​About BayAreaBUG

BayAreaBUG, formerly known as SFBUG, launched in 2017 and started as part of a lively conversation between a group of tech-savvy industry professionals at Bluebeam's Extreme Conference in 2016. With a growing interest in SFBUG, the group's champions found it valuable to expand the group to the Bay Area.

The champions are passionate about the industry, technology and utilizing Bluebeam® Revu® in innovative ways. The group's members from XL Construction, RAD Urban, SmithGroup JJR, Stacy and Witbeck, Schetter Electric and Therma not only share advanced tips and tricks toward streamlining processes, but also discuss high-level industry challenges affecting their projects and project teams. With a wide range of discussion topics and a diverse cross section of industry disciplines, BayAreaBUG consistently curates exciting, thought-provoking meetings!
