Now and again I get asked how to become a better CRM Developer, so I thought I would create a blog to point people towards and here it is.

1.  Decide you want become a better Developer

Improving and becoming a better CRM Developer is a state of mind/attitude, you have to want to get better, you have to strive to be better every day.

It’s like trying to get someone to read a book you like, you can’t make them read that book no matter how good you say it is, it’s only when the person wants to read it.

2.  Make a plan

Dynamics GP 2010 R2 Database SDK – Siva


I was in fact awaiting Sivakumar’s post about the new section that he has been working on. I got the privilege to go thru’ this first before his post went public.

Siva’s new section is all about GP 2010 R2 SQL Objects (Tables, DBs, Stored Procedures, Views, etc.). Like the one we have in MS Word documents that can be accessed from GP SDK, this is also an interesting concept and also very informative for all developers out there, who may not have access to SQL Server on a real time.

Read his post here, Dynamics GP 2010 R2 Database SDK, and share your thoughts with him. 

I am sure this is going to be of immense help for all of us.

I am currently watching Convergence 2012 virtual session named “The Road to Microsoft Dynamics GP ’12′”and got this snapshot which is self-explanatory:

I took this snapshot as is from the virtual session.

Recently I converted all our existing VBA customizations (critical ones) to Dexterity and now this news. Those who were preaching against Dexterity and predicted it’s doomsday, please change your mindset at least from now.
