What are people saying about Athena?

"[I] really like the new build. It is much less confusing then the old [Common Modeling] one."

"[C]ongrats for this builder. It is quite good and I'm eager to rely fully on it."

"We are playing around with Athena and finding it really useful. It is already deployed to one of our customer developments. Thanks a lot for the hard work! We will definitely try to contribute back anything useful we will have in the process."

So, how do *you* get started? Here's a FAQ. Here's our New and Noteworthy. And here's all the rest of the knowledge base articles.

Oh, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that there's a big list of requested features still waiting for contributions. If you use Athena, you're already half-way to contributing back. Want to help? Drop me a line any time and we can discuss what holes need filling that match your skills and most directly improve your use of PDE, p2 and Athena.
