Developing for a new Developers Exam: A Deep Dive Review of Exam PL-400

Dynamics 365 and Power Platform Developers should feel especially blessed at the moment, as we have seen the release of not one, but two, new developer-focused exams within the space of a year. However, as part of this, we must say goodbye to exam MB-400 at the end of 2020 and embrace the new PL-400 exam. For those who have sat MB-400 or are contemplating sitting PL-400 soon, this session is for you - we will do a deep-dive analysis on the skills measured within PL-400, providing useful information on the core topics that you will be expected to know to do well in the exam.

Director at SOLO Cloud Solutions Limited / Business Applications MVP

My name’s Joe Griffin, and I’m Director & Principal Consultant at SOLO Cloud Solutions. I hold various Microsoft certifications in Dynamics CRM/365 Customer Engagement, Azure, Power BI and SQL Server and am also a PRINCE2 Project Manager and Agile Practitioner. I have a broad knowledge of working with and managing projects involving Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement, Azure, Power BI, .NET and other technologies within the Microsoft cloud stack. During this time, I’ve developed a keen interest in coding, and love working with Transact-SQL, JScript, PowerShell, DAX & C#. Thanks to my previous experience, I have practical knowledge operating within the energy efficiency, managed services, retail, print & direct mail and utility sectors. I love getting involved as part of the Business Applications technical community and was very fortunate to receive the Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award from Microsoft in 2020, in recognition of my contributions in this area. When I’m not blogging or tinkering, I enjoy reading, catching up on the latest films/TVs and also enjoy learning about and studying history.
