Unless you’ve been living under a rock, that’s surrounded by a Faraday cage, with no power and completely removed from anybody and everybody – you will have heard about Scottish Summit.
If, by some bizarre circumstance, you haven’t then allow me to do a quick overview.
Scottish Summit sees over 100 speakers from all over the world converging in Glasgow on the 29th February. This will be THE biggest free community event you’ll have seen. With 90 sessions in one day, in 9 tracks, there is something for everyone who works in the Microsoft arena.
Coupled with this on the Thursday there are some amazing training events. These aren’t free, but are excellent value and a phenomenal opportunity to receive training from the best there is! Then, on the Friday, there are FIVE hackathon/events taking place – and these are free.
Phew. Let me catch my breath! It really does take your breath away when you consider the scale of what’s on offer.
The ticket count has been increased multiple times over the last few months and there is now a waiting list. Why? Because all NINE HUNDRED free tickets have gone. BUT, if you don’t have a ticket (why not?!?), do not hesitate to get yourself on the waiting list. There is the possibility that some may (no guarantees!) get released over the coming weeks.
ANYWAY, why am I so excited about this event? Well, apart from the fact that I will be getting the chance to hear some of the biggest names in the community and finally meet people in real life, I am also speaking!
Yes, I know the blog posts have dried up a bit in recent months (many reasons, lots of excuses), but I will be taking the wonderful Arthur and his tales of a CRM Migration to the University of Strathclyde. Join us for a whistlestop tour of the highs and lows, the pitfalls and the pleasures, of moving to Dynamics 365.
Come along and catch me in Executive Room A at 1:30pm. I’ll be using Arthur’s story to cover some of the key phases in a migration project. There will be the practical, the technical, the theoretical, and the “fluffy people skills” stuff.
In the meantime make sure you check out the Scottish Summit website, the Twitter account, the #SS2020 hashtag. Oh, and don’t forget my Twitter account of course!
Finally, go and grab the Scottish Summit app over at your preferred app store (Google / Apple). You can set up your schedule, arrange to meet people, check out the prizes on offer (yes, PRIZES!), and see just how amazing this event is going to be.
I’ll see you in Scotland! (oh, and I’ll be bringing plenty of stickers!)
