The Great Plains Wall of Fame

I have a 3 week, all expenses paid vacation in Fargo, ND in January at the Microsoft offices, learning some of the finer points of Dynamics AX.  As such, I thought I’d share some of the remarkable sights here.  These two walls, in the hallway as you enter the Horizon Building from the Vista Building on the Microsoft Campus, display an interesting collection of news articles from the early days of Great Plains, up through when Microsoft bought the company in 2001.  Pretty cool to take in the history of the application that so many of us have based careers on. * Click on either image to enlarge Thanks Doug Burgum!

What a week of learning that reIMAGINE 2014 conference was! If you stayed for the post conference training classes, even more power to you. In my previous article (see Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 Developer’s Preview: .NET Framework Interoperability – Part 3 ), I talked about the .NET interop capabilities introduced in this iteration of Dexterity and how these new capabilities have become the foundation for unlimited extensibility options for Dexterity-based applications. Today, I wanted to talk about another aspect brought by .NET interop: Dexterity services.
