As we approach the end of 2018, I wanted to provide an update as well as wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
2018 has been a great year with a number of conferences and even some changes to the distribution model used by Winthrop Development Consultants.
The conference season started in May with the GPUG Amplify South Africa 2018 conference in Johannesburg, South Africa. Jennifer accompanied me to South Africa as we were heading to Spain afterwards to meet up with four friends and cycling the Camino De Santiago (830km).
After returning home (exhausted), the work was focussed on the changes needed to distribute the Winthrop Development Consultants’ products directly as my agreement with Mekorma came to an end. Both the software products themselves needed registration system updates as well as internal systems needed to be created and fine tuned. Thanks to everyone for your patience while these changes are flowing through. It will take until July 2019 before all customers are moved over to the new subscription and registration systems.
The next conference was the GP Tech Conference 2018 in Fargo, ND, USA. It is always great to return to the home of Microsoft Dynamics GP. While this conference is fairly small, it is an opportunity to see all the partners and ISVs and get the latest news on Dynamics GP from the development team.
The final conference was the GPUG Summit 2018 in Phoenix, AZ, USA and included a week’s worth of Dexterity training before the conference. Jennifer came with me for her first Summit experience and her assistance was invaluable with the running of Winthrop’s Expo booth.
After the conferences were over, it was finally possible to concentrate on the development of updates (not just registration system changes) to the Winthrop products. New builds of Visual Studio Integration Toolkit and Batch Posting Service Toolkit have already been released and the next build of GP Power Tools will be released when it is ready early in the new year. I have a huge wishlist of enhancements and new features and am really excited about what this next build will provide to the community.
Now it is time to take some time out from coding and enjoy some downtime with family and friends.
Just today, a parcel arrived at my home from the United States. As a number of my colleagues have already posted, it was my 208 Granite Award from GPUG for my work in the community. Thanks everyone. Nice way to finish off the year with an award.
Looking forward to 2019 and sharing another successful year with everyone.
See you next year.
