Acumatica Cloud xRP Summit 2020

This is our 4th annual Virtual Developer Conference and we are as excited as ever to host this DevCon and are looking forward to your participation.  We were very pleased with the turnout and positive feedback we received last year and expect a significant bump in attendance this year as well.

As usual, we’ll record each of the sessions – so register even if you can’t make it so you get a notice when the recordings are posted.

As is the case for all of our developer-focused events, we will be offering the fundamentals of the platform as well as advanced sessions, always trying to push ourselves to offer the most up-to-date and useful developer content possible. We will have a nice mix of speakers sharing their knowledge and expertise with our community of developers – Acumatica developer engineers and other subject matter experts as well as a few of our Acumatica Developer MVPs.  This year well will have a “panelist” discussion with the team who developed Acumatica Surveys to help respond to our customer who wanted to survey the health of their employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.  This was our first community open-source project that included developers from around the world.

For more detail on each session we offered, please expand the sessions listed below.
