Lucas Miller - Click for blog homepageThis is a reposting of an article Lucas Miller originally wrote on my Developing for Dynamics GP blog.

Hello!

I just want to first take a second to introduce myself since this is my first post on the Developing for Dynamics GP blog.  My name is Lucas Miller and I’ve been supporting Microsoft Dynamics GP since 2005.  Like much of the team I’m based out of Fargo, ND, USA.  I’ve been married for almost 2 years and my wife and I are expecting our first in just under 3 weeks as of this writing.  My main focus has been on the system side, but the last couple years I’ve been focusing on import tools (e.g. Integration Manager and eConnect) and I was deeply involved in the Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client development and readiness efforts.
