    • Objects Programming to be Extension Ready

      With the release of Business Central, Extensions are all the craze! Every conference development topic as of late has been on how to develop using AL code. But what if you are on a later version of NAV that does not have extension capabilities? Well never fear! This session will show you a way you can develop on your older software and be "Extension-Ready"!

      We will walk you through the concept of an extension, so your programming changes today can be quickly transformed into an Extension in the future. After this session you will be confident enough to be able to take your customizations from base NAV and have them working correctly in extension-ready events. There is plenty you can do today so when your company decides to move to BC your customizations will be ready too!

      This session is geared towards developers who are using NAV 1.x to NAV 2018.
