Acumatica Summit 2020 and the annual Hackathon that kicks off the event is in the books. Now that I’m home from another great Summit and Hackathon, I’ve decided to start a blog to collect snippets of things that help me as a developer.
I’m told that it takes about 5 years to become an expert at developing for Acumatica, and at the time of this writing I’m only about 19 months in on the endeavor. Still, I’ve learned a lot already, and I hope that someday the things I post here will help others. As you read my posts, keep in mind that I’m sharing what I have learned, which isn’t always “right” on the first try. Just like many of you, I’m starting this journey with a background in a completely different language, database, and ERP, so much of this is still pretty new to me. I hope that over time my posts will be better, but at the same time the earliest ones should be the most basic and useful for a new developer. My time is limited, but I will attempt to post a lot quickly and then add a post here and there as I overcome new challenges.
One of the best parts of becoming a new Acumatica developer is that the tools and training material are FREE for developer use. You’ll need a Windows 10 PC with at least a 4th gen Intel Core i5 processor and 8 GB of RAM to get the same experience I have from my PC, although an older processor will work as well. In other words, pretty much any modern Windows 10 PC that a programmer would use from the last 5 years is sufficient.
Check back for my next post, and I’ll share more details about how to get started.
