Note: I couldn't get the session name to be changed as the schedule had already been printed by the time I requested the name change.

I decided then to go for lunch and had a chance to catch up with my good friend Linda Rose from RoseASP. Our conversation went from personal to business, to how we spend our time at work. Linda is always a very interesting person to converse with as she has so much knowledge about the Dynamics GP application hosting space, plus she has some awesome anecdotes to go along.
After lunch, I decided to go check out the room where I will be delivering my next presentation, and lo and behold there was Linda, ready to deliver her session, Upgrading to Dynamics GP 2016 in the Cloud: 3 simple steps. I decided to show my support and sat into the session, where I learned a few interesting things about cloud hosting and licensing.

Finalizing my session, I had to run quickly over to the Expo hall where I would be mic'ing up to be interviewed live for the first GPUG Amplify live stream event. This was actually a new and innovative approach by Dynamic Communities to get information out in real time to folks who were not able to attend Amplify. The live stream encompassed the views of customers, partners, Microsoft staff, and Microsoft MVPs alike on Amplify. The following is the interview I conducted with host Bob McAdam.
Following my interview, I met up with my good friend Kari-Anne Paterson with Briware Solutions in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Kari-Anne was up next for a live interview with Bob McAdam.

After Kari-Anne's interview, we decided to go sit at the Mekorma Hub to decompress and catch up. Kari and I share our Caribbean heritage so talking about music and reggae came very natural to us - Kari is Jamaican born. We listened to a few tunes on my computer and the day was over by the time we decided to move on.
I had dinner with my Mekorma colleagues and Njevity folks over at McCormick & Schmick's Grille, where we got to enjoy some good shrimp kisses as you can tell by the picture below.
