During the Spring 2020 conference, I saw a session “Business Central Life Hacks” by Shawn Dorward (which has a blog “https://lifehacks365.com/ ” – how fitting is that ;-)) – which focused on functional life hacks. This inspired me of doing a developers-version of it. So I asked him if I could “steal” his title, and go for “Business Central Development Life Hacks“. I submitted the session title, and I was lucky enough to have it voted high enough to be selected as a session.
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.
Git hooks have been on my “to mess about with and learn a little some day” list for a while. It’s the old conundrum: I might use them if I knew what they could do, but I’m not going to learn about them until I’ve got a use for them. Chickens-and-eggs for developers.
Remember my blog post on “Multi-root workspaces in VSCode for AL Development“? If not – it might be interesting to read first, because this is in fact an “extension” (get it?) on it .. so you might say this blogpost “depends” on that one ;-).
I concluded the post with some scripts – and that’s the part I’d like to extend a bit – because I needed more functionality since latest blogpost. And I’d like to refer to these scripts again – and tell you a bit more on how they could make your life a bit easier as well .. .

I wasn’t really intending to write this post. If you want training materials for learning the basic concepts of Git then there is tonnes of great free content around on blogs and YouTube channels. I was going to share some thoughts about our branching strategy but thought I’d write a little about manipulating branches first.
This is part two of a series about using Git to manage your Business Central development. This time – rebasing. It seems that rebasing can be something of a daunting subject. It needn’t be. Let’s start with identifying the base of a branch before worrying about rebasing.
