Extensions is the new way of defining and deploying changes to your standard solution without the need to touch the code of it. Delivering a solution as Extension helps to reduce implementation and distribution efforts. Also, Extensions now is the only way to distribute your solution through Microsoft AppSource.
However, Extensions 2.0 comes with a whole new development paradigm and a new set of tools, technologies and methodologies. Adapting everything at once can become an overwhelming task for your team.
Let 1ClickFactory help your team jumpstart the journey to the new era of AL development.
During the 1ClickFactory-designed 2-day Extensions 2.0 development for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central workshop developers will get acquainted with the general concepts of creating Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Extensions in Visual Studio Code. This extensive workshop will cover:
Requirements for attendees: Participants must have at least 3 years of C/AL development experience to understand the concept of Events and to be familiar with Extensions 1.0.
Workshop outcome: Participants will leave the workshop with a fundamental understanding of the benefits and constraints of Extension development. They will become familiar with the tools used for Extension v2.0 development and will able to set them up for their new AL project. The training participants will work hands-on creating new and alter the existing Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central solutions and will also learn how to migrate their existing C/AL solutions to AL language.
It’s the future way of developing for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and your chance to differentiate in the market.
We invited a 1ClickFactory instructor to train us on extensions because we believe in a bright future with them. Thanks to events and extensions, the solution became more independent as they enable to upgrade the solution independently of the core code. We are very happy with the content and professional delivery.
Developing extensions is an important topic for us: we were eager and excited to dive deep and figure out Extensions 2.0 capabilities as well as limitations. And we are always seeking to be pioneers in the market: joining the workshop and learning from the ones who have experience already is one of the fastest ways to get on board.
I left the workshop with an understanding there are no limitations regarding the development of Extensions. Sure, you will really have to rethink your code-structure a bit which will be a challenge for the majority of senior programmers, who are used to change objects rather than extend them, but developing the Extensions is really a future.
Is it too early to dive deep into Extensions? Even though it is true there are still lots of limitations, having in mind the speed Microsoft is approaching the market, Extensions will be fully capable in no time. And when this happens, we want to make sure we are ready for them.
Extensions are not just the only way to get your IP on the Microsoft AppSource. Extensions are the future for many pain points we have today. The competition in Poland is the same as other markets, HUGE. That is why we consistently invest in gaining knowledge to prepare ourselves and stay ahead of the competition.
