The Business Central Developer role
A Business Central Developer is a technology enthusiast focused on business application development. Business Central developers typically engage in customization or product development projects and operations.
BC (Business Central) developers typically encounter a wide variety of tasks like coding business logic, customizing the UI, making reports and dashboards, integrating external apps, testing, deploying, finetuning performance, monitoring usage, migrating data, working with Power Platform, collaborating in a DevOps environment, analyze business processes, design solutions, and much more.
Therefore, Business Central developers need to have a solid and wide foundational knowledge about the technology and architecture of the Business Central solution. They need to develop solution heuristics during their career and actualize their knowledge continuously.
Business Central developers can work for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central partners or in the organization of the customer where Business Central is used to automate the business processes.
The Business Central Developer Learning Journey
The learning journey for Business Central developers facilitates the onboarding and ongoing learning and personal development of Business Central developers during their career.
We want to empower every developer and every organization to achieve higher development quality and efficiency.
Enabling every new hire to start their development career with confidence and joy matters. Efficiently onboarding in the Business Central development practice with rock-solid foundational Business Central development knowledge and skills is essential. Employees that go through a structured onboarding program are more likely to be with the organization after three years.
Keeping experienced Business Central developers onboard is critical for partner organizations. Commitment, performance, and job satisfaction correlate with the real possibilities for personal development in an organization.
The Business Central Developer Learning Journey has various stages: Become Proficient, Transform, Progress and Specialize.
New hires will first onboard in the new Business Central application and technology. They need to build a solid and relevant foundational knowledge and skills to become proficient. Once acquired, they can progress to the next level of required technological knowledge for the job.
Experienced Business Central (or Dynamics NAV) developers are already proficient in BC development, but some may lack the expertise of modern cloud-oriented app and event driven development in Business Central. They can first transform into modern Business Central Cloud developers and continue their learning journey with advanced and specialized knowledge and skills.
