Saving the Developing for Dynamics GP blog


David Meego - Click for blog homepageMany of you have probably read an article or two from my previous blog on Microsoft’s MSDN, the Developing for Dynamics GP blog. This blog was created in July 2008 and had published 1,130 articles by the time I left Microsoft in October 2014.
