Meeting with other ANSYS software users and partners at a 2013 Convergence Conference
Wow, I can barely believe how time flies. We are only a month away from kicking off our first group of 2014 Regional Convergence Conferences. The first conferences begin in Poland (April 10-11), Turkey (April 18) and Austria (April 24-25) with worldwide Convergence Conferences running throughout the year (view all conference locations).
I’ve told you in the past why I love these conferences (2013 Tokyo Convergence Conference and 2013 Mexico Convergence Conference) but I will say it again. It is extremely exciting to see how engineers use ANSYS technology to develop state of the art products. It is always a very humbling experience for me to see so many great designs and products where simulation plays a key role. But that is just me — I am a geek!
Now let me tell you what I heard from attendees at the 2013 conferences and why they liked it. Continue reading
Lane Lewis presenting at the 2013 Convergence Conference Plenary Session
Our world-wide Convergence Conferences are back and better than ever. With even more locations in 2014, consisting of excellent presenters that use ANSYS software, you just may find a tip a two to solve a complicated problem that you’ve encountered.
The conference also offers you the opportunity to meet and network with ANSYS engineers and managers, hardware/software partners, simulation industry thought leaders and other ANSYS users to learn how to leverage our suite’s capabilities in solving complex product development challenges. Regional conferences begin in April and are hosted in over 25 countries throughout the year. Continue reading
Before I get to the ANSYS Webinars for the week, today in the United States we celebrate the birthday of George Washington, the first President of the United States. But, in his honor, I cannot tell a lie. Did you know that technically Mr. Washington was not the first President? Nope. That honor really goes to John Hanson. A fascinating story you might want to check out after you register for one of our free webinars this week.

ANSYS is excited to exhibit at DesignCon 2014 in Santa Clara,CA on January 29 and 30 and we have some very exciting reasons you should register to attend and stop by booth #513 to talk to our signal integrity, power integrity and EM experts! Here are just a few.
Live Presentation: The Future of Power Integrity and the Implications on Signal Integrity and EMI at 2:00 and 4:00 daily.
As technology continues to evolve towards realizing the “Internet of Things”, so must the underlying design tools. ANSYS has updated our signal integrity and power integrity analysis solution portfolio. Stop by for a short presentation on the important new changes coming to SIwave and HFSS that will propel future applications of PI/SI and EMI. Continue reading

As 2013 draws to a close, this will be my last ANSYS Webinars post until the new year. This week we have two webinars focused on advancements in the ANSYS 15.0 release for low-frequency electromagnetics and structures.
But it’s not your last opportunity to learn something new in 2013. Did you know that every webinar we’ve presented this year can be found in our Resource Library? You can use the convenient search functionality to select the topics that interest you the most. While you’re there, why not check out some of our case studies and technical briefs as well.
Here’s what is on the schedule this week. Register now and I’ll see you next year! Happy Holidays Everyone!! Continue reading
Today’s a very special day, so before I proceed with the ANSYS webinars for the week, I’d like to tell you a little about why. One hundred and seven years ago, a woman was born who would one day help to change the world. In fact, Google’s Doodle today is celebrating her birthday. Do you know who she is?

Grace Murray Hopper (Dec 9, 1906 – Jan 1, 1992) was an American computer scientist, a pioneer in the field, and one of the first programmers of the Harvard Mark I computer. She developed the first compiler for a computer programming language and conceptualized the idea of machine-independent programming languages, which led to the development of COBOL. She is credited with popularizing the term “debugging” for fixing computer glitches (inspired by an actual moth removed from the computer.
You might have noticed the One Hour of Code text in the image above. Today also kicks off Computer Science Education Week in the U.S., which promotes the idea that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science. I agree!
I’m going to make an assumption that most, if not all, of our readers do a little coding from time to time. This week would be the perfect time to share that skill with your children, your nieces, your nephews, or the kid down the block. I would like to encourage you to introduce them to the Hour of Code project and have some fun!
