Saturday. This was the first day of the Convergence conference. While officially Convergence did not start until the afternoon, Mariano and I went down in the morning to register as speakers for the conference and help out where we could.
The big sign at the entrance says it all .... Welcome to Convergence 2010.
We spent some time helping set up the Microsoft Dynamics GP stand in the Expo Hall (B1-2) and took the opportunity to visit Microsoft Convergence store. Everyone always teases me, but I like logo wear and have clothing with many of the different Dynamics GP logos. See the GP Logos through the years post.
While walking around the Georgia World Congress Center, I saw this sign that reminds us of why this conference is so important for the Microsoft Dynamics GP community.
Mariano and I sat in on the GPUG (GP User Group) roundtable session on Microsoft Dynamics GP Development. We were able to help answer a few questions as well as get an understanding of some of the issues and questions the customers and partners are having. Hopefully our 5:00pm session tomorrow (CSGP28) should help.
We also visited the Integration and Customisation Tools stations at the Help Desk area in the Community and Learning Center (Hall A1-2). It is always great to catch up with some of the support team from Fargo.
To finish the day we went to the Convergence Reception. A time to relax, have a drink and a meal and chat will old and new friends. There was live music, games and other entertainment. One of my favourites was the tree stilt walker. Reminded me of a Treant.
Then it was time for sleep as it will be a busy day tomorrow, including our first presentation.
On a historical note. Today (25 April) was ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand. ANZAC stands for Australia and New Zealand Army Core and is a celebration of the achievements and sacrifices of the men and women of the armed forces.
