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.
