1 on 1 hands-on workshop

- By Eric (Waldo) Wauters.

"Personally I can’t picture a life without DevOps anymore, especially when you need to develop (in team) on a multitude of apps, that will be upgrade automatically in the SaaS environment, or that need to be tested against a multitude of localizations or versions of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. DevOps will help you in many ways: implement a workflow for your team, stabilize your code over time, automate testing for multiple versions or localizations, Automate deployment, .. ."


Target Audience

This workshop is suitable for everyone that feels the need to get started with DevOps and ALOps, but needs that last extra push or help to get actually started. It would help they have a basic knowledge of Source Code Management with Git.

What to expect?

In this workshop, I will spend a total of 8 hours (split over 2 (or more) days) with your internal DevOps responsible, and together, we will:

Set up a working DevOps Agent on one of your servers (preferably new). Be advised of our “ALOps Build Agent” offering (*). If you choose to use that service, we will have more time for setting up your pipelines, and diving into other things.
Set up a working DevOps CI (code merge) flow (*), including a code review and a build validation
Explain how this flow works for your developers
Set up a working CD (deployment) flow to a test environment
Explain the setup and the flow while we set it up

I will do this by using ALOps, a DevOps extension that is explicitly created for managing Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Development in Microsoft Azure DevOps.


The price for this workshop is €1500 excl. VAT.

After registration, we will contact you for an introduction call (Microsoft Teams) to talk about your environment, your business, and your current state regarding DevOps. We’ll schedule the workshop during that call as well.


You’ll need to have a working instance of VSCode, and it would be useful to have a working Business Central environment to work against.

You will also need to have access to a DevOps collection (https://dev.azure.com/) as an administrator. It would also be very useful if I would get access to that environment for the time of the course, to be able to set up the environment myself.

If you choose to use your own infrastructure for a DevOps agent (*), we’ll also be installing a DevOps agent. For this, you need access to a (clean, redundant) Windows server. There are a few options:

You don’t install an agent, and just follow me doing it during the course
a windows server that is running somewhere on your network, and you have (admin) access to it.
An AzureVM that is set up for you by your admins and you have admin access to it
You have admin access to Azure, and set it up yourself (I’ll tell you how during the course)
A local Windows Server Hyper-V on your system

(*) Here you can find more information about our “ALOps Build Agent”.

Are you excited about this workshop?

The goal is setting up a working environment on YOUR Azure DevOps environment.
