reImagine 2014 – Day 1

The first day of any conference, I find you’re spending a bit of time purely getting used to being at a conference again. Where are the rooms? What sessions do I want to see? What did I forget in my room? When are the meals and breaks?

Yesterday was no exception to that… even though I’ve been here many times now, this year the content was split between venues: some at Microsoft and some at the Holiday Inn. That meant logistics, and thinking about your agenda and reason for being here. Day 1 was a logical split (in my opinion) with Sales and Marketing presentations at Microsoft and Consultant and Developer sessions at the Holiday Inn. Personally, I tend to mix and match those two content types. So that worked for me.

eConnect error, but not the real error!

One of my customers is doing some Sales Order Processing integrations with GP 2010… and for the most part, when we run into eConnect errors, it pretty much tells you what the issue is, and you fix it and move on.

We ran into one the other day and this error wasn’t even the real error, so it wasn’t until I looked at the XML they were trying to pass did I see what the real issue is.

GP Airlift 2013 – Day 3 – Part 1 of 2

Today was the final day of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Airlift in Fargo. So much information was presented today that I don’t even know where to start!

The sessions today were all general sessions, no breakouts.  First was a Town Hall Q&A session with several of the key staff from Microsoft answering various questions.  Second was a session on Perpetual Pricing by Pam Misialek.  Last was the “WOW” session that all week (& leading up to this conference) was promised to be content too valuable to leave early.

As I started to write this blog, I realized it is too long for one article so I’m splitting this into two parts.

GP Airlift 2013 – Day 2

Day 2 at the 2013 Dynamics GP Technical Airlift seemed a lot less busy. Not in the sense of fewer people attending, but in the sense of less rush, less overload. Chalk it up to a better night’s sleep the second night (and chalk that up to less socializing last night, haha, no correlation there I’m sure!).

Today was a mixed bag of sessions for me, once again, partaking in some developer sessions and some consultant sessions.  I must admit yesterday I wished I could clone myself as I would have loved to see 2 or 3 more of the things yesterday, where today I had trouble selecting sessions because not as many stuck out as obvious “must attend” ones to me.

GP Airlift 2013 – Day 1

Wow, what a day!  The first day at these conferences is all about getting acclimated to the pace of the day and the overwhelming amount of information that is presented to you. I always find the first day is more tiring than the subsequent days, as I’m not used to being on the receiving end of a long day of content and information to process.  It reminds me what clients in training must feel like!

Today was no different, and I’m taking a break from the socializing and adult beverages for a moment to try to review my day and share what managed to stay in my head this long!  I took a lot of notes, I tend to be a “write things down” person, it helps me remember it much better, even though we get the powerpoint slide decks later.  I also was trying to tweet throughout the day and keep up with the steady flow of #GPAirlift13 content flowing through the twitterverse.
