Looking for Help with Power Automate and Power Apps? Maybe We can Help

Haniel Croitoru and I recently had the extreme pleasure of presenting at SharePoint Conference Twin Cities.  This is a great one day conference with one of the largest user bases I have ever seen.  Haniel and I had a great experience presenting on getting help with learning Power Apps and Power Automate (Microsoft Flow).  The presentation is full of tips and tricks from both of us as well.  We had a great room full of attendees with some great interaction.  As promised I have uploaded the slide deck for this session so the attendees can have for themselves.

Integrating Systems with Power Automate and Power Apps

I recently had the extreme pleasure of presenting at SharePoint Conference Twin Cities.  This is a great one day conference with one of the largest user bases I have ever seen.  I believe the total count of registrants was over 750 and over 400 attended!  One of the sessions I presented was about how easy and efficiently you can integrate multiple systems with Power Apps and Power Automate (Microsoft Flow).  Had a great room full of attendees with some great interaction.  As promised I have uploaded the slide deck for this session so the attendees can have for themselves.

Building Great Solutions with PowerApps and Flow – SPSMontreal

This spring I had the great privilege of speaking in front of a great room of people at SharePoint Saturday Montreal.  At this conference i outlined how easy it was to build a great solution from conception to implementation using just PowerApps, Flow and a few connectors.  In the space of half a session (I had to do some talking too ;-p ) I build a full solution using PowerApps, Flow, SharePoint and Azure Database.  As promised here is the slide deck from my presentation.

Leading Practices for Building Anything SharePoint or O365

The other day a friend of mine, Daniel Glen, asked if I could step in last minute to help out remotely for a presentation to the Nashville O365 User Group.  I of course said yes and then promptly dumped all the stuff I had to do that night on my wife (oops).  I sent Daniel the tickle trunk of presentations that I was ready to do last minute and I was surprised when he selected Leading Practices for Building Anything SharePoint or O365.  It’s an older presentation and one I was actually considering pulling out of my active list.  However, as I was reviewing it I found that the core of the presentation still held true with anything you should do with O365 and SharePoint.  In many cases, any project could use some or all of the concepts I discussed.

Well the presentation went over very well.  It’s a really good group of people there in Nashville and even though I was 2600km (1615+) miles away I can honestly say that session was the most fun I have had yet giving that presentation.  Thanks Nashville.  Let me know when you need another speaker.

 

As promised, here’s a copy of the slide deck.

Business Connectivity Services – It’s Not Dead… Yet

I had a great time recently presenting at CalSpoug’s SharePoint Saturday.  The first session I presented was on SharePoint Business Connectivity Service.  I have done this session quite a few times and I always have at least one attendee state they have never heard of BCS before.  This session was no different.  One of the things I cover is the importance of BCS in different environments.  Many will argue it is an old, unnecessary system.  I do not necessarily disagree with this.  However, I argue it isn’t dead yet.  If you are working with simple data in a SQL Database or even more complex but well-organized data in a database the ease of use within BCS is quickly seen.  In 5-10 minutes you can connect to your data and present it within SharePoint utilizing built-in forms (no custom form development).  Users will be able to read and update the data immediately (assuming permissions are configured already).  There’s more to it than just this and you can take a look at my slide deck to see.

Having said that, I do believe that I see an end to BCS.  PowerApps and Flows make accessing data just as easy and more configurable through the many, many connectors available.  As these connectors mature and the tools grow, the use cases for BCS will slowly disappear.  However, we aren’t there yet.  BCS is still there and still very easy to use.
