Developing Dynamics CRM plug-ins is hard, right? Well, not really; there just happens to be a lot to know and understand about both the development process and the actual implementation process.
Our teaching methodology involves you writing a lot of plug-ins, after all, doing is the best way to learn, right? We will have between fifteen and twenty exercises, some of which will be conducted in class, some of which will be assigned as homework. Again, lots and lots of hands–on lab work to help you reinforce the concepts of plug–in development.
Here are the high–level topics that we’ll cover:
- Plugin architecture and design
- Setting up your development environment
- Developing a basic plug–in
- Deploying plug-ins
- Debugging plug-ins

What is required to attend the workshop?
In order to be effective in this class, I need you to be knowledgeable in two things:
1. I need you to be a .NET developer, because we’ll be coding in C# and using Visual Studio to create our plug-ins.
2. I need you to know and understand Dynamics CRM. Without a firm grasp of how the product works, there is no way for you to create a plug–in that interacts with the Dynamics CRM system.
How about some goodies?
Did I mention that I’ll be giving you the same tools and templates that I use to do my own plug–in development? Well, I am. This will really jump–start your plug–in development efforts.
Got any questions?
If so, just let me know.

I found Mitch Milam’s workshop to be a great way to jump-start my plug-in development. Besides presenting class material in such a way that it was easy to comprehend, Mitch also provided Visual Studio templates. These templates proved to be extremely useful because they take care of the necessary plumbing when writing plug-ins, speeding up the development time. Additionally, the labs we worked on in class covered real-life scenarios directly applicable to my day-to-day work. In fact soon after the workshop, I solved a business problem by building a plug-in that was based on one of the labs we worked on in class.

Mitch’s Plug-in Development workshop helped me get out of the gate and a good way down the path of C# development for Microsoft Dynamics CRM – including both Plug-ins and Workflow Assemblies.
Mitch is an excellent instructor who responds to all questions and helps people along at their own pace.
I highly recommend this workshop for anyone who is looking to get into the Microsoft CRM development game. It will accelerate your process and save you more than enough time to pay for itself.
Your class was an eye opening experience. In addition to learning about Plug-In Development this class exposed me to so many other aspects of Microsoft Dynamics CRM that I was not aware of.
