Actually this should have been the title of my yesterday post reporting our first annual event, a major milestone in our 1 year history. A milestone showing clearly that what we hoped for, when Mark, Arend-Jan and I casted the die little over a year ago, has come true: a local dynamics community to enable Dynamics pros to meet (and interchange) and get informed, and of course, supported by all those who have been involved so far.
Initially I had in mind to start of A Chronicle with this milestone passing into a hindsight of our short history. Clearly I didn’t get to that yesterday as diner was put on the table and Thursday evening hockey training was calling. So here I am to continue what I had set off to do.
I could write a pure factual report on the four events we organized and, yes, that makes sense. From the very beginning, where the DDC community first gathered on October 26, 2010, in Barneveld. A 80 NAV pros gathering made possible by the sponsoring partners of the first hour: Imtech, Xperit, DSA Vision, VCD Healthcare, IDYN, SQL Perform and Mprise. A gathering followed by our February 3, 2011, event, also in Barneveld, with a 90 pieces audience, succeeded by our third event in Veenendaal on May 19, 2011.
Events with a stable slowly growing size of audience amplified by the number of sponsors (18 in total today and still increasing), the number of followers, and not in the least the willingness of people to present.
But it could also be a less factual report, highlighting the enthusiasm that we met, the networking taking place during the meal we serve on our events or the drink we offer after the presentations have been held.
And also about other plans/ambitions we have, but have not yet acted upon, likewise not being just a community for NAV techies, but really provide a Dutch Dynamics platform. For all those using, programming, configuring Dynamics products. Get involved and contribute!
Keep following us, keep helping us, keep in touch!
