    Are you thinking about your move to Business Central? Do you need to learn more about the new development tool: VSCode?

    Attend the upcoming 2 day onsite workshop scheduled for March 11-12, 2019 in Houston, TX, just prior to the start of the FOCUS 2019 NAVUG Conference.

    This Workshop: VSCode and Modern NAV Development will be taught by Gunnar Gestsson, Dynamics NAV MVP.

    The goal of the workshop is to learn about the new development tool for Business Central (Dynamics NAV), VSCode, GIT source control management and to experience what AL programming is all about:

    • What makes AL different from C/AL 
    • How do you build and deploy a new BC feature 
    • How can I convert my current code into AL 
    • How to get ready for publishing your IP to AppSource 
    • How to use GIT for you code
