This Saturday there is a fantastic event happening: Dynamics Saturday 365 Madrid.
Apparently it will be one of the biggest Dynamics 365 Saturdays events celebrated so far. Apart from Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (CRM), this time there will also be presentations for Finance and Operations, and Business Central over 3 rooms. My session will be in Calcium room at 16:50, see below the schedule:
You may have noticed a small little pumpkin in the first picture, that is Ruperta. She is our special guest who will help us with the Quiz on Saturday 🙂 For those who don’t know her, Ruperta was part of one of the most famous TV game shows in Spain years ago (Un, dos, tres… responda otra vez), where the participants were also challenged with a quiz.
After the great feedback we received from our Summit EMEA Quiz in Dublin, we want to continue the show in Madrid, but this time in Spanish and with new questions 🙂
The whole Quiz will be an interactive session where you will be able to provide your answers from your mobile device and see the results in real time. We will take one question at the time, share the results in the main screen and discuss the different answers. Our purpose is to create an entertaining contest where everyone can learn something.
And, very important…!
Thanks to the Dynamics 365 Saturday organisation, the first 3 winners will have a amazing award, so get ready and don’t miss it!
See you on Saturday!
Time flies and it is already weeks since the Summit EMEA conference in Dublin last month. It was definitely a great event and I really enjoyed meeting the community and exchanging experiences.
Apart from the Quiz session I already mentioned in my previous post:
I also had the opportunity to collaborate in other 2 presentations, which were fun. One of them was with Microsoft, where we talk about Dynamics and Digital Transformation happening at Investec. They found interesting some of the changes we are currently carrying out. Although it was challenging to be in such a big stage, I feel like it went well and I received some positive feedback.
The other one was with my MVP colleagues and some great member of the Dynamics community to talk about integrations. This topic is always an endless one and it was funny to hear the stories from the panel as well as the audience.
The Summit EMEA 2018 conference in Dublin is almost there and we have been preparing some tough, fun and educational questions for those who like a challenge.
The Quiz will be focus, mainly from a technical perspective, on Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement, CRM and other related technologies like Azure.
The whole Quiz will be an interactive session where you will be able to provide your answers from your mobile device and see the results in real time. We will take one question at the time, share the results in the main screen and discuss the different answers.
Our purpose is to create an entertaining contest where everyone can learn something.
But that is not all! For those who win the Quiz, there will some great awards, don’t miss it 🙂

What a great event we enjoyed last Saturday! 🙂
As I mentioned in my previous post, the Dynamics 365 Saturday event took part in London in the Microsoft Paddington offices. It was a great experience to see so many participants (150+) in such a collaborative environment.
You can now find below the slides for the presentation that my MVP colleague Baris and I used during our session, which covered the new features and deprecations coming with the version 9 for Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement.
Finally, I would like to share this great picture that was taken on Saturday morning just to kick off the event with James Phillips, great memory 🙂
This weekend there is a great community event in London for the Dynamics professionals and fans: DYNAMICS 365 Saturday
The event is actually running for 2 days, starting on Friday (today!) with the Hackathon and multiple activities around it:
Then on Saturday we will have more presentations, including mine: Dynamics 365 Version 9 New Features & Deprecations
During this presentation, that I’ll be sharing with my MVP colleague Baris Kanlica, we will cover the main features coming with the new version of Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (our old CRM) and highlight those that have been deprecated.
Microsoft is really supporting the event this year and James Phillips, Dynamics Corporate Vice President, will kick off the event.
We hope you will enjoy it and learn something useful 🙂
Time flies and suddenly 2018 will be there, when the next Summit EMEA will take place in Dublin from 24th to the 26th of April.
During the Summit EMEA, multiple users groups will participate in the conference and offer several events including presentations, essential peer-to-peer knowledge exchanges, product insight forums, and networking opportunities.
My main focus will be on the D365UG|CRMUG user group . This week we have had our first committee meeting to discuss the agenda structure and how the sessions are going to be organised, very exciting… 🙂
If you would like to be a speaker, watch this space because there will be a call for papers very soon.
I’ll keep on posting any news.
This year I’ll be presenting at the CRMUG Summit EMEA 2017 celebrated in Amsterdam. The idea started last year when I was speaking with my Microsoft AX MVP colleague Antonio @_Gilabert_ at the MVP Summit.
With Dynamics 365, CRM and AX are closer than ever, so we thought that it would be great to have a presentation together and share our experience and view with the community.
We would like to do a functional and practical session where we will show how both platforms can be integrated, in the new Dynamics 365 world, to deliver a real business scenario. Our challenge is to use the new Microsoft Flow and Common Data Service for the integration. At the moment, they are still very new and many capabilities are very limited.
Although we are still working in the demo, we are also preparing a PowerApp to improve the user experience and present how they can be useful alongside Dynamics 365 for Sales and Operations.
I would also like to say thank you to Hugo de Jesús, who is helping us a lot to prepare the presentation.
You can find more information about the schedule in this link.
We hope you enjoy the event, and of course, our session! 🙂
This year I have got the opportunity to be part of the CRMUG Summit EMEA Programming Committee. We are a group of volunteers who share some of our time and energy to help make CRMUG Summit EMEA an incredible experience for each attendee.
Some of the activities I have been helping out is with the presentations for the development track. Finding the right topics and great speakers is actually a good challenge.
For those who are attending, we hope you enjoy it!
See you soon in Amsterdam 🙂

Microsoft Developer Network has just launched. Microsoft wants to enhance the experience to add better support for the growing number of developers that are embracing Microsoft’s platform and technologies for the first time.
There were a few goals Microsoft targeted with the Microsoft Developer Network experience:
- Simple: The new Microsoft Developer Network site is designed to help developers easily find information and get started with Microsoft more effortlessly. They heard from the community that finding the right information, often spread between different locations, could be challenging. The Microsoft Developer Network addresses that feedback by providing a single point of entry for all developers.
- Relevant: They want to meet developers where they are and talk with them on their terms. With the Microsoft Developer Network, an iOS developer, for example, can quickly understand the opportunity available from our platform and then easily navigate to the educational or technical content he needs to get started.
- Community Driven: Microsoft has an incredible developer ecosystem, and they wanted to provide even more opportunity for the community to engage with them and with each other. They designed the Microsoft Developer Network with that in mind, creating a “Perspectives” section with community blogs, an integrated social feed, and a “Connect” area that allows developers to tell their stories, get advice and connect with them directly.
The site launch happened last week for English-based geographies, but this is just the beginning of a phased worldwide launch. Expect to see the global launch roll out over the next few months!

In this session we will create from scratch a Windows 8 Modern UI application to solve the needs of a fictional company field service representative. The focus of the talk will be to demonstrate the powerful and yet easy to create user experiences that Windows 8 can deliver for Line of Business Applications.
