Day Two Round Up – Tuesday, 17th April

DriveWorks World is our annual value-added technical event for DriveWorks users. This year it took place in Cheshire, UK from 16th-18th April. DriveWorks World is the perfect opportunity for our community to come together to learn, network & share ideas.
A huge thank you to everyone who joined us this year. If you missed it, here’s what happened on day two…

Welcome Presentations

We kicked off the first day of training by handing out DriveWorks World 2018 t-shirts. Delegates then attended welcome presentations by Glen Smith and Maria Sarkar.

DriveWorks 16 Training

DriveWorks World attendees are among the first to see and use the latest release of DriveWorks.
This year delegates were able to choose from two training options. The first option was to complete the DriveWorks Pro Training & Certification to become a CDWP. The second option was to choose from a selection of advanced topic sessions.
Both options were focused on learning about DriveWorks 16 and the latest features and functionality.

Tom Wormald and Ian Prossor from the DriveWorks team taught Option 1: DriveWorks Pro Administrator Training & Certification to anyone new to DriveWorks.

DriveWorks World Social

To wrap up the first day of training, we invited delegates to DriveWorks HQ for a social event.
The DriveWorks team worked through the rain to set up the marquee, fill the fridges with beer and set up games.

Lee Herron from DriveWorks reseller, Javelin decided not to join us on the double-decker bus. Instead, he made his way to DriveWorks HQ on his electric skateboard! Of course, everyone was keen to have a go too…

Automation IPA

The main attraction at the DriveWorks World social was Automation IPA. a homebrew by one of our software developers, Ben. See the brewing process on our blog. Automation IPA was really popular with queues going out of the door! We also gave all of our delegates their own Automation IPA pint glasses.

Delicious Food

We couldn’t serve all of that beer without also providing some food to soak it up! We opted for some really cool VW campers, serving burgers and curry.

Fun & Games

Here at DriveWorks, we work hard but we play hard too.
We’ve got a pool table and games consoles at DriveWorks HQ and delegates could also play the Battleships game that Matt and Phil played live on stage during the Monday What’s New in DriveWorks 16 presentations.
