Dynamics NAV Application Architecture & Design Patterns

During the workshop, we will reveal all the secrets that are hidden in the Dynamics NAV Source Code. You will get answers to questions like…

  • How is Dynamics NAV Architected and how do the modules communicate
  • What are Design Patterns and Anti Patterns and how do they apply to Dynamics NAV
  • How can I avoid conflicts during my object merge
  • What impact do monthly rollups have to my roadmap and release strategy
  • Can the new Delta Files help me get more organized
  • Why does Dynamics NAV have so much Code Cloning
  • Are the coding standard documented and how can apply them
  • Can I implement Object Oriented concepts such as MVVM, overloading and reflection
  • How do I organize my object structure
  • Best Practices such as Encapsulation and Natural Language Programming
  • Be familiar with over 30 most used Design Patterns in Dynamics NAV
  • What does a perfect UI look like to be repeatable in the cloud
  • Understand the impact of Meta Data on Software Design
  • What is the difference between Reservation Entries, G/L Entries and Interaction Log Entries
