Virtual Controls: Because Standard Controls Are So Yesterday!

Did you hear about a new addition to the PCF world? It's called a virtual code component and it may not sound like a big deal when you hear it for the first time, but it's really huge.

It allows users to increase the performance of our code controls since controls are now becoming part of the host application's virtual DOM. No more need for packaging the Fluent UI and React in every single control that you make, it will use the versions of the host application that also results in a 10x difference in bundled code size.

Join this session if you want to learn the basics of virtual controls, how to convert standard controls to virtual or tips for coding virtual controls in general since there are some differences from the standard ones.

Pro & Citizen symbiosis with Virtual Tables

Virtual tables recently got a lot of new shiny features, but as usual, people don't use them that much because of the dark past of the feature itself. Did we finally get all we need to push them to another level for a final reborn or is it just a one-patch wonder that must be forgotten? We will show you how pros and citizens can work in symbiosis to build exceptional solutions that consume data outside our holy database called Dataverse. Are you ready to go on a virtual adventure with us?

10 PCF Tips & Tricks

Power Apps component framework is GA for a while now and people started to use it on a daily basis. There are some things that I noticed that most of the people are doing, but could be done better or easier, so I would like to share how you can do it the right way. There will be topics around control configuration, development, debugging and performance. You are still wondering what is on the list? Join the session and find out what are those 10 things that can be done better when developing your custom controls.

Dataverse Webhooks 101

Have you ever encountered the Dataverse constraint that limits your use of well-known software libraries, imposes a sandbox mode restriction or requires that all background processes end within 2 minutes? The answers to these questions lie in the use of Azure Functions technology that allows us to perform long-lasting and complex processes in the cloud. The demo will show us how to overcome Dataverse limitations via webhook technology and implement a solution that will bypass all or at least almost all the limitations that the platform itself imposes for a relatively small fee.

PCF = Web resources v2.0?

Professional developers finally got the right tool to do the frontend magic on the platform. Since the day one of the preview release it made a huge impact on the Dynamics developer community which resulted in a lot of community controls created. The session will cover the concepts around the framework that allows us to make 3rd party controls that will have look and feel just like Microsoft's 1st party ones. We will cover the whole process from initializing the PCF project to deploying the control to the instance. It's time for Web resources v2.0 and we call it PowerApps controls!

Flow-tastrophe? Conquer Flows with a smile using Flow Execution History

Ever felt like debugging Power Automate flows was a slow-motion marathon? Join me for a session that promises to turbocharge your troubleshooting skills! We'll reminisce about the days when finding flow hiccups was like searching for a needle in a haystack.

Introducing the superhero of debugging tools: "Flow Execution History"! This tool doesn't just make debugging a breeze, it turns it into a victory lap. Say goodbye to endless scrolling and endless cups of coffee.

Through live demonstrations and real-life goof-ups (I mean scenarios!), you'll see how this tool transforms you from a flow-fumbler to a flow-fixing maestro.

Lightning fast PCF delivery

Join this session to learn how to make your PCF development faster and more efficient. We will see which tools to use to speed up the whole process in the development phase. Starting a project, debugging & automation are just some of the topics that will be covered in this session.

The Rebirth of Virtual Entities

It’s been a while since you heard of virtual entities, but with the latest update, they are back in action with some amazing additions. Join the session if you want to learn when and why to use virtual entities in the first place or maybe you are familiar with the concept, but you want to learn how to build custom data providers that can perform full CRUD operations on your data stored in some other system directly from your model-driven app.

Custom Code Connectors

Did you know that you can now include C# code inside a custom connector? This opens endless possibilities to achieve tasks that were previously not available in tools like Power Automate. It's time to utilize your pro developers even more in the low code/ no-code platform space. Join the session to see how can you implement a simple connector that will run only custom code.
