Providence Geeks – September 23, 2009

Tonight’s Geeks Dinner has been moved to Trinity Brewhouse.

From the Providence Geeks:

It’s September, and Geeks is back in full-force!

Few folks (even geeks) realize that every day in a renovated mill in Olneyville, hundreds of engineers and designers build some of the world’s most powerful simulation software. At September’s Geek Dinner, we’ll get a look into SIMULIA (formerly Abaqus). Tim Webb, a Director in Strategy & Marketing, will cover the history of the company in Rhode Island, as well as the culture and strategy that is fueling SIMULIA’s long term growth plans. He will share enlightening industry applications of their software, which range from analyzing the physical performance of the human heart to the structural integrity of composites in the Boeing 787 and much more.

Please RSVP at Facebook (In the interest of making it more “viral”, we’re experimenting with doing our RSVPs on Facebook – and while you’re there please join our Facebook group. And if you want to join our very-low-volume email announcement send an email to Jack Templin, jtemplin at Gmail with your name and affiliation.)
