Learning Business Central Development from Scratch Video Series

By Steve Endow

If you are new to Dynamics 365 Business Central development, join me on a journey to learn how to develop Business Central Extensions using VS Code and the AL language.

I have been developing business software for many, many years, but I am completely new to Business Central, AL, and VS Code.  And I am also new to Docker and PowerShell.  

Basically, I'm having to learn everything from scratch.  

I'm writing blog posts and making videos to share the learning resources I'm using and share my learning journey.

Here is my blog post introducing my journey:

To get started, I'm using the "Programming in AL For Beginners" workbook by Krzysztof Bialowas (at, and @myNAVblog on Twitter).

The workbook is available for free on GitHub:

Episode 1:

Episode 2:

Episode 3:

Episode 4:

I live stream the videos just to get them done.  You're welcome to join the live stream session if you happen to be free, but if you miss the live stream, you can always watch the video on my YouTube channel, where you can pause, rewind, and fast forward through the tutorials.

I hope you find the blog posts and videos helpful as you learn Business Central AL development!
