Each year GPUG (Dynamics GP User Group) recognises three individuals from the Microsoft Dynamics GP community who go above and beyond to help others.
These individuals will be recognised as GPUG All Stars at the upcoming GPUG Summit in Nashville, TN, USA.
Please vote now… there are only 2.5 weeks left before the poll closes.
It has been a while since I posted a Friday Funny post or a puzzle for you to solve. So today this shall be rectified. Here is something to keep you entertained as I travel to Fargo, ND, USA for the Microsoft Dynamics GP Tech Conference 2017.
The following Mathematical Challenge is one that is causing confusion all over the interwebs and is one which I believe can have two legitimate answers. However I would argue that only one of those two answers is actually correct.
At the end of July, Terry Heley from Microsoft posted the System Requirements for the upcoming Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 release.
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 is currently scheduled for release in the December 2017 timeframe.
Hello again Microsoft Dynamics GP Partners.
Following on from my previous article about the sessions I am involved with at the Dynamics GP Tech Conference 2017 (being held on the 8th to 10th August 2017 at the Microsoft Campus in Fargo, ND, USA), I am pleased to announce that I will be presenting one more session. This one is all about how developers can use GP Power Tools to make their work simpler and faster.
Continuing my series about robotics and using non Lego devices with EV3 Basic, here is an article which demonstrates how to use a camera and heat sensor.
The Robocup Junior Australia competition has introduced a new Rescue division this year (2017) for a Maze rescue. The Maze rescue challenge is much closer to a real life example of a how a rescue robot can save lives.
Maze rescue does not involve any line following, as real buildings don’t have lines on the ground marking paths to follow. The robot must navigate a building, represented by a maze, by identifying walls and working its way around the maze. It needs to explore every corridor and room to locate victims wearing Hi-Vis vests (represented by bright colours on the walls) and identify whether a victim is alive or dead (by looking for a heat source).
This seventh article covers using the Mindsensors IR Temperature Sensor for EV3 or NXT and Charmed Labs PixyCam (CMUcam5) for Lego with the EV3 Basic extensions for Microsoft Small Basic.
Microsoft is working on a tool to help Community Leaders have successful meetings.
The Community Leader Zone helps match speakers, topics and sponsors to allow you to focus on leading. I think that all GPUG Chapter Leaders would find this tool a great resource for making their meetings even more successful.
As discussed before, I am continuing to mentor for the All Saints’ College Robotics club, even though both my sons are now at university. I am also the Rescue Advisor on the Robocup Junior West Australian Committee for 2017.
Having a hobby that allows me to play with Lego and write software that actually does something physical in the real world is awesome. I would recommend purchasing a Lego Mindstorms EV3 set for any boy or girl that wants to learn to code while having lots of fun.
This sixth article covers using the Mindsensors Multiplexer for NXT/EV3 Motors with the EV3 Basic extensions for Microsoft Small Basic.
