    4 Activities to Add to Your Itinerary for DSLUG Conference 2019

    It's never too early to start planning your itinerary for a conference. A week may seem like a long time, but your time at a conference always goes faster than you think. You wouldn't want to get to the end of the week feeling like you missed out – and I'm sure your boss wouldn't like that either.  A well-planned schedule can make a huge difference and ensure that you get to all key activities and breakout sessions during the week.

    Dynamics SL User Group Conference, scheduled for April 15 – 18, 2019 in Anaheim, California, is an annual event specifically for Microsoft Dynamics SL users, partners, and solution providers. As the only one of its kind, this is your chance to collaborate with peers that have similar challenges and learn from the brightest in the industry.

    With only three 3 months until the event, you'll want to start planning your itinerary now. We've put together a short list of key activities you will want to add to your schedule.

    #1 Academy Sessions

    Although Academy sessions are an additional fee, they are well worth the investment. Academy sessions take breakout sessions one step further and provide an in-depth experience. These sessions are designed to be interactive and offer a more traditional class room environment to foster learning. Sessions are available on topics including Distribution, Project, Financials, Administration, Payroll, Customization Manager, SQL Server, SDK, and more. To get a better feel for topics offered this year, we've gone ahead and provided a sample list of sessions available:

    • SDK Bootcamp: This session is one of the longest with three full days of hands-on expert led instruction. This session is designed for experienced programmers that are new to Dynamics SL or experienced and want to further their knowledge. To learn more read the full topic list. If you are interested in attending, use coupon code DSLUGSDK200 when checking out and save $200 on registration through January 21st.
    • Nuts and Bolts for Payroll: This session is a deep dive into the inner workings of payroll. It's a great way to learn what tables and fields are affected when processing. This session will walk you through a payroll cycle process for a pay period and month-end and year-end closing.
    • Digging into Your SL Data – SQL for Beginners: This session is great for anyone interesting in learning how to write queries and reports and troubleshoot problems in SQL. This session will start at the beginning and walk you through installing SQL Server Management Studio. At the end, you'll walk away ready to take on your own SL data.

    #2 Welcome Reception

    The Welcome Reception is always a highlight of any conference experience. It's a great opportunity to relax, enjoy great food and drinks, and network with other attendees in an informal setting. Although you may be tempted to call it an early night after a long day of travel, consider the benefit of getting a head start on making lasting connections. The reception is taking place Monday, April 15th from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.

    #3 Opening General Session

    Be sure to jump out of bed early grab some breakfast and head to the Opening General Session on Tuesday, April 16th at 8:15 a.m. This session will set the tone for the rest of the week and provide valuable information on DSLUG community and the Dynamics SL product roadmap.

    #4 Special Downtown Disney Experience at Splitsville

    Mark your calendar for Wednesday, April 17th from 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. because you won't want to miss this exclusive experience.
