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

This blog is actually not valid anymore.  There is an official way to easily get to the al source code.  You can find more info here. 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 …

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 …

Where to find the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (and NAV) Docker Images (updated)

Admitted – this is not a lot of new content since my last post – but there are updates since the last one. Also, I wanted to put all repos in a nice clear list. Since my last post, I was contacted by Chris Blank that there actually was another “insider”-repo (for OnPrem images), and …

Where to find the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (and NAV) Docker Images

While I was writing my previous blogpost, I was wondering what the actual Docker repos are today. Basically: when we want to set up a certain Docker container, where can I find it? Well, easy. Just read this blogpost from Freddy, the Docker-God from Microsoft. But, while most info on it is still very valuable, …

List all Business Central Docker Image Tags on Microsoft Container Services

A while ago, I blogged about how you can get to all the tags on Docker Hub, for all images of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This was more useful than I ever imagined, as many people referred to it, or I had to refer to it for others. In any case, for us “simple” NAV “dinosaurs”, …

To Hybrid or Not To Hybrid

“Hybrid development” is not a general accepted term in our world of “Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central”. The term Microsoft uses for this concept is “Side-By-Side” development. But in a way, I find that “Hybrid” does more “right” to the term:: combining old technology with new technology (like C/SIDE and VSCode, or C/AL and AL, …

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central & NAV Event Publishers Repository

Since quite a while, I have been willing to blog this tiny little, but very useful thing that I have been using more that I would have thought before I created it. What is it? Well, nothing too fancy .. just a Github repo with more information about event publishers on a few of the …
