Do you ever wonder who the people are behind AFT? Do you wonder what our plans are for the future of our software products? Do you ever wish you could talk directly to AFT staff and communicate new features you would like to see? Do you ever wonder who else uses our products in the geographic region around you?
If you answered yes to any of the above, you may want to look into attending an AFT User Group meeting.
Last October we held our first User Group meeting in Houston. We had 24 attendees. The consensus was that there was a desire among AFT software users that User Group meetings be held regularly.
As a result, we have another Houston User Group meeting scheduled for next week, April 11. If you can make it to the meeting then you can meet the President of AFT (that would be me!) and get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into our plans. We are holding this meeting at Dave & Buster's, so there will be plenty of time for fun as well.
Besides hearing me speak about the future, you can also hear some AFT users speak about their use of our software. Finally, you can hear my co-presentation with an Intergraph engineer on integrating surge and pipe stress analysis.
By the way, let me take this opportunity to plug our training seminar in Houston next week. The AFT Fathom seminar will be April 8-9, and AFT Impulse will be April 10-12. This is your chance to learn more about AFT software from the original developer of these products (again, that is me!). I will be teaching all five days. Space is still available.

In May we will be holding the first meeting of our Calgary User Group. Our Canadian users can hear about modeling slurry hydraulics, a user presentation, and the same presentation on integrating surge and stress analysis that the Houston User Group will be hearing. Here is a link: Calgary Area User Group Meeting.
Finally, we are not ignoring our home state of Colorado. This Fall we will be holding the first Denver User Group meeting. I will be there, as well as several others from AFT. Keep an eye out for announcements!
