This is the continuation of my first article: Part 1 where the Town Hall and Pricing sessions were described.
I attempted to write this part in the Fargo airport where the wifi proved to be a little sketchy! The first part posted through fine, but this second part? Not so much!

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.

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.

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.

Hey, look! It’s my semi-annual blog article… OK, I jest a little, and hopefully today am starting back with regular blogs.
I’m in lovely Fargo as I write this, having arrived mid afternoon, the day before the Dynamics GP Technical Airlift 2013 kicks off. Unlike last year, I didn’t partake in any of the pre-conference classes offered. Although there were several that appealed to me, it was hard enough to take this time off to come, so I didn’t take the extra day.

A continuation of the first part of my articles on the GP 2013 Web Client, this goes through some of the other training things that were covered that are installation related. Some of the things in this article are:

Tuesday was the unofficial first day of the conference for me with the agenda being one of two things for those who chose to come a day early. There was a sales presentation for those on the business development side and there was technical training on the web client for the rest of us.
Generally you have to pay for training but due to the importance of this product release and the new content, Microsoft put this training on for free – which was awesome. They really want to make sure the Partner channel is informed and ready for the web client specifically, and understand the “stack” dependencies to be able to troubleshoot it when it does release.

It’s that time again, the time to trek to Fargo and be immersed in all things Microsoft Dynamics GP! The last technical conference was a blast and this proves to be no different.
The content this time around is, of course, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and all of it’s new features including a ton of content around the new web client. Stayed tuned this week for bits of news as I have time to blog. Check out twitter if you want live action tweeting from myself and others – hashtags most commonly used are #airlift12 and #GP2013.

Today is day 3 in Fargo, and the majority of the day is wrap up and some chances for the vendor sponsors to present their wares. The room is emptying gradually as the day progresses as people are heading to the airport to catch their flights.
This is mostly some observations of the overall conference and a wrap up of my own.

Day 2 at the Dynamics GP Technical Conference in Fargo: It was another long day, with a lot of information presented in the sessions. On the weather side of things, it was quite a bit warmer today vs day 1, which I have come to learn was unseasonably cold for this time of year. Great…. it reminds me of a trip I took to Sault Ste. Marie a few years ago in January where it was the coldest weather on record at the time (and still was the record low temps). I must be blessed! 🙂
I would say today there was not a lot of “new new” content provided, just more details on the same general functionality introduced in the prior day’s sessions, where it related to the upcoming R2 release.
