  • Blog Post: PDC on your Windows Phone 7

    Vertigo Software just released their PDC10 Windows Phone 7 app.  That’s going to make it a lot easier to follow along this year.  If you have a WP7 device go download it now . This year we’ll be broadcasting pretty much every minute of the PDC.  As part of building out the infrastructure...
  • Blog Post: The Power of Possibilities Perfectly Presented to Partners

    Try to say that 10 times fast.  :) The theme for Convergence this year is the Power of Possibilities.  I’ll be presenting in a few sessions this year and may get to show a demo or two in a keynote.  I’ll be in ST05 with some great support by Shan McArthur of ADXSTUDIO .  I’ll also...
  • Blog Post: PDC PDQ CRM ERP… OMG IDK

    I finally got myself registered for PDC last week.  I noticed that we’ve now published a few Dynamics sessions.  These look to be really interesting.  Since PDC is the conference where we talk about the future of the Microsoft platform, I’m anxious to hear what Andy Bybee and Humberto...
  • Blog Post: ISVs gaining access to PartnerSource

    I posted the link to the Dynamics CRM Statement of Direction a short while ago.  It is located on PartnerSource which requires registration.  Typically this is for partners that resell a Microsoft Dynamics product. I recently discovered a way for ISVs who do not resell Dynamics products to...
  • Blog Post: WPC: ISV Pre-Day Track

    This year the ISV team set up a special pre-day this year at WPC.  Having sat through a couple of sessions so far I think this is a great idea.  It’s been fantastic to have all the content focused in the same room on the same day.  This is much better than having sessions spread out throughout...
  • Blog Post: A Dynamics Map to your Success

    While on the topic of WPC, I thought I’d pass along the agenda the Dynamics team has put together for Dynamics partners.  This document lists all the various keynotes, breakouts, parties and pretty much anything else you’d want to know about WPC if you’re high on Dynamics (this is legal in Houston...

  • Blog Post: Streaming Hot Silverlight

    I’m nothing if not persistent! :)  You may have noticed that the Office Developers Conference was in February and I only just managed to post the video of my demo today.  There’s a story there. There are a lot of reasons for it taking that long.  Mostly it just took a couple of months...
  • Blog Post: Office Developers Conference – Demoing CRM Online

    Back in February I had the opportunity to demo CRM Online to a few thousand developers during Kurt DelBene’s keynote at the Microsoft Office System Developer Conference in San Jose.  Girish , a team member, has been working on a cool new CRM demo and I was able to show a few snippets of it. ...

    If you're an ISV building cool stuff on Dynamics CRM or Dynamics AX and are planning to attend Convergence EMEA drop me a note . I'd love to meet up and see what you've been up to. I'll be in Copenhagen from Oct 21st through Oct 25th. Conferences can be a real drain between travel, jet lag, long hours...
  • Blog Post: Dynamics: The icing on the Microsoft cake.. er.. stack

    A few months ago I was asked to take on a new role at Microsoft. We've kicked off an initiative within Developer and Platform Evangelism to help drive ISV evangelism for the Microsoft Dynamics brand. I was asked to help drive the content development and programs. What an opportunity! I jumped at the...

  • Blog Post: Defragging Microsoft

    Steve Ballmer ran a defrag on the org and it sure looks good. From a customer perspective the three new divisions provide a much clearer picture of the major directions we’re going in. There is nothing but goodness on all three fronts. On the Platform Products & Services side… Windows Vista rocks...
