On October 12, 2020 the junior developers joined again with their track trainer Luc van Vugt, for their 3rd week of the Opgona Junior Training. This time at the Kruishoeve in Vught, NL, beautifully situated in the woods around the IJzeren Man.
The theme of the 3rd week is Solution Development. In this week the students learned more on what it means to be a Business Central application developer. Applying technical skills in an ERP environment, practicing both technical and functional design patterns, learning best practices, using Azure DevOps, and the like.
Armed with knowledge and practical experiences gained in the previous, 2nd training week the students had to first work their way through a step-by-step case, called Seminar Registration. Thus building a “standard” application in Business Central going from configuration tables and pages, through operational transaction to historical transaction tables and pages.
All newly introduced concepts and techniques were challenged by means of a daily quiz triggering a lot of sidetrack topics.
Having concluded the Seminar Registration case on Thursday, Friday posed a new challenge to the students: the Support Registration case. With this assignment they could show how well they had picked up new things learned this week and were able to apply them in a new situation. Being a very ambitious project the assignment will continue in the weeks following our week 3, and has to be delivered before a mutually agreed upon deadline in Azure DevOps.
It was a joy to see how well the students have been working this week with great involvement on all subjects.
Based upon the Seminar Registration case the technical track will tackle Reporting, Data Exchange, Data Upgrade and Automated Testing in their 4th week, starting on November 9, 2020.
Looking forward to our last course week.
