Dynamics Business Central / NAV Development Developer Digest - Vol. 419
ArcherPoint’s Developer Digest focuses on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV development. Developer Digest vol. 419 follows a recent Twitter thread on migrating from DevOps to AL-GO for GitHub, StringConversion Management Codeunit, personalization, and dataflows in PowerBI.
The Dynamics NAV and Business Central community, including the ArcherPoint technical staff, comprises developers, project managers, and consultants who are constantly communicating with the common goal of sharing helpful information 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, and social media…for everyone’s 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 the wealth of information with everyone who might not have the time to check out the multitude of resources out there?
Thus, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV/BC Developer Digest was born. We present a collection of thoughts and findings from Dynamics NAV/BC experts and devotees worldwide each week. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.
