In this session you will learn about the latest features in the AL language and the Visual Studio Code extension for Business Central. We will also present examples how to move functionality to the cloud and integrate with other Azure services.
With Business Central we are moving the entire application to the cloud. Coding for the cloud however offers its own set of opportunities and challenges. In some cases we wanted to change the application to uptake cloud benefit, in other cases to avoid the pitfalls. In this session, we will present some of the ‘unique stories’ (delight and horror) and describe how and why we changed the product. We will also describe some of the inner workings that can have a large impact on performance of our (and your) solutions. Expect to leave with expert insights and learnings.
Over the years we have customized thousands of customer databases using C/Side that now have to be converted to extensions using AL and Visual Studio Code.
During this session you will learn from real life scenarios how to avoid pitfalls and upgrade your customers in an efficient and cost effective way.
We will walk through examples and touch on challenges like:
It all starts with a change requirement. And another one, followed by yet another one. And please, make it quick… Eventually this results in a new version of your product running for many end users. How do you make sure you can deliver quickly and keeping up the quality of the product at the same time? That’s what Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery is about. We will discuss what CI/CD means and show real life implementations how to achieve this with Business Central.
Unusual showcases of how new cloud and just released on-premises Dynamics 365 Business Central takes benefits of interacting with Microsoft Azure platform.
Several practical examples will be live-demoed during the session:
NAV of today is not NAV of yesterday. Every new version brings new things, old things become obsolete, and new concepts arise at every corner. Looking back at NAV over the past ten or fifteen years, there are very few things that are the same.
The architecture changed. The front end changed. Now, even the language changed. No matter when and how you started your NAV career, the NAV you work with today is not the NAV you started working with.
In this session, two of prominent NAV MVPs, Eric “Waldo” Wauters, and Vjekoslav “Vjeko” Babić will look back at the past fifteen years of development of NAV, and will provide insights, thought, reflections, praises, recommendations, and general thoughts of what happened, why it happened, how it influenced the future, as well as a look forward into what might be coming ahead and where this NAV ship is going to take us over the next few versions.
Fasten your seatbelts for a rollercoaster of architecture, best practices, technical twists and insight.
