Development for Microsoft Dynamics CRM
Welcome to the developer documentation for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online! We’ve made some changes to the structure of the SDK to more clearly separate the core software development kit documentation from the extensions provided for developers. You can read all the documentation online in the MSDN library or in the CHM found in the download package. The download package also includes assemblies, developer tools, and a wide range of sample code and other resources. The download package is available here: Microsoft Dynamics CRM SDK. There is no installer for this SDK, simply unzip the package and you are ready to go.
In This Section
- Software Development Kit for Microsoft Dynamics CRM
- Find information for developers writing server side code, custom business logic, integration modules, workflow assemblies, and plug-ins. You'll see an architectural overview of Microsoft Dynamics CRM, the entity model, security model, and Web services. You'll find walkthroughs that help guide you through the new features. There are also many samples that demonstrate the features described in the SDK, and more are being added every month!
- SDK Extensions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM
- Learn about extensions to the core SDK that offer additional capabilities and a different developer experience. Currently there are two: Developer Extensions and the Portal Development Toolkit. Developer Extensions are essentially a wrapper around the existing SDK assemblies, providing you with extra functionality on top of existing functionality. The Portal Development Toolkit allows you to create portal Web pages that interact with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. There are several portal solutions developed using this toolkit that are available on the Microsoft Dynamics Marketplace.
