msdyn365bc - Developer Background Learning Essentials

In today's fast paced world of digital transformation many developers and consultants find themselves a bit overwhelmed with all the learning content out there. The Microsoft Learning portal is a great tool for learning all about Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, however you may find that there are just some topics not covered and you wish you knew more about.

I've put a list of my favourite PluralSight courses that I've found to supplement your Dynamics 365 Business Central development journey. Although these courses don't make use of Business Central, the subject matter will make you a super star and jump start you to the next level.

1. Microsoft Azure: The Big Picture
