All around NAV dev and test
Returned from summer vacation, picking up daily work and, as you might say, ... getting ready for the touring season. The NAV on TFS tour. Or somewhat longer: NAV ALM with Team Foundation Server - On Tour. By now the tour is already on the run. It started two weeks ago at Directions 2014 in San Diego, USA, being in great company of which not the least were almost three hands full of my fellow NAV MVPs.
And surely, when doing the presentation on Source Code Management, together with my brother in arms Soren Klemmensen, as part of the MVP Best Practices Track.
Next stop will be at Directions EMEA 2014, in Poznan, Poland, where we will have a kind of replay of best practices track, now called MVP Sessions. This time I will have to conduct the SCM session on my own and hope to see you there.
... will you miss either of the sessions at directions: there will be 3 chances more before the end of the year. These might even suite you better, as these will be deep dive workshops on the various aspects of the use of Team Foundation Server in NAV development.
So ... see you there?
It has been very silent and all of a sudden the bear is loose again. I mean Sigfredo Beerman is writing again. You might recall my amazement some years ago. As a matter of fact three years, on my birthday (check it out). In those days, finally somebody (or at least one of the few) started blogging on functional matters. I know I am a bit to blunt but there weren't many doing that and surely not at MS. Things have changed and there more people around, however , IMHO still to little.
In the mean time, for almost a year there haven't been any SCM post on the NAV Team Blog. And now with a few weeks we get 5 nice post! Yowza, yowza, yowza. Let the bear loose.
Now, on the Northern hemisphere, the meteorological summer is left behind, autumn will soon be falling on us. And with it these wonderfully colored leaves. However summer seems somehow lingering on and the only things that whirl upon me are various blogs. New or somewhat older. Today this came down with some useful information on NAV 2015 that I have immediately added to the NAV 2015 Blog Landing Page. The site looks nice and fresh (for weeks I have been wondering how to find time to get mine redone) and content wise looks very promising even though - being honest - I find some of the info is redundant as these have been addressed by others already. But 'Crow' don't let this stop you. No, don't. And be welcome to the Dynamics blog-o-sphere!
And just to set some expectations: in many cultures crow is considered to be the carrier of wisdom. (And now deliberately leave other connotations out )
O, also read Crowfield's posts on Power BI.
Might be surprising to you, but if I read a blog post title saying Source control…is it really worth it?, you got me hooked! I guess I found, or actually it was Soren who did it for me, a non (ex) MSFT that seems to love Team Foundation Server (TFS). Hooray. Thawtz, join the club. Don't know if you have been following Soren and me, but be welcome. And let your posts flow in to the Dynamics blog-o-sphere. For sure this post makes me looking for the next.
I guess that by now you have noticed that NAV 2015 GA has officially been announced and that the download has been made available to partners (including links to useful material like readiness library). Next to that various post from people like the NAV MVPs are popping up around us like mushrooms. Having been in the heart of this at the start of last week during Directions 2014 in San Diego, CA, when traveling home, I somewhat lost oversight over what we were all producing. Time to get me a kind of landing page collecting all the non-MS What's New communications. So here we go.
I'll do my best to keep this pages up-to-date. Feel free to add references to posts not (yet) mentioned in the comments section below. And also on any improvement of the layout.
