Friday Funny: What is AFL? Aussie Rules Explained

David Meego - Click for blog homepageToday, I start my flights to the USA for reIMAGINE 2015 in Fargo, ND and GPUG Summit 2015 in Reno, NV. By the time this article posts I will have already left Perth and be coming in to land in Sydney.

As is customary when I visit the US, I will be bringing some of Australia with me (usually in the form of edible treats). In this article, I thought I would bring some Australian sports knowledge to my overseas readers.

I know that most of my friends in the US have heard that Australia has a “football” game of its own, but don’t really understand what Aussie Rules or Footy is really about.

The videos below have been created by the AFL (Australian Football League) and help explain the game.

The first video is a great 5 minute introduction to the game with comparisons to other sporting disciplines.

This second video is much longer (30 minutes), but does go into the history as well as details about the teams and their star players, as well as how the game effects the community.

As I write this article, both Western Australian teams (the West Coast Eagles and the Fremantle Dockers) have advanced to the preliminary (semi) final round.  We need to wait until after this weekend’s games to know who they will be facing.

Time will tell if we will have an all West Australian “Derby” Grand Final.

Enjoy

Perth, Australia GPUG Chapter Second Meeting

David Meego - Click for blog homepageOn Tuesday night, the Perth GPUG Chapter had its second meeting.

The meeting was held at the Perth Microsoft Office from 5:00pm to 7:30pm. We started with some socialising with a drink and pizza.

The number of attendees was down a little from out first meeting, but some of the people who wanted to attend were unable to due to other commitments or sickness and injury. Get well soon Michael Z and Robert G.

During the meeting we did not get through all the planned materials, but we had some great discussions about Microsoft Dynamics GP and its history as well as the best methods to sell and support the product.

Kate Sexstone presented on the benefits of GPUG Academy and the various certifications offered by the program.

Another highlight for me was to finally meet fellow blogger, Vaidy Mohan, who has just moved to Perth to work with a local partner. We have been chatting online for many years, but had not been able to meet in person until now.

Thanks to Michelle (our host) and Katherine & Robin (office admins) from Microsoft who help make the meeting happen.

The next meeting is planned for 8th December 2015 5pm to 7:30pm at the Microsoft Office.

If you are a customer in Western Australia, we would love to see you at the next meeting.

#BPST Announcing Batch Posting Service Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics GP

David Meego - Click for blog homepageToday, I am proud to announce the release of a new product from Winthrop Development Consultants.

Welcome to Batch Posting Service Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics GP for versions GP 2010 (v11.0), GP 2013 (v12.0 including R2) and GP 2015 (v14.00 including R2).

Batch Posting Service Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics GP is a Dexterity integrated software tool that contains a series of service procedures which can be used to retrieve lists of batches and post individual batches within Microsoft Dynamics GP.

These procedures can be called via Service Based Architecture Web Services (for Version 14.0 or later only), from Visual Studio development system using the Visual Basic or Visual C# languages, or from Dexterity using the sanScript language.

Batch Posting Service Toolkit supports all batch types natively supported by the Master Posting window:

  • Financial: General Entry, Clearing Entry, Quick Entry, Budget Transactions
  • Sales: Receivables Transaction Entry, Cash Receipts Entry, Invoicing Entry, Sales Transaction Entry
  • Purchasing: Payables Transaction Entry, Manual Payment Entry, Receivings Entry, Invoice Matching Entry, Purchase Returns Entry
  • Inventory: Transaction Entry, Transfer Entry, Assembly Entry

Usage Examples

With today’s modern Microsoft Dynamics GP system, it is very common for transactional data to be imported into the system using tools such as eConnect, Web Services or the new Service Based Architecture (SBA) Web Services. With Batch Posting Service Toolkit, it is possible to post any batch in the system via an external call.

If you are a customer that imports transactions from an external application such as an eCommerce website, you can now post the batch of transactions automatically with a single web service call.

If you are an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) who has a product that imports transactions into Microsoft Dynamics GP, you can now post the transactions by leveraging the services exposed in the Batch Posting Service Toolkit.

More Information

For more information, please see the Batch Posting Service Toolkit Portal Page:

Hope you will find this product useful for your Microsoft Dynamics GP system.

David
