PowerBI and Machine Learning in Azure with MVP Scott Sewell

Speaker: Scott Sewell |

Join Microsoft MVP Scott Sewell for a webinar where you will see how Power BI is an amazing tool to surface the information from within the depths of Dynamics 365. Beyond the visuals, we’ll discuss connection strategies and compare PowerBI to other reporting and visualization features within CRM for best-fit scenarios. We’ll also explore calling Azure Machine Learning from within a CRM workflow as a surprisingly effective way to score leads and avoid being left underwater in unprocessed data.

TypeScript and Dynamics 365/CRM: Client-side coding done right

TypeScript and Dynamics 365/CRM: Client-side coding done right

Coding and maintaining JavaScript for Dynamics CRM can be quite a hassle if you don’t have a way to manage it properly. Besides knowing how the client-side API works, it also relies on a lot of precise strings to accomplish anything meaningful in regard to the way the specific CRM system is set up.

 

However, by utilizing TypeScript and its many benefits, implementing client-side logic becomes an easy and fast task to accomplish.

 

This is where the TypeScript equivalent of CrmSvcUtil comes into the picture: a tool called XrmDefinitelyTyped. Instead of generating early-bound .NET classes for server-side code, it generates TypeScript interfaces for all your client-side coding needs.

 

Just like early-bound C# classes enable developers to quickly and confidently write custom server-side logic, these generated TypeScript interfaces enable developers to do so client-side as well. Interfaces are generated both for implementing form logic, but also for interacting with the OData endpoints in a type-safe manner (both the old REST endpoint and the new Web API).
