DevOps for AL – ALOps is ALive!

Yes! I did it! I finally managed to create the blogpost that I have been wanting to put online for quite some time. I have been putting off a lot of other posts – just to be able to make this one happen asap! You might remember the post about Directions US 2019 – that …

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Spring update changed “some” field lengths

For long, we (as a partner community) have been asking for longer field lengths. And this time, Microsoft seems to have delivered: about 860 field lengths were changed. Mostly from Text50 to Text100, but also from Text30 to Text50 and so on. For your convenience, I created a csv on my “CALAnalysis”-repo on github that …

Directions US 2019 – I appear to have work to do …

I’m returning back from yet another great Directions US event in Las Vegas this time. At this point – I’m sitting in the lounge in New York – a great opportunity to do a short post about something I didn’t really expect, and now I’m quite obligated to do.. . I total, I did about …

“In the future, on-premises will follow the cloud rules”

My intentional plan was to share a small blog about the Fall release of Business Central. Well – it turned out I had more to say than I imagined beforehand ;-). I would like to focus on one point, where I’m not going to make myself really popular, as I notice quite a lot that …

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central – 2019 Spring Release is released!

You might remember my blog from yesterday … . I didn’t know when it would be released. Well, it wasn’t available yesterday, but today, I got the comment on my blog from Daniel Göhler that it was available – so I refreshed my container again, and indeed! I used this Docker image: mcr.microsoft.com/businesscentral/onprem:be (I assume …

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central – 2019 Spring Release

I’m not attending Directions ASIA this year – and it doesn’t really feel good. There is a major release around the corner, and I have to experience it through social media – I hate it! But that’s life – my wife is going live with a huge project, so I had some duties at home …

CRS AL Language Extension – version 1.1.0

My last blog about my VSCode extension dates from July 2018. I have been upgrading/maintaining it meanwhile, and I am definitely not going to blog about all new small features and fixes (yes, quite necessary as well ;-)) every single time, but for this one, I really felt that an update wouldn’t hurt. What is …

Business Central as an app: getting to the al source code

You must have heard the latest news: Microosft released the first devpreview (on docker) where Business Central is an app, and there is close to no C/AL anymore. Either you might have gotten it from the blog from Microsoft, or Stefano’s blog, where he explained how to build an app for it. I wondered if …

Developing Business Central Extensions/Apps in Team – Follow Up

A while ago (in fact: in July last year), I posted a blog post about the challenges when “working in Team on apps“. Since then, I have been asked to work on a follow-up post on how we are tackling these challenges in our company today – and if all the assumptions I made also …

C/AL Source Code Analysis with PowerShell

Last Directions US and EMEA, I had the opportunity to talk about – uhm – myself. Well, not really – about my tools. It was a weird experience – but it got more attention than I ever expected. Now, during that session, I showed a tool that I wanted to put out there for sooooo …
