From London to Amsterdam...

I am blogging today from my hotel room in Amsterdam - basking in the afterglow of another brilliant Be Seminar, which follows hot on the heels of London and Frankfurt before.

Every single Be Seminar has built upon the excitement I first experienced in Philly. And I have to say, it's been great to witness our users' excited reactions to the V8i software portfolio. But our users are not alone; the world's media has caught on to V8i too.

Check out a sample of the good press received online on our V8i media page .

You know, when I hear and read positive commentary - especially from folks I have known for years - it reinforces my belief that Bentley is succeeding in its mission to help users deliver better projects. Clearly, and based on user reactions, V8i will very soon be put to work by users who are sustaining infrastructure.

I don't think we could ask for more than that. There really is no greater compliment to an engineering software firm.

Our next stop is Paris, on Friday 21st November, and I am sorry to say I won't be there. I have a pre-existing appointment in London on the same day. Thankfully my disappointment about missing Paris was somewhat assuaged today when I got the chance to present Keith's five favorite MicroStation V8i features to the Amsterdam crowd.

How about that? It was a thrill... I hope my enthusiasm came across, I know there was much smiling and nodding from the audience. It was also a great way for me to sign-off on this tour. Of course I will grab a report from colleagues who do attend the Paris event and share it with you here.

Be sure to catch the Paris Be Seminar, it's the last event in the series.  Like Amsterdam today, Paris also highlights include the Cadastre and Land Development solution track.

I'm also excited to announce that the V8i portfolio now boasts 48 released products . Check out the extensive list often as it continues to grow each day.

Have you downloaded MicroStation V8i yet? What are you waiting for? Check it out for yourself.
