Eric Wauters

Belgium


iFacto Business Solutions | Cloud Ready Software
Partner | Development Manager

Eric is one of the founding partners of iFacto Business Solutions. With his 12 years of technical expertise, he is an everyday inspiration to its development team. As development manager he continually acts upon iFacto’s technical readiness and guarantees that he and iFacto are always on top of the latest Microsoft Dynamics NAV developments.

Apart from that, Eric is also very active in Microsoft Dynamics NAV community-life where he tries to solve technical issues and thrives to share his knowledge with other Dynamics NAV enthousiasts. Surely, a lot amongst you will have read some of Eric’s posts on Mibuso.com, Dynamicsusers.net or his own blog waldo.be, which he invariably signs with “waldo”. Lately he co-founded the Belgian Dynamics Community, a platform for all Belgian Dynamics NAV users, consultants and partners, enabling knowledge sharing and networking. His proven track record entitled him to be awarded since 2007 as MVP (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional).

Hosted sessions

Bad habits of NAV Developers
Room 8

There’s an old saying, “habits are cobwebs first, cables last.” It’s true, habits are hard to break, especially the bad ones.

During this session, we’ll address you to some bad habits in NAV Development that all of us are or have been applying, just because of changing technology and dinosaur behavior. Let’s break these bad habits and learn about alternative - or let’s say: “better” - ways of doing things.

Best Practices in developing Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 Extensions
Room 8

In this session, we’ll talk about the do’s and don’ts regarding Extensions. Essentially, after the session where Microsoft talks about the things that are now possible in NAV2017 - in this session, we’ll focus on the part “how to do it”. Best practices if you will, where we will not only talk about possibilities, but also “impossibilities” and how to work around them.

PowerShell – Black Belt
Conference Hotel

Either if you are a Microsoft Dynamics NAV System Administrator or a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer (or both?), since a few years now, PowerShell has come into our life and is here to stay to make our life easier – or should I say “more automated”.

The previous few years I have been doing an introduction on PowerShell at the Pre Conference Day of NAV TechDays. Now, it’s time to take it to the next level and actually do some really productive stuff. And we can do a lot.

During this one day, we will dive into useful scripts out of the field. Even more, when registered, you will get an introduction mail that will give you the chance of giving proposals for scripts or automation challenges you would like to see solved.

We will also use the waldo’s PowerShell modules to be as productive as we can.

Note: This is a one-day workshop which will be repeated on Wednesday.

This workshop is SOLD OUT!

Prerequisites:

  • “ This is THE tech conference in the NAV universe! As in the years before there is a lot of interesting input. All and all it is well organized conference, which I really like to attend for four years in a row now. ”

  • “ As in the years before, the best place to get concentrated information about the upcoming technical road path and current development issues without any marketing mumbo-jumbo. That the group of the speakers is a blend with people from Microsoft and independent Partners alike is also an great asset to this event. ”

  • “ Again I really love this conference. I appreciate the high level of speakers and sessions. ”

  • “ Overall I thought it was very high quality, only one session I thought was a little too much of a stretch, but that's just my opinion, a very good event. Well worth the money. ”

  • “ The whole event is fantastic. I REALLY loved the pre-conference workshops, so I was very happy to hear that there will be two days next year. The food was great, the accommodation is great, SUPER seats and screen, having the sessions on video later is icing on the cake. ”

  • “ Absolute eye-opener. It helps to overcome fears of the unknown and stimulates the envy to try out new things. I am really very grateful to NAV TechDays and especially Luc Van Dyck to make this happen. ”

  • “ Great conference. The must attend conference for NAV developers. From a sponsor perspective this is the conference to sponsor if your target audience is technical decision makers. The NAV TechDays audience is full of CIOs, CTOs, IT Managers, developers, technical people from VARs. ”

  • “ The best of NAVTechDays is the unique opportunity to meet fellow technically-inclined professionals, and being able to deep-dive into all things new. ”

  • “ The pre-conference days were probably the highlight. The sessions that were run by experts in their areas were phenomenal. ”
