ArcherPoint Dynamics NAV Developer Digest - vol 177
The NAV community, including the ArcherPoint technical staff, is made up of developers, project managers, and consultants who are constantly communicating, with the common goal of sharing helpful information with one another to help customers be more successful. As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them on blogs, forums, social media...so everyone can benefit. We in Marketing watch these interactions and never cease to be amazed by the creativity, dedication, and brainpower we’re so fortunate to have in this community—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share this great information with everyone who might not have the time to check out the multitude of resources out there? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from NAV experts and devotees around the world. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.
Azure DevOps ProjectsKyle shares that the new Azure DevOps Projects experience allows you to create complete CI/CD DevOps pipelines, powered by Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) right from the Azure portal. In VSTS, you can take Release Management to the next level by creating automated release gates with Application Insights now in public preview. Finally, Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2018 is now available globally. Matt T. responds that DevOps is really interesting and there is a ton of information available now. That along with the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is what he expects our IP practice to grow into. A lot of it is about having a release cadence and being able to release a code base on demand, something that we don't normally think about with our traditional NAV development.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018 on Docker“If you want to do some evil-scientist experiments with NAV 2018 and Docker, Freddy Kristiansen's blog is a good place to start.” ~ Kyle H. Please note that Docker is not a requirement for NAV 2018. Docker is just a fast and handy way to get a demonstration setup of NAV working very quickly. You may also find that you have customers that will want to implement NAV inside of Docker containers for their test and production environments, since Docker containers can be executed locally or on a cloud provider. Freddy also has a comprehensive guide to the official Microsoft NAV Docker containers and the PowerShell tools they have put together for deployment, configuration, and management. These PowerShell scripts can also be adapted for use without Docker, so that you are scripting the configuration or deployment of NAV itself.Resource Center.
