GoldSim Version 11 Preview
We have been working very hard for over a year on our next major release, GoldSim Version 11, which is scheduled for release this summer. Version 11 represents our biggest update in over three years, and will have a large number of enhancements, ranging from minor cosmetic improvements to fundamental changes in GoldSim's basic architecture.
We are very excited about this new version, and think you will be, too. In the short article linked below, we provide a summary of the upcoming enhancements in order to whet your appetite.
GoldSim Training Sessions
We will be holding an open training session in our Issaquah (Seattle) office on March 13-15, 2012. The workshop will provide a general introduction to the use of GoldSim. It will be of value to new users, and will also serve as an excellent refresher course (and introduction to new features) for existing users. A brief agenda can be found here. Click here to register.
In addition to our regularly scheduled monthly webinars, we will hold 3 additional training webinars to introduce some of the major enhancements included in Version 11. The topics include:
April – Scenario Manager
May – Reporting Periods
June – Flow Network Solver
Each of these new webinars will be held on the second Thursday of the month unless stated otherwise on our webinars page. Further details about the webinars will be posted on the webinar schedule page here.
