Welcome to the New LRUG Website

The old website died on the 27th January as part of the process of Scott White and Hookins passing the domain name over to me. I would like to thank my old company for supporting LRUG for the last six years and in particular Nigel Coulton for his help and assistance with maintaining the old web site and what turned out to be the arduous process of transferring the LRUG domains from them to me. It's now mine and paid up or the next nine years! 

Web Site Currently Under Construction  
I'm in the process of building the back history of meetings. I have been offered some space on a server by one of the LRUG members, which will mean that the documents, slide presentations, podcasts from the meetings that I have from the last six years and 33 meetings will be uploaded to this web site.
The re population of this material It isn't going to happen over night, it will be a gradual process and I will fit time in where I can to make it happen.

33rd LRUG Meeting

Jose Fandos CEO of Andekan LLC and BIM Application Specialist with Buro Happold presented the first in a series of presentations on content creation followed by a presentation on Kinship, a cloud-based Revit content management tool that allows everyone working on projects to find the best content from anywhere across the organisation, almost instantly and right from within Revit.

Invites were sent to 331 members who have asked to be placed on the invite list 18 people were removed from that list due to their email address bouncing. Remember if you move company let me know, my balls are made of flesh not crystal.

I must once again thank Michael Bartyzel for supplying the Beer and Pizza and the venue for the meeting. If any members would like to pay for the Beer and Pizza at future meetings please contact Michael to arrange and that company will get a mention and Thank You on future postings. 

Bad News

The plan was to record Audio and Jose was going to capture the video from his laptop and I was to create a video for uploading here by combining the two. Unfortunately the human or the hardware, or perhaps the software, who knows had a problem and there is no video of the screen to play with !!!.  

Good News

Jose is going to let me have some guidance notes he has produced on which his presentation was based, and as soon as I receive it and have a home for this material I will add a link here.

Feedback from members was that they enjoyed the presentation and Jose has kindly to agreed to undertake more presentations on content/ family creation.

How to Cancel Your LRUG Ticket on Eventbrite

As normal people are emailing me to say they can now not attend the meeting.
I no longer manage the list manually eventbrite does it all. So what you need to do is log into
Eventbrite / my tickets / current orders / view order / cancel order, then the next person on the waiting list if we are over the venue capacity will get the ticket.
