Birmingham D365 & Power Platform User Group - November 2022 (The Power Pages Special)

Posted 2 months ago to User Groups (3 min read). Last updated 11 days ago

The next Dynamics 365 & Power Platform User Group meeting has been announced for the 24th November, and we can't wait to welcome you back to the Wesleyan for another packed session! As usual, we ask that you aim to arrive for around 6.30pm for networking and food ahead of a 7pm start from our first speaker. If you're driving in - you can park at the B4 Car Park just down the road - or if the train is more your thing we're a short walk from New Street or Snow Hill stations.

Is this event for me?

It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned Dynamics 365 developer, or you're interested in your first foray into the world of the Power Platform - we aim to keep our meetings relatively beginner-friendly while looking at what is possible within this ecosystem.

What does it cost?

Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, not a penny! We even provide tea, coffee and a buffet!

What are the topics this month?

Power Up Your Portal with Power Pages - Sheryl Netley

Announced in May 2022, Power Pages are the fifth product in the Microsoft Power Platform family. Power Pages are a new standalone product that empower low code makers and professional developers to create modern data-powered websites quickly and easily. Come along to find out how!

The Art of the Possible: Spotify Clone using Power Pages and the wider Power Platform - Franco Musso

Fast forward a few steps from Sheryl’s excellent and empowering beginner-friendly introduction and see what customisation and extension possibilities lie ahead when you take the leap from no code to low code. Portals all look the same right? Wrong! Use liquid, FetchXML, JavaScript, the web API and a little Power Automate to break the mould and build a Spotify clone. Not ‘just’ the portal but the holistic solution. I’ll take you through challenges, workarounds and lessons learnt, showing how to style a portal while breaking through the usual form and list experience. Finally, I’ll leave you with my recommended learning path to get from point zero to portal hero; what to master and in what order.
