Episode 109: UG Summit 2021 Debrief
Last week we attended the UG Summit 2021 in Houston, TX...many people were concerned about having an event in person and a large number of attendees decided to attend virtually instead.
In this episode, Microsoft MVPs Sarah Jelinek, Nicholas Hayduk, and Gus Gonzalez sit down and discuss their experience attending the event in person and whether they will be attending the event in 2022.
Episode 108: Let's talk about the latest licensing changes!
I'm never really excited to see announcements around licensing for Dynamics 365 and Power Apps, but I've been looking forward to this announcement for months!
But first, as usual, I went into a tangent about something else, this time I discuss July 1st, and how important of a date it is for me personally.
Episode 107: Who is the father of Dynamics CRM/365?
There's someone who works at Microsoft who has been involved in the release of Microsoft Dynamics 365 (previously known by different names) since its Beta version.
He led the creation of the first version of the product, then the creation and release of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0, 4.0, and then responsible for taking it Online!
And I believe that understanding this person's role in the history of Microsoft Dynamics 365 is important if we are trying to see where the product is going in the future.
