Hello, academic users! My name is Amanda Berry, and I’ll be your Academic License Support Guru.
I am your first point of contact for any questions you might have about Land F/X. I’ll also be organizing any upcoming university tour presentations and our LABash visit. I’ll also be managing any licensing inquiries. On top of all that, I host live webinars on a variety of topics for all users, record Power Tip videos, test (and break) the software updates before they get to you, and answer many other support questions from users.
I’m also a trained and licensed Landscape Architect, as well as a Certified Green Roof Professional. After graduating from the University of Guelph in 2009, I worked as a Landscape Architect for 6 years around Toronto before coming here to work for Land F/X in California. I’ve been using the software since 2009.
With all that background, you can look forward to a few new training features coming out over the next few years. First, we’re beefing up our metric documentation. You may have already noticed a few metric webinars and Power Tips. You can expect metric versions of our standard details soon!
Second, I’m aware of how difficult it can be to find training resources for Landscape Architects and Technicians, so we’re planning to do something about that. Over the next year or so, we’ll be adding training videos for Land F/X and AutoCAD that will cover all tools, as well as best practices. It’s going to be an exciting few years ahead with a lot of great development in both our software and training resources!
I’m looking forward to meeting each of you, whether it’s through the tickets, in webinars, or at presentations.
