The time has finally come…tomorrow I will be flying to the Southeast for my first business trip in 21 months, and I’ll be on the road for 3 solid weeks!
One of the stops on my trip will be the DHI conNextions conference in New Orleans, and I’ll be teaching a brand new version of my 1 vs. 100 class on Thursday, October 21st at 8 a.m. (details here). What better time to learn about codes than first-thing in the morning when you’re fresh – am I right? I’m already worried about oversleeping, so maybe you can all text me around 6:30, just in case.
If you are attending the conference, I hope to see you in my class. It’s fun AND educational – there are even prizes! And if you are an architect/architectural specwriter or code official in the New Orleans area, I have a promo code that allows you to attend my class and visit the exhibit hall – for free! Just leave your email address below and I’ll send you an email with the promo code.
