We’re hitting the road again to train the best and brightest! Are you a partner or a customer that wants to learn to leverage SmartConnect to its fullest extent? Join us for two full days of intense, classroom training on SmartConnect at one of the locations below:

April 16th & 17thin New York, NY

June 18th & 19thin Dallas, TX

At $1400/person, you’ll receive two, full days of hands on training from our experienced consultants, our latest product training manual, our training image and lunch each day. (Here’s a secret – if you send two people from your organization, the second person is ½ off!)

2. To identify additional ways to leverage SmartConnect at your site or at other customers’ sites.
3. Provide more value for the customer’s overall solution.

Be sure to sign up early – we are limiting each session to 14 people. (We will provide 1 trainer for every 7 people.)

Upgrading to GP 2013 ?

Kelly Youells and her team at Microsoft Dynamics Support and Services blog, have just started a fantastic series of posts – Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Upgrade Blog Series Schedule!!  I highly recommend checking it out. I attended Kelly’s session at Convergence and she had some fantastic insights.

Here’s a summary of notes I created for my quick reference –

Upgrade Paths from GP 10, GP 2010 to GP 2013-

  • If you are on GP 2010, you must be on at least build 11.00.1860 which is after GP2010 SP2
  • In order to upgrade from GP10 to GP2013, you must be on at least GP10 build 10.00.1779 which is after GP10 SP5
  • If you are upgrading from GP 9, you need to first upgrade to GP 10 or GP 2010.

Product Changes

  • Extender is no longer an installable feature in the GP 2013 DVD – you need to get it from eOne
  • Audit Trails and Electronic Signatures are no longer an installable feature in the GP 2013 DVD – you need to get it from Merit Solutions
  • Collections Management is under Additional Products
  • Don’t install web client run time on all machines – Only install on Web Client Session Host Servers
     

Review the “Upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013” page on Partnersource/CustomerSource for latest news / updated documentation. This is updated frequently based on feedback from customers/partners, so if you read it last month – go read it again before commencing a new upgrade.

Dexterity Training in Dallas (June 17 – 21, 2013)

 

Looking for Dexterity training? Come to Dallas!

We’re running this class if only a single person signs up, no cancellations here in Dallas Smile.

I will be teaching the Dexterity Basics class in Dallas, Texas from June 17th to June 21st, providing the basic foundations any Dexterity programmer must have.

This is an opportunity for all of you VSTools programmers to learn how to build your user interface in Dexterity instead of WinForms so that your application will run with the new GP 2013 Web Client. Your existing code will hook right up to the Dexterity events, you may even like the Dexterity forms designer better than VS Tools!

Dexterity is easy to learn and easy to maintain.

For you VBA enhancers, you will learn how to write Dexterity code to deliver your solution instead of VBA. While VBA works marvelously with the rich client, it will not work for the new GP 2013 Web Client. Come to Dallas and learn how easy Dexterity really is.

Even you Technical Consultants, taking the basic Dex class with provide you with the tools you need to understand what all of those error messages really mean. You can become better consultants by learning just how this engine works! (and it’s easy).

For more information, send an email to training@conexussg.com or call 469-828-3274.

Hope to see you in Dallas!

Leslie

The basics class covers the following topics:

Dexterity I – Product Fundamentals

Synopsis:
Dexterity Product Fundamentals will teach you about the development environment used to build the Microsoft Dynamics GP family of products. This course will provide you with the foundation you need to build integrated, database-independent applications. In addition, you will learn how to provide powerful application functionality for Microsoft Dynamics GP.
By actively participating in these classes, you should learn:

Basic programming techniques used by Microsoft Dynamics GP to develop their core modules.

  • How to modify existing Dynamics GP forms and reports in order to make customizations for customers.
  • How to develop add-on applications that will interact with the Dynamics GP products to meet specific requests by customers.
  • How to package and ship your dictionary allowing Microsoft Dynamics GP to make updates to Dynamics GP without affecting the developer’s dictionary.
  • How to register your product with Microsoft Dynamics GP using a unique Product ID to ensure no duplication of add-on applications with the same name.
  • How to develop add-on applications that will “look and feel” like Dynamics GP and provide seamless interface between the applications to ensure a professional finished product.
  • How to use object triggers, which are scripts in your applications that are invoked by events in Dynamics GP, allowing several developers to deliver enhancements to the same Dynamics GP form.

The First day of the month April will now be April 2nd

David Meego - Click for blog homepageYes, I am sorry to report that due to the global political correctness movement and the general lack of a sense of humour, governments around the world have agreed to skip past the first of April in an effort to cancel April Fool’s Day.

It is sad that the world has gone this way, but ever since the BBC told us about the 1957 Spaghetti Harvest (see video below), there has been a downward spiral of jokes played on the world by individuals and corporations.

(Please visit the site to view this video)

The BBC even went as far as showing us the newly discovered colony of flying Penguins and then claimed that they were fake.

(Please visit the site to view this video)

Also see the Making of Penguins video.

This spiralling of totally believable jokes catching out the gullible people of the world has resulted in the masses lobbying their governments to cancel the entire day and so today is now the second of April 2013.

Sadly, this means that I am now unable to play jokes on my readers (especially when the time zone difference catches people every year). For example, I have fond memories of the introduction of Dexterity.Net, Microsoft Dynamics GP for Macintosh and the resurgence of the Ctree Database platform and who can forget the fact that I am not moving to Fargo.

Please remember that the last day of April is now the 31st April 2013.

David
