5 myths about Dynamics 365 CE JavaScript development

Hi Everyone,


I thought that I would take a few minutes to discuss a few myths that I have heard from people over the years on why they don’t want to become a Dynamics 365 CE JavaScript developer.


1. It is too hard

Life is hard – but you still get out of bed and get going in the morning, don’t you?  Like anything we try and master, it becomes easier with practice. The more you practice, the easier it gets. The easier it gets, the better you become.


2. I do not know anything about programming

Neither did I; but as mentioned in #1, it just takes practice.

The best thing that you can do for yourself is to know and understand the Dynamics 365 CE product. Without foundational product knowledge, it is difficult produce automations. You can pick up programming fundamentals from blogs, videos, and courses, many of which are free.


3. It will turn me into a nerd

Well, I, um, can’t help you there. That is always a danger, but I’ve never seen that as a bad thing. Smile


4. I don’t have time

As I have mentioned in many webinars: The way you eat an elephant is one bite at a time.  Even Albert Einstein is famous for this quote:

“Anyone can be a genius, if they pick just one specific subject and study it diligently just 15 minutes each day.”

Now being a genius, may not be what you were looking for, but you can move from student to master with a couple of years of applied education and practice.


5. I don’t know where to start

Well this one is easy. My JavaScript course is opening up soon and we’ll spend the next few months together working through a variety of scenarios to help build your vocabulary and skillset.

If the timing or budget don’t work out this time, there are literally TONS of free resources to get you going. There are lots, and lots, of blog articles, my YouTube Channel has several JavaScript-related webinar recordings, and other tools, code snippets, and samples abound.  Just look around.


And if you still have questions, then please drop me a line and I’ll see what I can do to help.

Thanks, Mitch
