CRM 2011 – Silverlight CRM attachment project on codeplex

It’s interesting I am seeing more and more silverlight applications being added to CRM and it makes me want finish studying my 70-515 exam quicker so I can start playing around with Silverlight myself.

which reminds there is a good interview with David Yack here

David has a couple of books out soon on Silverlight, I read a couple of the early chapters and they should be good.

Silverlight 4 Jumpstart

CRM 4 as a Rapid Application Development Platform

– Book Site

Anyway back to the topic, one of my favourite bloggers MSCRM blogger has recently created a silverlight project to allow you to attach features onto an entity in CRM.  You can read the original blog post here, I would also recommend reading other blog posts because although he isn’t a prolific blogger the quality of the blog posts are worth waiting for.

CRM 2011 – Silverlight Development Resources

I saw a tweet from CRMLady – Anne Stanton which popped up with CRM 2011 and Silverlight Development resources.  ooohh interesting I thought

I haven’t really used Silverlight yet but once I finished studying for monster 70-515 .NET 4 web apps exam then it is on my list of things to look at so this tweet interested me

The tweet pointed to the Southern New England Dynamics xRM/CRM User Group blog and this blog post – Silverlight + CRM Development Resources, it’s also worth checking out some other blog entries because there is some good resources of information on there, have a look here

good work all round

CRM 2011 – Coming Soon – David Yack’s new Book – Using Silverlight with CRM 2011

When I heard the mighty Yack (David Yack blog) was writing a book about CRM 2011 and silverlight I thought this was an excellent combination.  I feel I have got to know David quite a bit after watching all the CRM 2011 Development videos which are included in the CRM Development Kit.

I have been interested in what I have heard about silverlight (Microsoft version of Flash!) and would like to learn more about it, I would also like to learn about how you can use it with CRM 2011.  David’s new book is going to do just that because the book is going to do what it says in the title

Using Silverlight with CRM 2011

you can read about him giving a brief description of the book on his blog here

So why am I talking about the book which isn’t released until March.  Well on his blog he asked for people to help proof read the book, I volounteered and today I have been reading some of the book. I cant say much about it but so far I found it interesting and easy to read, it will be a great book for .NET/CRM developers who want to learn about Silverlight and how to use it with CRM 2011.

The only downside to this at the moment is I have only read one chapter and now want to read some more
