I am a little behind posting this one, but I think it is quite important to spread the news widely.
David Musgrave, now of WinthropDC, used to work at Microsoft and was the main author of the Developing for Dynamics GP blog which was part of the msdn blogs. This blog was an absolutely great resource on Dynamics GP, especially on more technical areas.
However, showing the impermanence of the Internet, earlier this year Microsoft announced that they would be closing down that platform. In order that useful posts weren’t lost, David has downloaded all of the old posts from the blog, which he deemed still useful on current versions, and imported them onto his new WinthropDC blog.
All of these posts have been categorised as Developing for Dynamics GP; in time they will also start to show up in search engine results.
Microsoft Dynamics GP MVP Shawn Dorward’s son, Taylor, was involved in a drowning accident a few weeks ago. Thanks to Taylor’s friends and the emergency teams, Taylor survived but has suffered significant brain damage; he is now on the long road to recovery and making great progress.
A Go Fund Me has been running to assist in paying for Taylor’s medical expenses.
To assist further, MVP David Musgrave has decided to give 10% of all new sales of Winthrop Development Consultants products (GP Power Tools and Batch Posting Service Toolkit) sold until the end of September to Shawn.
Kevin Rasmussen from Ethotech told David that he will match the same offer for their products. David also has a challenge for other Dynamics GP ISVs: see David’s blog for details.
Please, if you can contribute something to help Taylor, even $5, do so and, if you’re an ISV, take a look at David’s blog.
