The morning started out with the General Session, hosted by Bob McAdam (Twitter: @4mcadam). It was amazing to see all the folks who were in attendance, perhaps for the first time, in one place for this conference. The numbers really sunk in by looking at the crowd and it was really great to know that this conference will really take off in the next few years.
Jeff Trosen and Chad Sogge (Twitter: @CSogge) were next to discuss the Microsoft Dynamics GP roadmap and the innovations that are being implemented in the product.
As is customary at the General Session, we were treated to some GP 2016 demos by the dynamic duo of Jody Christiansen (Twitter: @JodiChrist) and Jennifer Ranz (Twitter: @JenifferRanz1), both program managers with the Microsoft Dynamics GP team.

After the General Session, it was time for my first presentation of the week: Microsoft Dynamics GP Administration (at 10:15 AM local time) which focused on 3 main areas: administering the environment, administering the application, and administering the web client. All in all it was an excellent presentation with a great (standing room only) attendees. This presentation mostly covered considerations for a trouble-free administrator and end-user experience in a Microsoft Dynamics GP setting, rather than re-hashing the different configuration elements within the application.
