This doesn’t stop our very brilliant presenters to do something different and talk about completely unrelated software and tools which can make our work easier and make integrations sound fancier. The presentations and the group is led by very friendly and helpful people who are more than willing to help and share knowledge.

We are here to create awareness of dynamics products and both teach and learn from each other.
