I'm pleased to share I am speaking at this year's Boston Code Camp on November 23rd. I am sharing the wonder and excitement that is Microsoft's Power Platform, from a developer's point of view.
This is a pretty simple concept that can bring tremendous value and insight to you, the creator of a PowerApp. Modern development practices encourage gathering insights from your users' interactions within your application. With these insights, you can decide how to mature and grow your product. How do we achieve this within PowerApps?
Check out my latest post on Slalom Technology's site. Microsoft describes Office 365 (O365) as a collaborate anywhere, on any device, solution. O365 is all about collaboration — and it’s true. The primary collaboration services in O365 are email and SharePoint, but there’s more than that. Many of the capabilities in O365 help supplement existing collaborative activities,...

The seamless "dev" experience between PowerApps and Flow is remarkable. I love how easy it is to create a Flow from PowerApps, and it just works. However, there's one issue I see that I wanted to share to help others prevent headaches down the road. When you're in PowerApps and create a Flow, or in... Continue Reading →

Something like: Okay, maybe it's not that beautiful, but it is colorful, has an image, and pops in comparison to black and white text only emails. Microsoft Flow sends... Continue Reading →
I love these little wins that truly highlight the power of Office 365! Here's my use case: in the Boston office of Slalom, we have an annual Learning Day that everyone is required to attend. It's a fun day, and we do learn some great things from it. Every consultant and leader has to register... Continue Reading →
The Likert question type is a great option in Forms, which gives users a matrix of sorts, to provide a valuable answer. Check out this example I use for our user group's feedback survey: Some fun facts about the Likert scale on Wikipedia. Using Microsoft Flow, I'd like to perform some automation when this survey...

I Love Microsoft Flow I don't know what it is, but I spend a lot of time in it, from small silly Flows to real time savers. I've shared a few of my Flows already, and will be sharing more. I may be a little addicted to automation, Flow being the biggest contender, but also... Continue Reading →
