    NAV TechDays is the name of a conference, organized by mibuso.com. The goal of this conference is to offer 2 days full of – technical only and highly relevant – sessions, related to Microsoft Dynamics™ NAV.

    NAV TechDays is the place where some of the best developers and leading business owners cross paths, exchange ideas, find partners and conceive projects. It is where community ties are strengthened and where boundaries will be broken. It is where you want to be to make things happen. If you are passionate about Microsoft Dynamics NAV, then you need to be at NAV TechDays!

    "We always enjoy presenting on NAV TechDays and the feedback is vital to us."

    Is it 2 x4 hours each in sequence or 2 x 8 hours in parallel?

  • Luc_VanDyckLuc_VanDyck AartselaarPosts: 3,632Member, Moderator, Administrator
    It's 2 classes of 8 hours each, in parallel.

    On the registration form, you can indicate if you want to attend a class. This will probably be invoiced separately. The 2013 conference website is now under construction.

    Is there any chance if there is enough demand that it could be done over two separate days so we can attend both? Or am I the only one that wants both?

    We have scheduled the final pre-conference - 8 hours training - class on 6 November:

    Development Best Practices for creating Partner Ready Software
    We all know how to create solutions. But are we actually capable of creating solutions that are maintainable, reusable, upgradable, extendable, repeatable, .. ? In other words .. are we able to create software instead of solutions?
    For about 2 years, the people behind "partner-ready-software" have been working on Best Practices regarding development of product-software. In this course, Eric Wauters, Mark Brummel & Gary Winter will learn you their findings, their answers to questions like:
    · How do I make my solution reusable?
    · How do I make my product repeatable, with still having the flexibility of changing business logic
    · How do I make repeatable software, and still be able to extend it the way I want
    · How do I make my code readable
    · How do I make all my developers work in the same way
    · How do I make sure that all my developers work the same way, can read each others code, ...

    With real life examples, we'll show you how to create software that supports the road that we're facing, that Microsoft is paving for us .. .

    First two conference session abstracts are now on-line:

    Microsoft .NET Interoperability for Beginners
    Microsoft .NET Framework is the most flexible and powerful development frameworks available, there is good and bad news about it. The good news is that it integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 and newer. The bad news is that it still remains underused, as most of developers don’t really understand how to make the best use of it. And it’s certainly not their fault – NAV has allowed them to only use C/AL for quite a long time. And habits are hard to break.

    This session will give you the basic guidance about how to start getting the most out of the .NET interoperability, even if you are a total beginner. The session will cover the very basics of the .NET interoperability, and how to take advantage of the most important classes and features, including:
    • Using arrays, lists, and collections in general
    • Using dictionaries for fast lookups
    • Using StringBuilder for lightning fast string manipulation
    • Understanding the System.Object class and its versatility
    • And more

    Level: 300 - Advanced

    Speaker: Vjekoslav Babić


    Microsoft .NET Interoperability Black Belt – Tips & Tricks
    Every new release almost always brought some improvements in C/AL which made programming simpler, and NAV more powerful. However, the best addition to the programming layer of NAV is without doubt the introduction of the .NET Interoperability which allows NAV developers to tap into the richest framework of ready-to-use features available. Basic features of this interoperability are well documented, but there are always those things that cannot be done, until somebody comes along, who doesn't know they can't be done, and does them.

    This session will take a deep dive into .NET Interoperability and will present a series of not-so-well-known features and capabilities, and will give some tips & tricks with examples such as:
    • Strongly typed generics
    • Synchronizing asynchronous calls to NAV
    • Interchanging C/AL and .NET streams
    • Exchanging strongly typed data accross different clients
    • And many more

    Creating and Upgrading Reports in NAV 2013
    Join this session to listen to MVP Claus Lundstrøm giving tips and tricks for creating and upgrading reports. Claus will look at how the dataset is created and flattened, a key to understand how to create RDLC reports.
    He will look at how to create groups, how to filter on both groups and rows and provide tips on how to debug these filters, which can be time consuming with a lot of trials and errors.

    Learn how to create the RDLC report layout based on template reports so report layouts are created in matter of minutes.

    We will start with simple list reports and end up upgrading a 5.0 Classic document report to NAV 2013. This session will be fast paced and filled with tips and tricks, and in the end there is time for Q & A.

    Level: 300 - Advanced

    Speaker: Claus Lundstrøm


    NAV ALM with VS Team Foundation Server (TFS)
    A perfect - no, even better - alternative to the various home brewed source control and product planning systems is Visual Studio Team Foundation Server (TFS).

    TFS is a powerful ALM (Application lifecycle management) tool that can support your NAV development projects. Secure your code with history using TFS source control or easily propagate your product to your customer projects. Track bugs and plan your work using TFS work items. Design and manage your test using TFS test manager and even build your fobs using the TFS build system.
    But how to do this with the NAV development environment that is not integrated with Visual Studio?
    MVP Luc van Vugt will give you a resume of what he has been doing for years now: integrating TFS and NAV. Next to TFs itself a number of interfacing tools will be discussed and demonstrated.

    Level: 200 - Intermediate

    New conference session abstract published on-line:

    NAV's Secret Code: Design Patterns of Today and Tomorrow
    NAV consists of thousands of lines of code which sometimes seem to have been written just to solve a specific task, governed by the ideas of the respective developer. But nothing can be further from the truth. The PRS team invites you to join us in taking a step back, and another one, to look at how the design patterns governing the NAV application unfold.

    The whole application is built up from a myriad of implicit patterns and sub-patterns most of which are quite familiar to the experienced developer. What makes it hard to talk about them and base trainings on them, is that they have no name and are not reflected in the code in an explicit way.

    In this session, we will share our views and analysis of the most important design patterns of today as well as of patterns which we would very much like to see in an evolving, repeatable NAV application of tomorrow. We will also share a tool for creating code which follows recommended design patterns and analyzes code based on a data dictionary.

    Level: 300 - Advanced

    New conference session abstracts published on-line:

    Add-in development in NAV with or without graphical element: Visual studio + NAV development
    By launching Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Role Tailored Client Microsoft also has introduced deeper integration Visual Studio development languages like C# to present various graphical elements. One of them can be seen in standard Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 where sales analysis is presented in graphs with various filtering capabilities. And it is not limited to graphs only as you can create pdf viewer, internet browser, movie player or any other graphical element and integrate into Microsoft Dynamics NAV Page.

    In this session we will go through the process of simple graphical element creation and integration into Microsoft Dynamics NAV. As well we will deliver more challenging example to present that there are no limits for creativeness.

    During the session we will also share some tips & tricks to help you in add-in development and debugging processes.

    Upgrade from Classic Client to RTC Tips & Tricks overview: Forms, Reports, Integration, batch job function changes
    Role Tailored Client gives a lot of benefits to users: like usage of role centers gives quick overview what is happening with customer business or flexible user interface enables each user to customize page view in a way it best supports their daily work. The good news is that Microsoft will bring Role Tailored Client to the Cloud which enables real scalability modeling and fewer headaches for small and medium companies.

    Unfortunately the new client brings new challenges which make juniors and experienced developers equals. During this session we will share our experience on Role Tailored Client while transforming Forms to Pages, managing integrations through web services and running batch jobs in the background. We expect to have new Microsoft Dynamics NAV version available, in that case we will be able to share how to manage your development for Cloud. As well the examples on how to overcome one or another issue will be presented. We will also spend some time to answer your questions.

    New conference session abstract published on-line:

    NAV application design
    Generations and generations of C/AL developers have struggled creating new functionality from scratch, often finding that they’ve spent many summer nights reinventing the wheel. We are hoping to put an end to these times by creating a set of reusable coding and design patterns, that will become the “norm” of how things could be done in NAV. How to deal with temporary data sets when using them as a report backbone, or how to display data processing errors all at once, instead of one by one during journal line validation or other processing - those are examples of issues that surface again and again when developing new NAV solutions.

    In the second part of the presentation, we will present the new design paradigms introduced in the NAV mini-app for enhancing usability. We will present how to develop trimmed down versions of your core application objects, for a subset of users. The session will show the solution we chose for downsizing our base pages and overloading their functionality (in a simplified manner) for users that do not need all the features contained in the main objects.

    The NAV Design Patterns initiative we are presenting aims at providing the community with scalable, reusable pieces of code, that will show any C/AL developer, either experienced or junior, how things can be done, saving time and energy. Join us!
