A two-day in-depth training on how to develop Extensions in AL code with VS Code for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

The move to a completely new development experience is a big step for Dynamics NAV developers. Visual Studio Code as a development tool is expected to eventually replace our well-known C/SIDE environment. And that’s not just a click on the button. It means learning a new way of development, a new language (with old components, though) and a new way of deploying customizations.

In this workshop, you will learn how to develop an Extension in AL code with Visual Studio Code. Hands-on labs will get you in touch with the modern development environment of Business Central.

Join this workshop to get ready for the new era in Dynamics Business Central development!
