ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest volume 200: A Special Edition
A Brief History of ArcherPoint’s Developer DigestBack in 2014, ArcherPoint’s Developer Digest was born out of “necessity.” Our marketing team had determined that our cadence for posting blogs would be three per week. With our subject matter experts busy on client projects, our small marketing team, ended up picking up the slack and each person was tasked with writing one blog per week until our product people had the opportunity to contribute to our blogs. At the same time as this new edict was decided upon, our web developer, who was a key member of the marketing team, was becoming increasingly interested in the internal conversations on Yammer. He was impressed with the comradery, support, and helpful tips everyone was providing to each other. He quickly realized these internal conversations could potentially help all sorts of developers, not just those at ArcherPoint. He understood the Yammer conversations could not only provide interesting blog fodder on a regular basis, but would also support our core values. Especially “Building an enduring tribe distinguished by collaboration and always putting the good of the community, clients, and colleagues above self-interest and our third, Learning and always challenging ourselves to build a better business and helping our clients do the same.” Hence, the ArcherPoint Developer Digest began. Over the years, we have gotten feedback from the community on the helpfulness of our blogs. One of our favorite comments, ““I have it on my calendar every Friday morning to go to the ArcherPoint website read the Dev Digest blog.” This from a Microsoft MVP - you know who you are, and we appreciate you!
