Autodesk University 2008 - Registration

Well I'm finally sorted out my classes at this years' premier event - Autodesk University. I'm particularly looking forward to the sustainability classes, namely:
  1. Sustainablilty Tools for Revit® Architecture: The IES Sustainability Toolkit Plug-in
  2. Revit® Architecture: LEEDing the Way ; and the one I'm particularly looking forward to is
  3. Practical Sustainable Design Workflows with Ecotect® and Revit®

It'll be interesting how I can incorporate any of these these tools into my design practice...

Only a few months to wait... :)
