Power Automate advanced patterns and best practices with Doctor Flow.

You have used Power Automate before; for years, you have created, deployed, and perhaps supported cloud flows in production. Then, following this session, you are ready to learn more and move your knowledge to the next level.

In this intensive session, Doctor Flow, aka Serge Luca, will summarize and illustrate (with plenty of demos) the key features, patterns, tips, and tricks that you need to be aware of flow/Power Automate if you want to shine and deliver a successful Flow/Power Automate project with the Power Platform. These practices have been tested across 26 enterprise Power Platforms projects since 2016. New Power Automate features introduced by Microsoft in 2023 and 2024 will also be demonstrated.

Unified Power Platform Governance - lessons learned after seven years

In this session, Isabelle Van Campenhoudt (Data Platform MVP) and Doctor Flow (Serge Luca- Business Application MVP) will illustrate their proposal for a unified pragmatic Power Platform governance and adoption plan combining Power Apps, Power Automate, and Power BI.
Even though Power BI and the Power Platform app creation tools differ, the governance and adoption challenges remain the same.
Conceptually, when it comes to self-service BI and citizen developers, the classical centralized governance approach does not fit the needs of flexibility required by the business.
The presenters will detail the benefit of having a single polymorphic approach where the concrete associated actions can be product-specific.
Many elements of this governance have been experimented on in the field by Isabelle during the last eight years for Power BI and the previous seven years for Power Automate and Power Apps by Doctor Flow.
Many use cases will illustrate this session to be aligned with real-world requirements.

Power Platform for professional developers with Doctor Flow

The Power Platform is a low-code SaaS platform that allows many people to create small to medium size applications. But some of these applications can quickly become unmaintainable, insecure, and not scalable. After using the platform almost every day for six years, we have defined a set of good practices for Power Users and professional developers embracing this platform. Keeping it simple, following good patterns, and not over-engineering is essential.
However, professional developers must be aware of compelling PaaS features, like (.Net) plug-in, custom API, external events, Azure DevOps, Dataverse security, transactions, and more, that we will illustrate in this session. Therefore, this session targets Power Users who want to upgrade their skills to the next level and professional developers who have to create complex and scalable enterprise applications.
