As we could see during WPC, NAV2017 is around the corner. But that doesn’t mean Microsoft is not working on readiness material for NAV2016. Especially for the things that have been brand new, and need some attention. You know: Extensions. 🙂
A few months ago, I had the opportunity to work together with Microsoft on some new NAV2016 videos on Extensions. And since this month (July 5th) they were published on all media (MSDN, but also YouTube). These videos were created by Vjeko (voice) and myself (content). Hope you like them :-).

There is one more on the agenda: debugging. A small video with tips how to debug Extensions. I’ll ping you when it’s finished!
Waldo, do you know where we can get the PS scripts used in the videos?
It’s strange, but Microsoft still hasn’t published the scripts. Did did ask us to create videos, based on the scripts though :-/
Nevertheless, on my github, you can find basically the same, but much more extensive 😉
Can you advise when you will be releasing tips how to debug Extensions.
How can you determine objects loaded by an extension?
