Convergence 2012 was another great conference! Houston was windy and cloudy, but every now and then the clouds would dissipate and we’d get a little taste of Texas sunshine. The Expo looked great and even the food was good. All in all, this year’s list of highlights seems even longer than last year’s: I discovered some great new products (and several exciting updates for old ones) at the Expo; sat in on some very interesting seminars and panel discussions (and learned a few new tricks); and loved Colin Powell’s keynote address—it was the perfect send-off.
(And I haven’t even mentioned all the amazing parties.)
It was wonderful to catch up with everyone I hadn’t seen in a while, and really nice to connect a few faces to some of the new names and voices I’ve been working with recently.
This year I brought a video camera to Convergence—not to embarrass anybody, but to show-off a few vendors I work with and love, and even a few who, even though I don’t work with them (yet), really impressed me. I’ll be posting these short videos over the next week or so, and I hope you enjoy them.
I do have footage from a few parties, too—but nobody panic. It’s just a quick montage of a fantastic week. I’ll save that post for the end.
For now, I’ll let two experts I’ve followed for quite a while now introduce themselves:
I’m very pleased I had the opportunity to meet Mariano Gomez and David Musgrave last week. They are both incredibly knowledgeable GP gurus, and they also both consistently contribute to the virtual, worldwide conversations surrounding Dynamics GP. If you haven’t visited their blogs, you should. Checkout David’s at: Developing for Dynamics GP and Mariano’s at: The Dynamics GP Blogster.
And stay tuned for some great videos!
