Server Extensibility Demos

Yesterday, as a part of Microsoft’s Road To Repeatability program, I delivered a live meeting session about server extensibility in NAV in which I focused on certain areas of .NET Interoperability and Web Services that in my opinion align well with the R2R message.

As promised, here are the materials from the presentation:

I provide this as-is, with no comments, documentation or anything – you are free to use any of these materials in your projects, and I welcome your questions here about presentation content and demos. I’ll do my best to answer them on my earliest convenience.

I hope you enjoyed the presentation yesterday (if you were attending) and that you find these materials useful.

The “Life Hack” from today’s Session

And yes, I almost forgot… Somebody (sorry, I didn’t catch the name) asked me to put my life hack on the blog as well, so here it is. For all of you who were not there, I use this as a template for declaring .NET variables – until Microsoft provides means to declare them in a simpler ways. Inline, anyone?

So – download the life hack, or cheat sheet, here: http://vjeko.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Life_Hack_No_1.docx

DEmos from the .NET Interop for Mere Mortals

Thanks to everybody who attended my session today at NAV TechDays 2014 in Antwerp. As promised, here are the goodies from the session. I’ve simply taken the objects and I deliver them here with no explanations or comments – when Luc publishes the sessions and the slide decks on Mibuso, you’ll be able to figure out what’s what. I hope you don’t mind.

I’ve also included my demo from the PRS session today, about the Service Locator pattern. The ZIP file does not include the Visual Studio solution – you can find it in my previous post, that I’ve put here yesterday.

I hope you find these examples useful and that they help you get started with .NET Interop quickly.

NAV TechDays 2014 Pre-conference goodies

So, NAV TechDays 2014 have started, again, with the pre-conference sessions that were all sold out and packed full.

Today I had an extraordinary pleasure to teach the advanced .NET Interoperability concepts to 15 people that came from all over the world, from Brazil to Australia. It was an interesting workshop, challenging – I must say (thanks to Rafael who made me improvise a solution to a typical DotNet limitation), and I am looking forward to delivering two more sessions about .NET and Control Add-ins tomorrow, and on Friday.

As promised, I am making the materials from the presentation available for the download, in case you want to learn the same stuff the attendees learned today.

NavUserAccountHelper class

Even though my blog queue has a lot of far more interesting todo entries waiting for their prime time, on my short flight to the Directions EMEA conference in Poznań, instead of dozing away or blank-staring through the window, I’ve decided to introduce the Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.NavUserAccount.NavUserAccountHelper class, a part of the built-in .NET stack of Microsoft Dynamics NAV since the version 2013 R2. My friend, Eric, asked me to blog about it, so here it is, this post is for you, Eric.
