I'm 20 and as I am getting closer to graduating from CS I decided to apply for jobs last September and one of the most paid (also great company) was a Dynamics 365 F&O technical consultant job that I accepted. So far I've been working with X++ where I've created reports, custom entities, dashboard implementations etc.
I have nothing much to complain about so far and I'd love to hear an input from someone with experience - is it a great choice to start working with D365 at early age?
What are the things that perhaps I should delve into more that would help me a lot ahead in this career?
One thing to note is as Microsoft continues to evolve the D365 applications you'll notice less and less actual developing is required for an implementation project. I'm noticing a trend of development work being pushed abroad for what I expect a lower cost to the company (this is true for major consulting firms). I am sure you will have no problem securing employment in the next 5 or so years. Just know that the pool of developers may exceed the demand by the industry. Again this is all speculation but you can see this even in small aspects of updates in D365 (F&O) - limiting customization, standardizing entities and so on. I wouldn't worry too much so long as you're flexing your development skills with personal projects and/or freelance work.
Hard to answer this question. It is all about the goal you have for yourself. What would be your job of interest in about 5-10 years? I think with only 6-7 months experience, this is not much yet. I don't know how complex the development tasks were, which you received. Did you have to do database modeling? Written Technical design documents?
Working with the Power platform is more drag and drop compared to x++, but it will help in understanding the data model.
