3 Reasons to Travel to Fargo in November!


Now
when one hears the name Fargo they tend to connect it with the 1996 thriller/drama Fargo or the latest television show. Despite
having the name Fargo

GPUG Summit 2014 St. Louis – Wrap Up!

Wrap Up Post

It’s time to close this chapter, but not without a few thoughts:

1. The Summit keeps attracting more and more attendees each and every year. This year, we maxed out at around 3,500 people which is quite a feat if you put it in perspective. My gut feeling tells me in a couple years we will be talking Convergence numbers and this will be mostly end-users!

2. I feel the Summit could take advantage of repeat sessions, similar to Convergence. Many topics were too similar in title and content, which could confuse the end-user when selecting a session to attend, given that each presenter (and presenter style) is different.

3. There aren’t enough parties! Rock-n-Rave and FastPath alone cannot entertain 3,500 people — on another note, after seeing Andy Snook rock the bass at the PBR St. Louis, I’m convinced that we could take advantage of a stadium or arena to make something big.

4. It’s cool to hang out with Polino. They guy simply knows when to relax and have fun! I wish he rode the bull at PBR. That would have been quite the show.

GPUG Summit 2014 St. Louis – Day 3

Friday, October 17, 2014

Ok, what just happened last night, ugh! Day 2 was quite the day (and the night!). However, the Summit was coming to an end and it was almost time to close the curtains on what I personally reckon to be a very successful event. This meant participating in the last networking huddle event, which had tables organized by roles; visit the Expo one last time to say bye to ISVs who tirelessly worked to bring some of the best products to market; and attend maybe a session or two going throughout the day.

After the networking huddle, it was time for the Ask the All Stars session which, as its now traditional, is preceded by the GPUG All Star nomination and award. I have to say that this year I was fortunate enough to have been nominated, but felt short by one vote… just messing!

The new All Stars mingled with the previous year crop to take questions from the audience in attendance at the Ferrara theater, MCed by Andy Hafer. Upon conclusion of the Q&A session, it was time to honor the very first recipient of the Richard Whaley Academy Award with the distinction going to Mr. Bob McAdam. Bob has tirelessly worked to provide some of the best end-user Academy classroom training content out there and in doing so, has been recognized by community users as a consummate professional. As you may know, Richard left us all last month after years dealing with personal ailments.

To award was handed to Bob by Richard’s daughter Elizabeth “Betsy” Whaley with Rich Beliveau, Academy Director MCing the ceremony.

Of course, no Summit would be complete without knowing where the next event will take place, so it was announced that Reno-Tahoe, NV will be the destination of the next GPUG Summit 2015 event. The following video shows what awaits next year’s Summit attendees.

Until next post!

GPUG Summit 2014 St. Louis – Day 2

Thursday, October 16, 2014

With Day 1 behind us, Day 2 brought a lot of expectations as it was officially a full day of sessions. Yes, that meant a lot more sessions than even the day before. My day started out with Mariano’s Toolbox Series: The Support Debugging Tool at 9:45 AM. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised to have over 60 people in this session, given the night before was Rock-n-Rave. The cool thing is, I just had two or 3 people who had been to the party.

After my session, I met up with a few folks over at the Mekorma Hub to discuss how their sessions were progressing. Then, we head down to the Meal Hall for lunch and to participate in the networking huddles.

Networking Huddles

My afternoon session, Mariano’s Toolbox Series: Upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 at 2:00 PM was also received well with over 40 people in attendance. However, these Summit events are all about the spirit of the community. My good friend Kitty Geiger (myappsanywhere.com) was in a pinch to get one of her Modifier with VBA examples for her session working, so we sat down at the Mekorma Hub to take a look at it. Given the complexity of what she was trying to achieve and the little time we had, we decided to download and use the sample VBA customization found on my Modifier with VBA Workshop series.

In the end, Kitty and I ended up both delivering her session, TechExpert: Leverage the Advantage of Modifier with VBA. This completed a day of 3 full sessions, so it was time to get some drinks and enjoy the rest of the evening.

I went to my hotel to drop off my stuff and met up with friends over at Copia Restaurant & Wine Garden for a wine tasting event hosted by Scribe Software. After wrapping up, we went over to PBR Cowboy Bar to tap off the evening with the FastPath team who was hosting a party to celebrate Andy Snook’s birthday and in addition to simply, well, drink!

I must say, I was quite surprised to learn that Andy Snook not only talks security, but also rocks the bass. The night went on and the drinks kept coming. However, I had a chance to catch up with a whole bunch of folks that you keep seeing at the same parties.

Then there was the unspeakable. So it’s best I leave it at that. It was past 2:30 AM when I left so I can only assume things continued throughout the morning for a few souls.

Until next post!

GPUG Summit 2014 St. Louis – Day 1

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

After a jammed pack Academy Training day on the previous day, Summit Day 1 begins with a little stroll from my hotel down to the America’s Center Convention Complex. On the way there, I cannot help but to snap a picture of the now very famous Runner Fountain at Kiener Plaza, which happened to be running a pink to red tone in support of the Cardinals.

This is probably one of the most sought after shots for any photographer (which I’m not!), so why not.

At the Convention Complex, the day opened with the keynote session where Andy Hafer and Hal Howard provided some great input into the growth of the Summit event over the years. Andy also welcomed the more than 47% of first time attendees to Summit and jumped into some of the key stats that made this the largest summit in the 10 years running.

It was time to turn the tides and on came funny man, motivational speaker, and self-proclaimed “attitude adjuster”Steve Rizzo, who started the day with a very cool outlook into his early childhood and key learnings from his career as a comedian. The highlight: “Feeling good is the fuel that drives motivation.” Steve proposed achieving this by simply changing our early morning attitude. Focusing on the good things in life – as opposed to the non-essential and non-consequential – by getting “your shift together” makes all the difference.

After the keynote, it was time for my first session of the Summit: Mariano’s Toolbox Series: Integration Manager. This year, Kim thought it would be great to have a branded list of sessions that allowed me to showcase a few of my tips, tricks, and best practices around Microsoft Dynamics GP so, I went along!


Attendees to Mariano’s Toolbox Series: Integration Manager session

My session had well over 50 attendees and showcased some of the key aspects of working with Integration Manager and how scripting can expand the out of the box capabilities – well, I believe I lost a few people here, but I think the audience was satisfied with the overall presentation.

Once my session concluded, I went over to the Ferrara Auditorium to attend the GPUG Summit General Session, MCed by Kim Peterson,

GPUG General Session

Kim welcomed premier sponsors Fastpath, Metaviewer, and Rockton Software on stage to ask them about their products and the value to the community. As is customary, Mark Rockwell certainly brought down the house with one of his now very popular product jingles.

Then it was Microsoft’s turn to showcase some of the upcoming features, roadmap, and vision surrounding the upcoming releases of Dynamics GP. Errol Schoenfish, Director of Product Management and Jeff Trossen, VP of Product Development presented some of the great features that will be released in the upcoming Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, including but not limited to, extended workflow capabilities, the new service based architecture components, Business Analyzer for Android and iOS, and some of the employee self-serve capabilities. For more information on the upcoming GP 2015 features, take a look at the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog.

Microsoft Dynamics GP Vision

After the General Session, it was time for my second session of the day: Mariano’s Toolbox Series: Web Client Deployment. Again, this session was a real treat to those in attendance as only a couple of hands went up when asked if they had seen or work with the Dynamics GP web client. We got a chance to look at all the components, some technical implementation aspects, and definitely all related to infrastructure on premise and in the cloud.

Following my session, it was time to head back to the Expo and comingle with the ISV community.

2nd Day of Expo

By now, you are familiar with Rock-n-Rave at Summits and Convergence and this time it was no different. The venue: the Lucky’s Dueling Piano Bar. However, still too much for me to go through so off I went to my hotel for a quiet night.

Until next post!
