As we start planning and getting ready for #GPPB2021, I look back at 2019 on how #GlobalPowerPlatformBootcamp got started. I started discussing the idea for a global event with Dhina Gajavarathan, Colin Vermander in June 2019 but it truly started taking shape and momentum in October 2019 after I and Kent Weare started planning logistics.
what followed was series for meetings, discussion brainstorming with Power Platform enthusiasts, Microsoft MVPs, #PowerAddict, and Microsoft. We had tremendous help and because of which we were able to go from drawing board to execution in 4 months!!
The first edition for #GlobalPowerPlatformBootcamp happened on 15th February 2020 and it was nothing less than a festival happening across the globe. Power Platform enthusiasts across the Globe connected for one day to learn, share, and connect. A true Global Event: Organized Globally, Hosted Locally!
In this full-day boot camp attendees got to deep dive into Microsoft’s Power Platform stack with hands-on sessions and labs, delivered by Microsoft MVPs, RDs, and local expert community leaders. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone involved.
