Great timing, coming just one day after Microsoft released CRM 2011: I just received my very own copies of the book I co-authored with Geoff Ables, the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Administration Bible, from Wiley Publishing. It’s now available for order from your favorite bookseller!
Microsoft is moving quickly on the heels of the January release of CRM 2011 Online, and this week’s release of the 2011 Implementation Guide and SDK, they have now released the RTM version of Dynamics CRM 2011 for on-premise and partner-hosted installation. Available from the Microsoft download site.
For those of you who have been keeping score, Microsoft has been making available a number of pre-release versions of the SDK for CRM 2011. There was a Beta SDK and a Release Candidate SDK. The complete, official SDK for CRM 2011 has now also been released (version 5.0.1), and is chock full of good things for developers and customizers. It can be downloaded here.
Microsoft has put together a very nice package to help developers learn how to extend Dynamics CRM 2011. The Dynamics CRM 2011 Developer Training Kit includes videos, presentations, code samples and hands-on labs with detailed instructions. Best of all: it’s totally free. Read about it on Girish Raja’s blog and then download it here.
