Boston Code Camp 2017 Re-cap

I had a really great time presenting “Connecting Salesforce & Office 365 using Microsoft PowerApps & Flow”. For once the demo gods were kind to me as a I demonstrated creating leads from an Excel document, and generating Salesforce Tasks that get created in a SharePoint list, etc.

For those looking for slides Рyou can grab them here: Microsoft Flow O365 Salesforce

I also had a really great time joining some of my fellow Microsoft MVP’s on Betsy Weber’s panel for “How to become an MVP.” All in all a great event – kudos to the organizers, volunteers, speakers, and attendees that made it happen. Hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to present again next year.

Presenting at Boston Code Camp 2017

I’m very excited to be speaking at my very first Code Camp on March 25th at the Microsoft Sales & Technology Center in Burlington. My session is titled:¬†Connecting Salesforce.com & Office 365 using Microsoft Flow & PowerApps¬†which hopefully is pretty straightforward for what I plan on covering. I am a huge fan of Microsoft Flow and am very excited to have the opportunity to “spread the gospel” of some of the amazing possibilities with this service.

I have always been a little hesitant to speak at Code Camp since I self-identify as being somewhere between a no-code developer and an actual developer. Most of the presenters are hardcore developers and I would be afraid of putting my audience off by not spending my session in Visual Studio. However, I am hoping my topic will resonate with attendees as I’m starting to see lots of organizations move towards Office 365 and there’s a mix of Salesforce.com & Dynamics 365 from a CRM perspective. I am also seeing a surge in data orchestration tools such as IFTT, Microsoft Flow, Zapier, etc. which is a good conversation to have especially when it comes to integrating with custom LOB applications which will require RESTFUL interfaces to enable these tools.

So here’s to an awesome event, and check out the website for more details!
