Convergence 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA has come to an end and it is now time to post the final wrap up.

I really enjoyed the social and networking aspects of the conference and loved presenting. It is also great to hear feedback from customers and partners about how the work done in the community (forums, blogs, etc.) is appreciated.

#CONV15 – Convergence 2015 Atlanta – Post Conference and Getting Home


David Meego - Click for blog homepageConvergence2015

When I booked my flights for Convergence 2015 in Atlanta, I specifically added extra days after the conference so I could relax and spend time with Mariano and his family. Maybe we could do some sight seeing as business travel often fails to take in the sights around the city you have travelled to.

#CONV15 – Convergence 2015 Atlanta – Day 3

Having managed to escape the zombies at the Rock-n-Rave party, Mariano and I were ready for another day at Convergence 2015.

We left home reasonably early, but as there had been some rain in the morning, the traffic on the freeway was banked right back so that even the entrance ramps were car parks. Mariano decided to take a different route into the city and while it did mean that we were continuously moving, I don’t think it saved us any time. 🙂

#CONV15 – Convergence 2015 Atlanta – Day 2

I was exhausted already and it was only Day 2 of the Convergence 2015 conference.

As there were no sessions Mariano and I planned to attend first thing in the morning, we started the day a bit later. The downside is that the morning traffic had built up by the time we left and so it took a bit longer to get into Downtown Atlanta.

After the Opening Keynote and the Microsoft Dynamics GP general session, it was time for lunch.

I don’t have any facts and figures this year, but the logistics in feeding this many people must be amazing and I am very pleased that I work in the IT industry and not hospitality.

#CONV15 – Convergence 2015 Atlanta – Day 1 – Opening Keynote

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.

Wow, Time has gone so quickly. I had the good intentions of posting about each day of the Convergence 2015 conference on the next day. I had already created all the blank placeholder posts in preparation.

Then reality struck…. With days starting around 6am to get ready and drive into town and finishing at midnight or later, it was just not possible to write the blog posts and get some (not enough) sleep.

Anyhow, I am back in Australia now and will attempt to give you a taste of what the conference was like.

#CONV15 – Convergence 2015 Atlanta – Getting There


David Meego - Click for blog homepageConvergence2015

Hello from Atlanta, Georgia, USA. My journey to get to Convergence 2015 was relatively uneventful (which is good), but long (which is expected). I booked my flight with Delta as their base hub is Atlanta. My itinerary showed that I would be able to complete the journey to Atlanta with two flights: Perth to Sydney and Sydney to Atlanta. This sounded great as I normally have to take three or four flights to get to my destinations in the USA.

David is coming to Convergence 2015 in Atlanta


David Meego - Click for blog homepageThe Microsoft Dynamics Convergence blog recently posted an article about the extraordinary lineup of featured speakers for Microsoft Convergence 2015 Atlanta on 16th to 19th March 2015.

What it failed to mention is the “Dynamics Duo” would be back in person to spread knowledge and fun amongst the Microsoft Dynamics GP community.
