Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 came pre-packed with Extensions and thereafter, in December 2016, Microsoft announced Extension 2.0. Extensions, how to develop them and how to use Visual Studio Code will be a game changer for anyone who wants to participate in Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV business in the future. Microsoft not only pushes Extensions and Events driven development over old-school customizations, but also Extensions are now the only way to have your solution on Dynamics 365. Extensions will also dramatically reduce maintenance and distribution efforts for your solution.
