Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations Visual Studio first look :)

I’ll like to share the interface in visual studio of what a Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations package looks like.

On the left, you have the application explorer that contains the AOT structure. Right click on the items there to create extensions.

In the middle you have the Form designer and Design patterns package.

On the right, you have the stock standard solution explorer + usual tabs.

On the bottom right, you have the properties windows. This window is used a lot more than in any other kind of developer to set properties such as data sources.

Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations development machine – Resources usage

This is the developer VM created by Microsoft once you stand up the Development environment through Life Cycle Services.

Thought I would share an interesting note: 56GB of RAM and already 50% is used when it is just one developer logged on to the machine.
