I will be attending to the Dynamics AX 2012 R3 tech conference in Seattle with my team members from TriBridge. In addition, in this post I would like to share the courses I will be taking at the Tech Conference and give my readers a snapshot of what each course is going to cover.
Finally, my goal will be to write a blog entry for each of the courses in depth. So follow my blog for the next couple of weeks as I will be posting very interesting information from these amazing courses.
In a nutshell, the Microsoft Dynamics AX Technical Conference 2014 begins on Monday February 3rd in Seattle (Bellevue, Washington). As far as I know, this is yet the biggest event for the upcoming Dynamics AX 2012 R3 release, which will introduce many new features in both the technical and functional dimensions of the application.
Below is a list of the courses I will be taking and a brief description of each. I will link each of the titles below to a new blog post in the next few days, so be sure to check this page for updated information (Each title will be in blue when ready to be explored)
Day in the life of a Microsoft Dynamics AX Solution Architect
The main focus of this course will be to learn how the roles and responsibilities of a solution architect apply to the different phases of an implementation project. I will be enjoying this course.
Data import/export framework for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3
The focus of this course is to experience the new entity-based import/export framework, which will help us manage our import/export, integration, configuration, and data migration needs.
Automated deployment of AX 2012 R3 in Windows Azure using lifecycle services
I believe this course is critical to any solution and/or technical architect as well for any developers as it will allow us to learn about the new features that Microsoft has developed for lifecycle services that will automate the deployment of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 environments with Windows Azure.
Building Microsoft AX services integration with the Microsoft Windows Azure Service Bus
As the one above, this course will also be critical for architects and developer alike. This course will cover the new Windows Azure Service Bus Adapter for the Application Integration Framework, which will allow us to deploy Microsoft Dynamics AX Services through the Azure Service Bus, making Microsoft Dynamics AX Services accessible from the cloud.
Data synchronization to multiple instances of Microsoft Dynamics AX
This course will help us learn the Data Management (MDM) in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, and how it simplifies master data synchronization across multiple Microsoft Dynamics AX instances by utilizing conceptual business entities, metadata, and declarative configuration.
Optimizing the performance of Microsoft Dynamics AX deployment
I'm really looking forward to this course as it will cover some techniques that could help us gain higher performance in our Microsoft Dynamics AX deployment. A few key points that will be introduced will be design-patterns, parameter configuration and implementation pit-falls.
Create Microsoft Dynamics AX builds using the new X++ server-side parallel compiler
In this course we are going to go through an overview of the new X++ server side parallel compiler as well as best practices on how to apply the new compiler in creating Microsoft Dynamics AX builds in the context of multiple development environments integrated via TFS version control.
Technical Deep Dive - warehouse management
This is a course that will be critical for me and I'm sure for the majority of Microsoft Dynamics AX professionals out there, as it will dive into the technical challenges for the new warehouse management inventory reservation system. by exploring the new data models as well as the interaction between work and reservations.
Warehouse and transportation management hands on experience
This will be an hands-on experience course to preview the functionality available in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 for warehouse management and transportation management.
Tracking dimension at work! See the new item tracing, batch attributes-based pricing and batch merge within Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3
This course will dive in to understanding how the potency of products is taken into account when calculating consumption for batch orders, leveraging potency pricing to improve the sales process and utilize the new batch merge capability to achieve a potency level requirement from a customer during sales.
This is all for now. Follow me on this adventure in both my blog and twitter.
