Microsoft Dynamics CRM has a robust API that includes web services and an extensive SDK. As you develop CRM Plugins and custom integrations, you will find that there are many complexities and challenges associated with successfully interacting with this API.
In order to ensure that you have all of the tools necessary to achieve success with CRM development, Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 API Development presents the essential aspects of API development including plugin development and registration. In addition to Plugins, you will work through building out several integrations that work with both the SDK and the Web Service layer. You will also build a C# application that creates records within CRM using the API, work with Scribe Online for integration and migration, design reports that read data from CRM using FetchXML, and interact with the OData REST service using JScript. Once you’ve worked through the various topics presented, you will find that you will have the advanced skills required for working with CRM 2011 Online and On Premises.
