Van Vugt's dynamiXs

All around NAV dev and test

About Luc van Vugt

Just before the turn of the century I stepped into the NAV world training hundreds of developers of which most are still around.

After Microsoft acquired Navision I joined the Dynamics localization team as tester and UA specialist and was acting project lead for the first new releases. For 6 years I was closely involved with all successive releases to the (West) European market up till NAV 2009 SP1.

As of September 1st, 2009, I joined Imtech ICT Dynamics Solutions as Sr. Technical Consultant, where I was (1) leading product development as Product Manager, (2) coaching dev teams at other Dynamics partners, (3) co-leading the Imtech ICT Dynamics Competence Center (IIDSS), and (4) involved in Imtech ICT's international ERP development.

Simultaneously I became a more active community member and started blogging about Dynamics NAV on

With Mark Brummel and Arend-Jan Kauffmann I founded the Dutch Dynamics Community ( during fall 2010 ever since then successfully organizing local events regarding the Microsoft Dynamics products.

In 2012 I started, next to his job at Imtech ICT, his own company, called, doing various projects including conducting training on the use of NAV and Team Foundation Server.

After leaving Imtech ICT, I also joined the major Dutch schoolbooks reseller Van Dijk Educatie as Quality Assurance Lead and NAV Developer. Next to being involved in day-to-day development I introduced the use of scrum and Team Foundation Server now being their main tool for Source Code Management and Planning.

Since 2011 I has been rewarded 5 times in a row the Microsoft award “Most Valuable Professional” (MVP) for MS Dynamics NAV for this community work.

I am not a bits-and-bytes pro, I am not a C/AL wiz, but it always seems I do have a certain view on things that helps others to open eyes.
