Just Returned from RTC-NA 2015….

July 28, 2015

This year’s Revit Technology Conference in Washington, D.C. was about as good as it gets!!!!

Although the host city, people, presenters and classes were amazing, meeting the two “Founding Fathers” of Revit was over the top!

Revit was originally the Revit Technology Corporation, which was originally called Charles River Software. Irwin Jungreis and Leonid Raiz started the company to solve what they thought was an absence of a parametric modelling platform for architecture.

Not only did we get to meet Leonid and Irwin, but we also were able to meet most of the original employees and Architects who started it all.   In the beginning, many of us used to call Revit, at any hour, so that we could speak to our Revit Architect and figure out some problem we were having.    Finally being able to put a face and a smile with the voice on the phone was so cool!   Thank you Steve & Dave, who were my support Architects.    In addition,  most of the original developers & Architects were there included Marty, David C., Matt J., Harry, Phil, along with Scott D., and Scott B. and a few others I wasn’t able to meet.    How cool is that!    Thank you Jim Balding and Wesley Benn, along with entire RTC Events Staff and Committee Members for putting on one of the very best RTC events ever!
