Course Overview
(Music playing) Hi, my name is Vishwas Lele, and welcome to my course, Introduction to Common Data Service, or CDS. CDS is part of the Microsoft Power platform and is one of the fastest-growing, low-code, no-code platforms for building high productivity paths applications. This course is a quick introduction to CDS capabilities, and no prior experience with CDS is required. Some of the major topics that we will cover will include the common data model, entities, relationships, auditing, and annotations, business rules and workflow, the CDS REST API, security governance and integration aspects of CDS. By the end of this course, you will have a solid foundation for developing business applications using CDS. I hope that you'll join me on this journey to learn CDS with the introduction to the CDS course at Pluralsight.
