During the session, Tharanga Chandrasekara, lead technical consultant at Theta(NZ) and Business Central MVP for the past six years, together with Stephen Gichure, Founder & Technical Lead at Thamani Tech NZ, will take you through some of the common mistakes made by developers while developing integrations between Business Central and other third party applications.

Tharanga and Stephen will talk about their experiences and share some of the best practices they follow, which can be used to improve your solutions. They will use real-life examples and demos to showcase the pros and cons of most of the patterns most developers use and explain what can be done to move away from them.
