Today was the first day of the actual Convergence 2015 conference.
The first stop for the day was to one of the Speaker Rehearsal Rooms so that Mariano could fine tune his role in the MVP portion of the Microsoft Dynamics GP general session later in the day.
After the rehearsal we joined the long queues of conference attendees heading across the road from the Georgia World Congress Center to the Philips Arena (Home of the Atlanta Hawks) for the Opening Keynote for Convergence 2015.
The Opening Keynote for Convergence 2015 featured Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO as well as Kirill Tatarinov, Microsoft Executive Vice President, Business Solutions. It was very well attended (I believe the conference had about 12,000 attendees), which meant that we had to go to the upper level to find a seat. Here is the view from the “Gods”.
Thanks to my camera’s 20x optical zoom, I was able to get some closer photos during the session.

sensors, cameras, speakers, microphones, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC and more)
For the actual content of the Opening Keynote, the best method would be to watch it yourself online via the Convergence Video Library.

After the keynote, I headed back over to the Sidney J. Marcus Auditorium in the GWCC for the Microsoft Dynamics GP Product Roadmap and Strategy general session. Mariano had already left as he had to be there early to get prepared.
Day 1, to be continued …
