Hi, I'm George Doubinski and I have been around since the .NET 1.0 days. Microsoft MVP since 2007, I am an average coder, good speaker, and excellent trainer.

Most importantly, I enable others to build remarkable things on the Power Platform with code both high and low.

If you cannot find me online committing code to GitHub, tipping on https://crmtipoftheday.com, or talking on https://crm.audio, it must be a rare occasion when I run, spend time with the family, or travel from A to B.

Advanced Power Automate Cloud Flows

Designed for experienced makers with understanding of Power Automate, this workshop aims to introduce advanced techniques beyond two step templates and buttons that send emails.

You know how to automate your own business processes with Power Automate cloud flows and understand the different controls available. It's time for a unique combination of an "anything but code" and "everything in code" to bring you demonstrations and hands-on labs to take your automation skills to the next level with Power Automate Gymnastics.

We will begin by covering real-life scenarios inspired by 'List, Array, and Loop Walk into a bar' supported by seamless error handling. This will give you a strong foundation of working with data in all shapes and forms, from multiple sources - effectively and stress free.

After that, we will delve into the nooks and crannies of the Dataverse connector and overcoming its limitations (traversing the language of GUID, Dataversing, Web API wizardry and child [flow] labor) to help you master all your Canvas, Model-driven, and Dynamics 365 app automations.

This will be followed by automation with 'the gateway to data and intelligence in Microsoft 365' aka Microsoft Graph. This enables you, amongst other things, to automate Excel without the rigid demands of the Excel connector. Better known as Puppetry of Excel.

The emphasis throughout the workshop will be on creating building blocks and ready to go flows that participants will be able to take away with them and re-use in their projects without risk of injury

George has learnt plenty of tips from their years of bending over backwards with Power Automate Gymnastics. He will share plenty of life changing techniques you didn’t know you needed - until now. Bend at will. Stretchy pants optional.

This class is for all you experienced Azure/Power Platform/Dynamics 365/CRM developers who want to take your skills to the next level.

Mastering Custom Code in Power Platform Connectors

In this engaging session, we delve into advanced coding techniques within Power Platform Custom Connectors, tailored for developers looking to broaden their skills beyond Dataverse plugins and JavaScript.

We'll start by exploring how to augment existing services using custom code. This part of the session will focus on techniques to enhance and customize your services in the connectors, while leaving the underlying backend architecture unchanged. This approach will equip you with the skills to adapt the Power Platform to specific project requirements.

Next, we turn our attention to the development of code-only connectors that operate independently of backend connectivity. We will provide practical examples, including converting CSV files to JSON, leveraging Regex, building custom parsers, and manipulating dates, to illustrate these concepts.

Whether your goal is to create independent service simulations or enhance existing connectors, this session promises to arm you with the practical knowledge and skills necessary to innovate and elevate your Power Platform projects.

Whether it's Azure Functions, API Management, or your Favourite.js front-end library, you can build extensions for Power Platform that will make you a hero. Create custom connectors, plugins, custom actions, PCFs, put machine learning to use, and work with the platform makers to save the day!

And for the fun part we're going to use the most expensive retail thermometer to measure outdoor temperature 16,000km away. With Power Platform and Azure. Because why not.

The Story of 1500 Tips: Building a Community Brand One Day at a Time

Hi there, George Doubinski here. You may remember me from appearances on Power Platform and Dynamics CRM Tip of the Day (https://crmtipoftheday.com/) and CRM.Audio (https://crm.audio/). Over the years, these two have evolved into [somewhat] recognisable brands within our tight-knit CRM / Dynamics 365 / Power Platform community. We have pins, buttons, and stickers to prove it.

I’ve often been asked what it takes to build a brand like this. It’s time to share the story.

In 60 minutes, I'll tell you all about the spark of an idea, the people involved, the daily grind, and all the ups and downs of ten years of tips and talks. I'll share our best tips, some behind-the-scenes statistics, and maybe even a thing or two that never saw the light of the day!

Join me to learn how to share knowledge, build a brand, and have fun doing it. And remember, if you have something to share, our doors are always open!
