By Julie Deutz posted Jun 29, 2019 06:09 AM


We know users are coming to Orlando to learn and improve their D365 for F&O technical skills. We have built a great offering of sessions for Summit North America 2019 with just that in mind. Part of that offering is a unique hands-on developer opportunity with D365FO so you can learn how to customize and extend the software in a structured, procedural format with expert presenters.


Microsoft has worked hard to improve its Dynamics 365 trial experience. You can sign up to try most products free for 30 days; this will give you the ability to get a feel for the user interface and basic features. However, if you want to customize or try coding exercises – you will be better off attending the hands-on labs at Summit!

Hands-on Labs will be held Wednesday, October 16 and Thursday, October 17 from 9am to 4pm. Participants are required to bring their own computers but will be provided Azure-based D365 F&O instances to connect to in order to complete all labs. The 25 available spaces are first-come, first-served (no pre-registration required). Many, many thanks to RSM for sponsoring these labs, and for providing the expert proctors to assist attendees.
