We’re excited to see an uptick in blog readership, both in terms of daily activity, and e-mail and RSS subscription (you are signed up to get blog posts by e-mail or through RSS, right?). We spent some time giving the blog a refresh – a shave, new shirt, and set of cufflinks. Perhaps we never explicitly stated it, but we suppose we should…
What’s the blog for, anyway?
Well, it serves as a way to communicate current events with the Mathcad team, what we’ve been thinking about, upcoming events, results of past events, and things like that. Kind of like a newsletter, but not totally. The comments on the post should serve as a discussion or watercooler-type area where visitors can chat with the blog author as well as one another on the topic of that post.
Is this where I can ask my question about matrices and determinants?
- You may stumble upon the blog and wish to make a comment that asks a question about technical support or past versions. For those kinds of questions, you can head on over to the support page. Here you’ll find access to technical support bulletins, licensing FAQs, and links to other related resources.
- Over at PTC USER, there is a dedicated Mathcad discussion area, where users connect to one another for product support.
- And of course, over on PlanetPTC, we have an active Mathcad community where users are showcasing their work and networking with one another.
So, you’ve got lots of places to find the information you’re looking for, and to start or participate or continue participating in discussions. If you’re unsure, just ask and we’ll point you in the right direction. We’ll do our best to put like-minded content in common places, so everyone has a reasonable expectation of the kinds of content they hope to find in each place.
