Announcing: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Developer Ramp Up Kit – Now Available

July 8, 2008 9 comments

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Developer Ramp Up Kit is based on lessons learnt during eighteen months of instructor-led training by the Developer and Platform Evangelist Group at Microsoft as part of the CRM 4.0 early adopter initiatives.

This kit is for .NET based developers who want to ramp up and build on top of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform. Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 uses familiar components such as Web Service endpoints, Windows Workflow Foundation, SQL Server Reporting Services, and more; making it a general purpose platform for any line-of-business applications.

The kit drills into development details and explains how .NET-based developers can interact with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform. It includes videos, presentations, hands-on labs, and a Virtual PC environment for practicing.

Familiarity with the .NET Framework, Microsoft Visual C#, Jscript, Microsoft SQL Server and general Web development is recommended.
