Recently at NAV Directions I caught up with Mark Brummel, author of the book Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Application Design, to find out how he came to write this book and what the response has been to-date.
Mark is an all-round Dynamics NAV specialist and started out on the end user side. Then when he started working for a NAV reseller, he found that he liked development as well and started to focus his attention there. And so writing a book about application functionality was an opportunity for Mark to demonstrate that he’s got a lot more to offer than the development talent for which he is mostly known.
The book is a tutorial targeting NAV consultants and developers, as well as business application designers. It shows Dynamics NAV developers how to create applications of different kinds and includes sufficient examples throughout.
And from the reviews I’ve read, and from what Mark has heard, readers are giving the book amazing reviews. While it’s been nearly a year now since Mark wrapped up the book project, he shared that he still enjoys meeting people at events that have read the book and want to share their feedback with him. And although at the moment Mark has no plans for another book, he is contemplating updating the current book when NAV 7 comes out next year, but again, this has not been decided.
