Business Central AI Demos and Hands-ons

Those of you who know me, know that a big part of what I do is delivering talks at conferences. Talks, workshops, demos, that kind of stuff. More often than not, quite a lot of time goes into preparation of demos and labs, and also more often than not, the stuff that I prepare just remains in the digital piles of my Dropbox, and fades into oblivion.

For three events this year (two Red Carpet events, and one Directions event) I’ve had a chance to prepare some demos and hands-ons around AI and Business Central, covering both what comes out of the box, and custom integration with things that are not a part of the standard.

Today, my MVP friend Dmitry Katson asked me if I could share with him the hands-ons I prepared. And so I thought – why not just share it with everyone? So, here it goes:

I’ve put all of the stuff I prepared in this GitHub repo, so if you want to play around with this a little bit, you’re welcome.

Probably the most important stuff there is the hands-on exercises (you’ll have them both in PDF and Word format) with (if my memory serves me well) more than 100 of pages of hands-on stuff, that took me quite a while to prepare, test, and write up. Some of it is not up-to-date, because the Azure tools used to manage that stuff changes daily, but you should be able to complete most of those exercises without any issues.

There. Done. I hope you can find any use of this. If not, just yell at me here and tell me how useless I’ve become

See you soon at Directions and TechDays!

 

Business Central Sandbox is not the same as Preview

Just in case you have fallen victim of the confusion I see often in online communities, blogs, but also Microsoft official documentation: Dynamics 365 Business Central sandbox is not the same as Dynamics 365 Business Central preview. They are two different things. Keep in mind, in this blog post I am not talking about sandbox container environments (on-prem); I am only talking about online sandbox environments.

This is not pure semantics. Things in sandbox environments (and I mean, real sandbox environments of Business Central) differ from things in preview environments.
