Jerry Winters

Jerry Winters has educated thousands as he has brought his simple and humorous approach to software development topics to Autodesk University. After taking a year off last year, he is anxious to jump back in this year! With .NET's continued adoption and the reincarnation of VBA in AutoCAD 2014, the number of topics to be discussed are huge!!!Jerry started learning AutoCAD in 1988 and has enjoyed the fast-paced action and great variety found in the wonderful world of CAD since that time. After entering the workforce as a drafter, he found he could write a program to perform his job duties in a fraction of the time it took him to do them. Since making this discovery, he hasn't looked back as he has written AutoCAD add-ins and taught others to do the same. As much as Jerry loves customizing AutoCAD, he is devoted to his wife and 9 (not a typo) children and loves spending high quality and quantity time with them in the marvelous rural community of Lake Point, Utah.
