Another NAV TechDays is over, and again, needless to say, it was a splendid conference. Thanks to everybody who attended one of my sessions about .NET Interoperability: the pre-conference workshop for beginners, the session for beginners, and the advanced, or as I like to call it, the “Black Belt” session.

As I promised, I’m making all materials available for download here on my blog, and Luc will also make the recordings available from Mibuso.

Before I give you the materials, here’s the joke about programmers, and users, which I applied to programming in C/AL and .NET, and that a lot of folks asked me if I can share with them. By the way, I don’t know where it comes from, I’ve got it in an e-mail.

This is how users see programmers:

And this is how programmers see users:

As I said, the most of C/AL programmers, when having to work with .NET, feel like this:

With my sessions at TechDays, I wanted to show that .NET is simple, and to widen the horizons for everybody spending far too much time doing things in C/AL which could easily be achieved with a little help from .NET.

So, here are the materials.

Visual Studio Solution for All Sessions

I forgot to update the Visual Studio solution between the presentations, and essentially I used the same solution for the Black Belt session that I built on Wednesday for the Beginner workshop. Neverthless, the solution should be self explanatory, and if it is not – just drop me a note and I’ll help you.

Final Notes

By the way – I will also post when Luc publishes the recordings. They should be available for the beginners and the Black Belt sessions, but I don’t think that the preconference workshop will be published.

By the way – no, I did not forgot to annotate the code, as I promised. I’ll do that. But I did not want everybody to wait until I get time, so I have just uploaded everything in a raw format here, and then I’ll comment on the code later when I have time.

I also thought about posting a series of post, one topic per post, and then use that to explain what I was doing at all of the sessions. Maybe that makes most sense – and I’d probably not have to invest more time than annotating the source code.

What do you think?
