It is august 2014 which means that most people who go on vacation in the summer period are either just returning or maybe still enjoying their well deserved rest. At least I did for two weeks in Interlaken this year.
Is also means we are at the verge of the new event and release season which is each fall since the last few years.
NAV2015 will be released this year and I am very exited about the new features that will be shipped this version.
I will be attending and speaking at four out of five events.
1. Directions USA | San Diego
The first event is Directions USA in San Diego, from September 14th to 16th. I always enjoy Directions USA since the atmosphere feels nicer than in europe or at least that is my opinion. It is also the event where most of the Liberty Grove associates get together and meet each year.
2. Directions EMEA | Poznan (Poland)
Each year EMEA and US switch in priority and this year EMEA is second after USA. Poznan Poland this year. The contents of the events is more or less the same.
The event is from October 8th – 10th.
This year is the first year that there is a dedicated MVP Track where 10 sessions are hosted my MVP’s. The track is lead by Gary Winter, a new MVP since this year and part of the Partner Ready Software team. I will be doing a session about designing MiniApp applications in Dynamics NAV.
3. NAVUG | St. Louis
Attending NAVUG summit was on my bucket list for many years and this year I will be representing Liberty Grove and presenting.
I do a lot of work for US customers and look forward to meeting some of them in real person. The event dates are October 14th to 17th.
4. NAVTechDays | Antwerp
I must admit my favorite, at least from a content perspective. This event is hosted in a cinema with huge screens and fantastic seats.
Partner Ready Software will be presenting this year again and we hope to bring you some new and fresh ideas as you are used to from us.
The event is in November from 20th to 21st.
Like last year there are pre-conference workshops. Together with Gary Winter I will be hosting a Partner Ready Software workshop again. There is still room available so book your seats fast.
So the question is what is the 5th event and why am I not there.
In November there is also Convergence EMEA in Barcelona. Unfortunately at the same time you have MVP Summit in Redmond. Since the latter is more interesting from my own development I choose to attend this and enjoy three days of inside Microsoft information.
Hope to see you in person at one of the events!
