Microsoft Convergence New Orleans 2013: Wrap Up

Convergence is over and I am now back to the daily grind. However and as is customary, this wrap up post serves as a venue to provide some insight into this past event, links to all posts, and of course, suggestions for the next.

First and foremost, a big thank you goes out to my friends at Microsoft for inviting me to this year’s Convergence event as a speaker and presenter at the General Session. This is probably one of the highlights of my career in the channel. In particular, I want to send out a big shout-out to the following folks (in no particular order):

  • Aaron Donat, for accepting the co-presenter role with me at GPPC’s PreGAME and to help me in continuing building my understanding and knowledge of the Web Client.
  • Pam Misialek, for all her guidance throughout the process leading up to the General Session presentation.
  • Kevin Racer and Daryl Anderson, for inviting me as a co-presenter in our session CSGP32 – Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client For Smaller Companies. Sorry I came down ill on our first go around, but hopefully the second time was great.
  • Errol Schoenfish, for his great introduction of Mark and I and the duel we were about to engage in.
  • Chad Sogge, for his participation at the MVP Breakfast
  • David Musgrave, for his patience in preparing me for the Support Debugging Tool session and for dedicating a great deal of time in making the pre-build 18 release available for the session.

I can’t thank the rest of you at Microsoft enough for your continued camaraderie and support: Jay Manley, Jennifer Ranz, Theresa Nistler, Brian Meier, Sivakumar Venkataraman, Jared Hall, Brian Roney, Sarah Purdy, Kelly Youles, and the list goes on and on, so please forgive me if I omitted your name here. You all contributed to making this a great Convergence for me and my wife.

Special thanks to Brian Graftaas for conceding some time on his busy Convergence calendar to talk about the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics program.

Outside of Microsoft, I would like to extend a big thank you to Kim Peterson and Andy Hefer at DynamicCommunities for inviting me to GPPC PreGAME as a presenter, MVP Mark Polino for accepting the challenge of presenting with me at General Session, though we only had a few hours to rehearse in person, MVP Jivtesh Singh for his guest appearance during my session CSGP30 – The Microsoft Dynamics GP Support Debugging Tool,

Convergence 2013 – Memories from New Orleans

It was indeed a Convergence to remember… It all began with a 29 hour (3 connection flight) from Bangalore to New Orleans. I flew Emirates (wonderful service…really) from Bangalore to Dubai, and then from Dubai to Dallas

Microsoft Convergence New Orleans 2013: Day 3

With the General Session gone it was now time to get through some sessions for the day.

The morning started out with a breakfast for the Microsoft Dynamics (AX, GP, CRM, NAV, and SL)MVPs in attendance, hosted by our Microsoft MVP Award Program lead, Melissa Travers.



Left: Melissa Travers (Microsoft), Donna Edwards (CRM), Mariano Gomez (GP), John Lowther (GP), Julie Yack (CRM), Gus Gonzalez (CRM), Jivtesh Singh (GP), Mark Polino (GP)
 
Right: Per Mogensen (NAV), Chad Sogge (Microsoft), Belinda Allen (GP), Jerry Weinstock (CRM), Charles Allen (GP), Juris de Gruyter (AX), Roohi Shaikh (CRM)

After breakfast, it was time for my first session of Convergence 2013 – CSGP24 – Administering SQL Server for Microsoft Dynamics GP. My session was attended by over 255 people, with just a few seats left for a full room.

The day did not precisely continue as I expected. After my session, I came down with a severe case of conjunctivitis (commonly known as “Pink Eye”) and had to quickly seek out an urgent care clinic to obtain a prescription antibiotic. As such my afternoon session, CSGP32 – Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client For Smaller Companies was conducted by my co-presenters Kevin Racer and Daryl Anderson, with Daryl sitting in for me throughout the session.

Frankly, this was a first getting ‘sick’ at any event I have attended and have to say it was quite frustrating and disappointing. As such, I went back to the hotel to nurse my eyes for the rest of the day – yes, that meant no parties, grr!!!

Until next post!

Biography

Kofi A. Annan of Ghana, the seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations, is the first to be elected from the ranks of UN staff. His first five-year term began on 1 January 1997 and, following his subsequent re-appointment by the UN Member States, he will begin a second five-year term on 1 January 2002.
