GPUG Summit 2018 Day 1

Today was day 1 of GPUG Summit in Phoenix. Not much happened today… LOL… ya right!

This year is the first year where there was content for the Power Platform (Microsoft Flow, PowerApps and Power BI). Today I took full advantage of that as it is predominantly new content for me and a chance to learn new things that aren’t necessarily Dynamics GP related. As I do with other events, I’ll go through what my day looked like.

How to follow a conference or event

Today’s #TipTuesday is another non-product tip, but I’ll be knee-deep in sessions at GPUG Summit by the time many of you read this, so in the interest of a “simpler” topic, this is what I’ve come up with!

Today is the first “full” day of the 2018 GPUG (& other UGs) Summit. I get the sense that a lot of users tend to miss out on the news or updates because they aren’t on Twitter, or other social media sites where the news and information flow is often shared first. There are a lot of you out there reading this that may not know or care what a hashtag is, or know what you can do with it.

GP Tech 2018 – Day 3

Today was day 3 at the Dynamics GP Tech Conference. As in other years, the 3rd day is a half day and many people head on their way back home right after the conference is done. For me, it’s a bonus part of a day off to regroup, review notes, check in on email etc. and get ready for 2 more days of training. I’m going to be taking the eOne Solutions SmartConnect bootcamp Thursday and Friday.

GP Tech 2018 – Day 1+

I’m back in Fargo, ND for the annual Dynamics GP Tech Conference. Today was the first day of the conference (Monday August 20th).

I arrived on Saturday morning, with very little trouble, except some minor stress of believing I might have been bumped from the 2nd leg of my flights to Fargo. It turns out, if you book in a low enough class of ticket, you aren’t assigned a seat until you are at the gate in the airport. No choice of seats, you get what you get and you’re technically on standby until then and could get bumped. Fortunately, I did not, but next time I may not be going for the absolute cheapest fare I can find.

Microsoft Treehouses!

Did you know that Microsoft’s Redmond, Washington campus has 3 treehouses as”outdoor meeting spaces”? They are wired for power and WiFi and per this article on Microsoft’s own blog, they are “part of a larger new system of technology-enabled outdoor districts”.

I saw a tweet from another Microsoft MVP Summit attendee this week sharing pictures about it and I got a chance to tour them myself. I had no idea they existed!

MVP Summit 2018

I’m fortunate to be attending my 2nd Microsoft MVP Summit, in Bellevue & Redmond, Washington. The first one I attended was in November 2016, shortly after I was first awarded my MVP award. It was pretty overwhelming! I was still getting used to the idea that I was an MVP let alone being able to absorb all of the content presented to us.

There was no MVP Summit in 2017, as the program was reorganized in early 2017 to change everyone to a single renewal date. In doing so, the date for Summit was changed to what I assume is now the permanent time of year from now on.
