Seeking Job

I am in Dubai and seeking a landscape related job.

I've been here just over two years; and from all I have seen and heard these last 5 weeks, I think the real estate storm is about to crash on Dubai, big time.

So maybe, I should write, seeking a landscape related job anywhere!

Any offer considered.

Thank you.

I have not implemented the multi-user aspect of the software yet but they provide an example project to get started on it. I believe you can also do it through the web browser and not just the standalone. The great thing about it is you can do as much as you want with the software. I plan on looking more at the implications for this tool in design education and what you suggested would be one of the aspects I would explore.
