  • Mark Brummel: Episode 2 – BC-Fall Release Wave II | Checking Your Extension

    Before we dive into the list of (breaking) changes that I’ve discovered so far, I will first explain how to check your extension against the preview of the fall release. This is mostly interesting for those who are on AppSource or partners who have refactored their IP into On Prem extensions. I’m going to assume all of them have access to the Ready to Go program.

For years, we as a community have…

  • Freddy's Blog: Zombie containers -> Skip This Build?

    Over the last few days I have experienced a strange behavior with the latest version of Docker Desktop Community edition ( (36874) released July 31, 2019) on my Windows 10 1903 machine.

For all of you with that opinion about me – let me make you happy. You might have figured from my previous post that there is one topic that doesn’t make me particularly happy: “ Code Customizing the AL BaseApp…

  • Freddy's Blog: PowerShell for non-experts…

    With the release of NAV and Business Central images on Docker, a lot of people who are not familiar with PowerShell will be using PowerShell. They will be handed a script to run and they will run it. Then something doesn’t work as expected – and somebody (might be me) will tell them to add a parameter called xyz.

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Preview of Dynamics 365 Business Central 2019 release wave 2: few notes

    As you already knows, in October Microsoft will launch what is called “ Dynamics 365 Business Central Release Wave 2 ” (platform 15) and some days ago the first public preview was available. The main “revolution” of this new release is that all is AL only. You will never find CSIDE and C/AL support from now and also no more Windows Client. Freddy Kristiansen as always has explained all in a great way in these two…
