It's time to announce the second 'edition' of Directions EMEA.
What is Directions?
Directions is a Dynamics NAV only convention by and for partners.This is the place for ISV's to announce, launch, demo, inform about their products. This is the place to find horizontal, vertical, diagonal … solutions. This is the place to get inspiration, to get ideas for questions your were struggling with.This is the place to … partner (you read "party" the first time, didn't you? )!
As you could read in the post about Directions EMEA 2008, I'm pretty fond of what's going on there in general. In some way, every single person has a connection with NAV. And they paid money to find something there. A solution? A Partner? A wife? (sorry guys … not many women to find there …). So, this creates some kind of "general understanding". Anyone can be interesting to any-other-one.
The entire convention is organized in a way that when people are not in the sessions, they are put together … to network … to find each other. During reception - there's expo … and during expo - there is reception. I mean, you can go find your solution, partners, answers, ... in a very enjoyable an opening atmosphere. You know what I mean.
Enough advertisement. I only want to get y'all over there so I wouldn't be alone (kidding…). Indeed: waldo wouldn't be "waldo" when he wouldn't attend, would he. It seems that I'm even going to present a session there. Which one? Tell you later ;°).

C U There!
A new serie of MSDN/Technet evening-sessions regarding Microsoft Dynamics NAV is planned in Belgium.
As before, Kurt Juvyns of Microsoft Belgium is the driving force behind this … . He is not much of a frequent blogger (sorry, Kurt ), but he sure still supports the community like no other… (what else can I say about my colleague-Belgian-Dynamics-Community-boardmember ).
