The European Power Platform Conference (EPPC), held between 6 and 8 April 2022 in Berlin, Germany, will offer full-day workshops focused on the fundamentals of the Microsoft Power Platform, Power BI administration, extending the Power Platform using Azure Services, and Power Platform governance with Dataverse.
The Microsoft Power Platform Fundamentals workshop, led by Microsoft most valuable player (MVP) Vlad Catrinescu, will explore how low-code solutions can help an enterprise reduce development time by up to 90 per cent. This means a growing number of enterprises are now looking for skilled Power Platform professionals to build apps faster. In this workshop, attendees will learn the fundamentals of all the different applications inside the Power Platform and learn about the core components inside.
Core components will include automating business processes with Power Automate and creating chatbots, apps and dashboards with Power Virtual agents, Power Automate and Power BI. This workshop also covers PL-900 Microsoft Certification exam objectives.
Vishwas Lele, Microsoft MVP, will cover how to extend the Power Platform using Azure services. Enterprise Low Code Application Platforms (LCAP), such as Microsoft Power Platform, are being increasingly adopted by professional developers. This one-day workshop will focus on the professional developer-centric view of Power Platform, exploring .topics such as parameter scopes, data types, data optimisations, delegation, concurrency, delayed load, and more. Other subjects covered in the workshop will include Chrome DevTools, App Checker, and tools like Monitor and Tests that developers typically expect from an application platform.
Furthermore, the Power BI Administration and Governance Training Class, held by Microsoft MVP Ásgeir Gunnarsson, will be organised into four parts to teach concepts and apply them. The first part of the class will look at the main settings of a Power BI environment and determine which are essential, while the second part will look at the administration options available with Power BI premium. Next, Gunnarsson will investigate the role of enterprise Gateway, covering how to set it up, configure and administer it, before by looking at Power BI governance and how to monitor a Power BI environment.
Finally, Microsoft MVP Chris Huntingford’s session on Power Platform Governance with Dataverse will explore the various governance layers within the Power Platform with a particular focus on Dataverse and how it can be used as both a data storage facility and a tool for governance purposes. This tutorial will consist of a combination of presentations, hands-on labs and use cases where participants will have the opportunity to update core elements of the platform, review errors, fix problems and gain some experience leveraging Dataverse for governance purposes.
