As you know, I have been encouraging all technical partner consultants and developers to register for and attend the upcoming Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Conference 2009 in November. Well, the reason is not just because I will be there presenting a couple of sessions with my good friend Mariano. Also, it is not just that the conference will be the best place to get the inside scoop on the next version Dynamics GP 2010 (formerly GP "11"). And it is not just for the opportunity to personally meet with members of the Product Management, Development, & Support teams.
The reason to attend is all of those as well as the chance to get some additional training. For information on the training being offered immediately before and after the conference go to the website:
Then click Post Training, scroll down and click View Additional Training Opportunities.
As this blog is development related, I will highlight a few of the workshops being run:
Title: Microsoft Dynamics GP Advanced Technical Workshop: Developer Toolkit
Date: 04-Nov-2009 to 06-Nov-2009
Location: Fargo, ND
Title: Microsoft Dynamics GP Extender
Date: 09-Nov-2009 9:00-5:00
Location: Fargo Vision Building, Fargo, ND
Lunch: Not provided. Lunch in Fargo Commons on your own.
Title: Microsoft Dynamics GP Advanced Technical Workshop: eConnect
Date: 12-Nov-2009 to 13-Nov-2009
Location: Fargo, ND
The Extender training is free, so no excuses.
I suppose there is another reason to attend the conference, one which is not usually documented in any way and in my opinion one of the most valuable of all reasons: To meet with your peers, other partner consultants and developers in Microsoft Dynamics GP community. People who understand what your day to day job is all about, people who have had similar experiences, people who can suggest solutions to issues you might have, people who are friendly and fun to be with.
Hope to see you there. Why not post a comment and let us know you are coming.
