COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Sept. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynamics CRM 2011 offers applications developers many choices for extending their software with this platform. Silverlight is a solid development platform choice for both online and offline use. Combining Silverlight with Dynamics CRM offers strong extensibility points that make applications both powerful and graphically engaging. Silverlight+CRM is the first book to combine these two technologies for developers that want to build better business software.
"CRM developers have long had to piece together on their own how to marry the power of Silverlight with Microsoft Dynamics CRM. There simply hasn't been sufficient coverage of this topic or real-world guidance on how to get the most out of CRM 2011's support for Silverlight. Until now. David Yack's Silverlight+CRM book bridges the gap between these two technologies, starting with the fundamentals of what Silverlight can do for CRM developers and users, and how to begin building and deploying Silverlight apps. The book tackles many of the complexities and challenges that CRM developers may face with this technology. I especially appreciated the chapters on using CRM's OData endpoint and debugging your Silverlight code. This is a must-read for all of the developers on our team!" - Matt Wittemann; Director of Solution Architecture, C5 Insight, and author of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Administration Bible
Published by Colorado Springs-based We Speak You Learn, the book's format is easy to follow either start to finish or one chapter at a time. The book is available in both print and e-book formats.
Author David Yack is an internationally respected technologist delivering solutions for clients, training on emerging technology as well as speaking at large-scale industry events. He is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) and a Microsoft Regional Director. He has authored several other technology books including the still popular CRM as a Rapid Development Platform (2008) and Silverlight Jumpstart 4 (2010). Both of these titles, as well as the new Silverlight + CRM, are available online from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and several other retail outlets. Silverlight + CRM can be purchased as either an eBook or print book direct from the publisher at http://www.silverlightpluscrm.com.
Dynamics CRM MVP Roberto Nocera says, "If you plan to use Silverlight and CRM in your implementation, this book is an essential resource. David explores real cases with practical examples and full source code."
Dynamics CRM is software that tracks the relational data of customers and the interaction and communication with them. By extending it, it then becomes xRM, the "x" would be whatever you manage, if not customers (applications, students, cars, etc). Combining these concepts gives developers a strong customer management toolset that can be re-wrapped as a custom development package. These solutions can also be sold via Microsoft's Dynamics Marketplace.
