New Business Central Books

New Business Central Books

Announcements: new books are coming!

  • two are already available
  • one is already on Pre-Order

I point out all three of them:

#1 – The first: “Programming Microsoft Dynamics Business Central – Sixth Edition”

I recommend it given the skill of the authors and the complete rewriting of the famous “Programming NAV book” from a complete Dynamics 365 Business Central and Microsoft AL perspective. I am also a reviewer of this book; thanks to Packt for this opportunity.
