical!
As for rumours of a heavyweight Revit title fight, between the RTC Top Cat and the AUGI Revit Top Daug, at the time of writing, we can neither confirm nor deny this story... J
More to follow on this topic in the months ahead.
