I mentioned the other week I am at reIMAGINE this year. I realise I’ve been fairly quiet recently, post-wise, and I am not sure how much I’ll be blogging while I am away, but I intend to return in October and get to get some regularity back to my posting.
Actually, I may take the opportunity to bore you all over the course of my 20 hour trip to Fargo from the UK; I set off at 0700 UK time and arrive 2200 North Dakota time after being on four different flights.
The first is on Working with Excel, Power BI and Dynamics and is being presented by MVP Belinda Allen:
The second is on Workflow 2.0 and is being presented by yours truly:
If you want to attend training, you will need to select one of the two available courses (unfortunately, you can’t sign up to both) when registering for reIMAGINE.
Pam Misialek did a post at the end of last month about the type of content content although exact details of sessions aren’t available yet.
She followed up a few days ago with a post pointing out, despite what many appear to think, that reIMAGINE is not the same as Amplify.
Amplify is a customer orientated conference, whereas reIMAGINE is aimed at partners and will therefore have content aimed at partners.
Key points from Pam’s post are:
- The new US Sales team dedicated to helping partners sell more GP will be at reIMAGINE. They are not order takers. They were strategically hired to help partners sell more.
- We will talk about the future of Dynamics GP with an updated roadmap.
- The consultant track has more advanced sessions that go into troubleshooting.
- The developer track will have new content plus content on PowerApps and PowerFlow.
One final point about this reIMAGINE, is that it will be the first Microsoft conference to which I have been. I don’t know if this will be a selling point to anyone, but it’ll be nice to meet the people I have been talking to online over the last few years.
