Dynamics 365 developer

Copper Contributor

Hi Techie Guys,

I am a .Net developer. I have worked on CRM 11 and again shifted back to .Net. Now wanted to shift to Dynamics 365 as a developer. The first thing i had a look in the list of certificates where the MB-400 is getting retired by end of this year. So was bit confused where to start as a developer yes i already pursuing MB-901 but what next. I love being a developer. So what will be the correct path.

Hello @Dynamics_Reku

The MB-901 is for sure a good place to start. From what I hear you should have a closer look at all the Power Platform (PL-900) stuff and go for the Solution Architect certifications like Dynamics 365 + Power Platform Solution Architect (MB-600) and Dynamics 365: Finance and Operations Apps Solution Architect (MB-700). Have a look at

At the bottom of the page select the box "Microsoft Training and Certifications Guide" for more info.

I hope that helps

Thank you :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes: so much Rolf, as you suggested I will start with the power platform. Yes I already started digging in to a certification details. For Sure my end target is solution architect But yeah long way to go. Again thanks for your kind and prompt response :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:


@Dynamics_Reku The replacement for MB-400 is the PL-400. The PL-400 is not much different as the MB-400 was really a Power Platform developer exam anyway. I blogged on it here


You will find some things familiar to you from CRM 2011 such as plug-ins.


Joe Griffin and I ran a study group for the CRM User Group a few months ago for MB-400 very much aimed at on-premise CRM devs looking to get into this certification 

Thanks @Julian Sharp , I have gone through the link you have sent about PL-900. As per Rolf and your suggestion let me go step by step and try to achieve the Solution Architect certification. Thanks again for your kind response.
