You might remember my post on “Code is Poetry”. Well, once again I’m in the plane after another most amazing days. I’m flying home from a 2-days meeting, purely dedicated on Design Patterns for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. If you are a developer, and don’t know what I’m talking about .. then let me take the …

Today, I came across the announcement that there is a new version of “the Connector” – in the NAV community better known as “They CRM Connector” – and officially called “Connector for Microsoft Dynamics”.

“Code is Poetry”

At the time when writing this post .. I’m in the plane after a most amazing day. You might not know, but since a few years, we (that are Mark Brummel, Gary Winter, Vjeko and me) have been working on-and-off on an initiative called “Partner Ready Software“. I have been blogging about that in the …

NAV2013 is officially on Azure!

On Azure that is! 🙂 I have been playing around with VM’s on Azure, and successfully deployed all of it (Database, NST, OData, Web Client, ..), but always had the feeling that it was just too simple and easy. Today, Microsoft announced (or at least it got only to my attention today :-)) the official …

Platform updates overview – NAV2013

Yesterday, the Platform updates for NAV2009 were updated. Today, it’s the turn of NAV2013.

When I was updating the list, these two interesting hotfixes came to my attention. I thought it was interesting to mention them here as well:

•Release of rollups for NAV 2013
•How to install a NAV2013 update rollup

Well, this is not a Platform update, but nevertheless, an interesting development, as Microsoft is making it easier for (some of) us by bundling a bunch of code-changes in one “rollup”.

Platform updates overview – NAV2009

As you might have seen, I have added a “platform updates” on my top menu. I will never update the non-released platform updates anymore – and the idea is that I “store” them there – still for your reference.. .

Availability of NAV2009 (Advanced) extended

This is an example of “double ethical ambiguity” (like we called it in school – a long time ago (in a galaxy..)). As NAV2013 is the best release ever (which I really mean in many ways) .. and can even sometimes called “the release that NAV2009 should have been” .. then why is Microsoft pleased …

NAV 2013: RTC crashes because of language NAS user

    I use the Jobqueue as much as I can for automating jobs. It’s decent, stable, good, flexible. It makes sense, doesn’t it? But after installing a language pack (NLB and FRB – quite common in Belgium :-/) .. it didn’t seem the most valid opinion I had.. : my RTC was crashing 10 …
