Hosted sessions

Evolution of a titan: a look at the development of NAV from an MVP angle
LEVEL: 300 - Advanced
Room 5

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.

Rock ‘n Roll with VSCode
LEVEL: 300 - Advanced
Conference Hotel

Last year, waldo did a session about VSCode – the new development environment we as NAV developers should get used to. He was asked quite some times to put that into a workshop.

Well, here you go:

This workshop will focus on VSCode as a development tool, like:

  • Its configurability
  • Its extensibility
  • Coding hacks
  • Shortcuts
  • Snippets
  • SCM
  • ...

We will be installing and configure our VSCode the way we like for doing AL development. We will dive into VSCode Extensions which will help you during Al Development. And last but not least, we will create our own VSCode Extension.

Prerequisites:

  • I will prepare Azure VMs for you for during the workshop. All you need is your laptop with Wifi!

Workshop date: Tuesday 20 or Wednesday 21 November. This is a one day workshop.
