The next big convention is almost there … and in one of the most interesting cities: New Orleans … the city of Jazz ;°).
There are a few things I would like to draw your attention to:
If you wonder if I made this up myself … no I didn't . I received it from Microsoft, but I found it worthwhile to forward to you. In my experience (I have been to quite some conventions the last few years), you can get a lot out of it, as long as you plan it efficiently ahead.
A question could be: "is it wise to invest in such conventions while we're in a worldwide crisis?" . Well, my opinion is simple: If you don't invest in it .. you do less business. Just realize my yourself what you have to invest to do the same amount of networking, gaining insights, partnering, … . In times of crises, it's not time to slow down, but you have to kick up the pace. (Who knows I'm just saying this to justify my attendance … )
So, see you in New Orleans!
I realize this is not really "brand new information", and probably you all already know about this, but still, there is a good reason why I wanted to bring this to your attention (again?).
There is a new book in town, which is now actually published and ready to sell (just got the information from Packt today). It is called "Implementing Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009".
I had the opportunity to be one of the reviewers (more exactly a technical reviewer) of this book. A very time-consuming job, but really worthwhile - although, I wonder if they really took my comments seriously (I'll have to wait for that until I receive the final copy ).
Reviewing the book also gives a pretty good idea what is in it, doesn't it? Well, my opinion is positive … let me make that very clear. I'm a developer, not an implementer, so in some way, may be, that was a good thing. The technical things were not really new to me, so I could review that for its contents. On the other hand, the implementing-side (which is the main part of the book), was more tough for me to review on the contents, but it definitely gave me a feeling in the way it is written (on explanatory level). Well: on both sides, Vjeko and David did a very good job! Therefore, I really would like to recommend this book to all implementers among us! Developers? Not really … they are not the people who this book is targeted to. My favorite chapter was the one about the Role Tailored User Experience. It gave me a really good idea what it's all about, and how implementers will have to (or can) deal with this.
May be you know Vjekoslav Babic (Navigate Into Success) and David Roys (Gaspode's Brain Dump) from their blog? If not: shame on you! If you read my blog (and apparently you do), and suppose (suppose…) you value it for some reason … you will definitely find their blog worthwhile. You'll find out that they really … can write.
Good blogs, good book … good job!
