    Workshop #5: Let it build! (TFS Build for Dynamics NAV) (Kamil Sacek)
    We will learn how to setup TFS Build components, how to customize build templates and what is needed to be able to let TFS build and test NAV database for you. We will look at possibility to use TF source control and/or GIT to maintain your object versions. Of course, we will use PowerShell to do the real work for us, but we will use already prepared scripts in most cases.
    Be able to automatically create NAV database, import objects, compile them, export them into FOB file, run tests and do other things is pre-requisite for making reliable products with lower cost. Let TFS build NAV for you and you can start to use Continuous integration for NAV development, together with developer’s isolation in short time.

    Workshop #7: Learn how to implement The RoleTailored client with success (Peik Bech-Andersen)
    Learn how to implement The RoleTailored client with success. The whole idea behind the RoleTailored client and the profiles is that functionality and information should be available as close to the main Role Center page as possible. This means that all the information the user needs to perform daily routines is available on the startup screen. Not only that, pending and overdue tasks should be highlighted on the same startup screen. Getting the information is not enough; all functionality needed to handle the tasks must be available as well.
    Today a large amount of the functionality are hidden in the different Role Centers. You will learn to reuse these functionalities and also be given extra goodies that will save you valuable time and money in future implementations of the RoleTailored client.


    Workshop #8: Installing and configuring SQL Server for Microsoft Dynamics NAV (Alain Krikilion)
    Best practices to install and configure SQL Server for use on your portable, production and your partner environment with lots of databases.
    We will start with the configurations to install SQL Server (this can be quite long, so we won’t be installing SQL Server during the workshop).
    We’ll see the best configuration for your different environments.
    We’ll create and delete users in SQL, we’ll create maintenance plans for your database and also how to create more efficient ones using SQL Server Agent.
    We’ll see more in detail the different backup methods and how to restore them.
    We’ll also see how PBM (Policy Based Management) can help you keeping your partner server under control.

    Workshop #9: Developing control add-ins for Microsoft Dynamics NAV (Vjekoslav Babic)
    User interface is one of the most important parts of every product. Regardless of the business processes that the solution can support, it’s the user interface that makes users love or hate an application. Developing user interface for Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a simple process, but is constrained to a handful of controls that are good when the primary interaction with the application is entering data as text. However, when interaction is more complex, and when user interface needs to provide more functionality than mere data display or entry, or when built-in NAV controls are not enough, we can develop custom control add-ins.
    This workshop will cover the control add-in development process, end-to-end, and will explain all the steps necessary to create, deploy, use, and maintain control add-ins that work across all Microsoft Dynamics NAV clients: Windows, web, and tablet.

    Workshop #12: Generic, Repeatable & Low footprint coding techniques (Soren Klemmensen)
    During this workshop I will introduce you to a different way of thinking around coding. We have all heard about the repeatable business model or “Road to Repeatability” at just about every conference in the last years. However what does this mean from a coding perspective?
    How do we make code that can survive in a repeatable world?

    1st conference session is published: Tips, Tricks & Tools for NAV/SQL Troubleshooters (Jörg Stryk)

    In terms of troubleshooting NAV with SQL Server there are always three major areas to be investigated: Platform, Query Strategy and Blocking. In previous NAV Tech Days sessions each area has been explored in detail. This session will roll-up the most essential aspects like Server Sizing & Configuration, Indexing or Locking Mechanisms; then give some guidance about how to approach performance issues and show which utilities are feasible for analysis and monitoring (i.e. Perfmon, PAL, SQL Profiler, TSQL, SQL Trace, SmartQuery, etc.).

    2nd conference session is published: Load Testing Microsoft Dynamics NAV (Arend-Jan Kauffmann)

    One of the frequent questions when talking about system requirements of Microsoft Dynamics NAV is “How many users can fit on one NAV server?”. And there or a lot of variants to this question, like “How many tenants fit on one NAV server?” or “What are the hardware requirements for x number of users?”. The correct answer was always: it totally depends on the application, what the users are doing and of course the size of the server. Until now…

    After this session you can answer these questions yourself. It will be demonstrated how to use Visual Studio to design and perform your own load tests for your solution. Using this, you will be able to predict the performance of your application in well-defined circumstances.

    3rd conference session is published: Client Add-ins Black Belt: bringing .NET and JavaScript together (Vjekoslav Babić)

    In all those situations when the UI capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics NAV don’t provide all the functionality you need, there is the extensibility framework that allows you to write custom client add-ins and extend the user interface in ways limited only by your imagination. However, C/AL ceases being your best friend, and you need to venture into the realm of .NET or JavaScript. Even though the documentation and online examples make you believe that client add-ins are either .NET or JavaScript, the true power of the client extensibility framework can only be reached when you combine the benefits of both worlds: server-side power of .NET with client-side flexibility of JavaScript.

    This session will take a deep dive into the world of client extensibility, and will blur the boundaries between .NET and JavaScript, while discussing concepts such as data serialization, call synchronization, cross-object referencing, and many more. The presentation will be filled with many illustrative demos, and will explain how combining simple concepts can result in stunning visual user interfaces far beyond the built-in limitations of the standard UI functionality of Microsoft Dynamics NAV clients.

    5th conference session is published: Team Foundation Build and NAV Development (Soren Klemmensen, Kamil Sacek, Luc van Vugt)

    Using Team Foundation Server (or GIT) as your central code repository and planning engine is a great asset in your development organization. It gives you oversight on what has happened in the past and what is being worked on now. And at the same time it helps you to share the code over and control it’s quality across multiple projects.

    With Team Foundation Build we bring this all to a next level allowing us to create the deliverables of our project or product development highly repeatable and in a fully automated mode. At the end of a sprint, overnight, or even with every check-in.

    In this session Dynamics NAV MVP Soren Klemmensen, Kamil Sacek and Luc van Vugt will show you how easy this can be achieved and even integrated with NAV’s automated test features.

    For those moving to the cloud a definite must to join.

    6th conference session is published: Thinking out-of-the-box with NAV development (Eric Wauters)

    During this session, we’ll go into quite some examples where people have been using NAV in a totally – let’s say – surprising way. Together, we will try to find the “borders” with NAV, if there are any .. . To give a few examples:

    • How can we “hack” with NAV – or at least “challenge” the security of your system
    • Let’s look at some very cool design patterns, like “writing C# within the C/AL designer”
    • We’ll look into PowerShell – and take it to the next level, by enhancing default NAV commandlets
    • We might look into auto-deploying Cumulative Updates – in the most broad way you could think of
    • NAVApps and Eventing – of course! But not how it works – more like – how to work with it!
    • Deploy NAV with … NAV
    • …

    Let’s challenge NAV as much as we can …
