Arbortext Podcast Archives
The Arbortext Podcast Archives feature interviews with many different Arbortext community voices.
We created this podcast to capture the spirit of the many Arbortext community members who work to help each other.
The Arbortext Community has a lot of talented developers, integrators, trainers, and customers who work together for the betterment of all. Arbortext community members are quick share their knowledge and experience so others can benefit and grow their capabilities.
Launched in 2010, this podcast has archived interviews of Arbortext community members at all different levels—developers, first time users, experienced integrators, stylesheet professionals, tool masters, and many others.
This podcast is far from the only place that Arbortext community members have shared their experience:
- The last Arbortext User Group conference in 2004 (before Arbortext was acquired by PTC and the conference integrated into their user conference) had more than 800 attendees
- The LinkedIn group has over 1000 members
- Many of the members have given presentations to the Arbortext User Group and volunteered in the Arbortext Monster Garage
- Some have written books
- Others have contributed to the website dedicated preserving Arbortext history in order to make that information less tribal.
