DFW Mobile .NET meeting this week: Mobile Design Patterns with Xamarin Forms

I am presenting at the DFW Mobile .NET meeting on Wednesday, August 12th.  You can find out more, and register for the meeting here.

In this discussion we will cover both user interface and code–based design patterns many developers may encounter while working with Xamarin Forms to develop cross–platform mobile applications.

I hope to see you there.

August Training: Turn your .NET Developer into a Dynamics CRM Developer

Course Description

If you are looking to get started with Dynamics CRM development, and are looking for an instructor-led, hands-on workshop, then let me introduce you to Turn your .NET Developer into a Dynamics CRM Developer.

In case you did not know, Microsoft decided to only offer the Extending Dynamics CRM course via eLearning, starting with Dynamics CRM 2013. eLearning, which is a self–study program, is great for many people, but I think students gain a tremendous amount of learning and understanding from having an instructor who works with Dynamics CRM development on a daily basis. This student-instructor interaction combined with the ability for the student to ask questions and obtain clarifications, makes this course all the more valuable.

Who:

This class is taught by Mitch Milam, nine–time Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for Dynamics CRM and an independent consultant specializing in Dynamics CRM architecture, development, and training.

What:

We have taken the topics normally covered by the official Microsoft Extending Dynamics course, and expanded their depth quite substantially. Instead of a three–day course, this is a five–day course with most of the extra content being the addition of a large number of hands–on labs. The information covered is relevant to both Dynamics CRM 2013 and 2015.

When:

Monday, August 31st through Friday, September 4th.

Class starts at 8:00am CST and will last five or six hours per day, depending on the day. Please budget the entire day so that you have time to complete the homework assignments.

Where:

This is an Internet-based workshop. Classroom time and discussions will be facilitated using GotoMeeting. Each student will be given their own virtual development environment for the duration of the course. This will allow for the completion of labs and homework without causing conflicts with the other students.

Ready to Make the Investment?

The price per student is $2,495 with the class limited to 20 students.

Next Week's Webinar: Becoming a Dynamics CRM Architect

Hi Everyone,

On Wednesday, July 1st, I’ll be holding a free webinar to discuss the requirements for a person to make the move from being a Dynamics CRM user, administrator, or developer, into becoming an architect of Dynamics CRM business solutions.

 What to expect

In this webinar we will be discussing the basic technical areas of expertise and skillsets that must be developed on your path to becoming an architect. In part, if not in full.

We will also be reviewing several CRM-related design scenarios which will highlight the types of things you need to consider when developing solutions for Dynamics CRM.

At minimum, I would expect you to come out of the webinar with at least a basic understanding of the types of questions that must be asked when designing Dynamics CRM-related solutions.

What I can use your help with

Feedback during the webinar will, of course, be accepted. In addition, I will send out a survey afterwards to help gather additional data points.

Who should attend?

Anyone who would like to further their knowledge related to solving business problems using Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Requirements

You must have working knowledge of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0, 2011, 2013, or 2015. This is neither an Introduction to Microsoft Dynamics CRM or a development class, but you do need to know the capabilities of the product.

Sessions

I am actually holding three sessions to accommodate attendees from around the world:

Session 1: UTC+1

Wed, Jul 1, 2015 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM CDT Register Now

Session 2: UTC-5

Wed, Jul 1, 2015 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM CDT Register Now

Session 3: UTC+10

Wed, Jul 1, 2015 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM CDT Register Now

(this translates to 10:00am, Thursday, July 2nd, in Sydney, AU)

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks, Mitch
