Together We Win - Success Through Open Source

Date: Thursday, October 28, 2021 | From: 11:00:00 to 11:45:00 | Room: AMBER3+4 | Session Owner: Microsoft

In this session we will take a closer look at why you should embrace open-source for the Business Central application platform. What’s in it for you, as a partner? What would be candidates for contribution? We’re going to take a look at the future of application development from 3 different angles, exemplified by the partner driven development of the Azure Blob Services API module. Contributing is easier than you might think! Together, we win.
