Pluralsight Course: Power Platform Administration Foundation

As we are still adjusting to remote work, it has allowed me to uncover some extra time to record a Power Platform Administration Foundation Pluralsight course to complement the “dev side” course released in 2018, Low-Code Development with Power Apps.

This course is designed for developers–both citizen and professional–interested in a low-code approach for building mobile applications. In this course, I used aspects of Azure PowerShell/CLI in demonstrating Power Platform management as I see a commonality between PowerApps and Azure Administration.

You can find the Pluralsight course here.

My daughter drew the following sketch to captures the principal motivation for why I created this course, which was to help the Power Platform admins attain equilibrium. Today, the balance seems to be tilting towards the citizen developers, making IT departments uncomfortable with moving forward with the Microsoft Power Platform adoption.

The  Power Platform Adoption Framework created by Andrew Welch and the team speaks to the “adoption at scale” theme and an approach to enterprise management and governance that resonates with customers and puts IT and security departments at ease.

This course is about teaching admins the basic skills needed to effectively administer the Power Platform. My hope is that making the Power Platform admin tools somewhat match that of Azure, acceptance of the platform may be a bit easier.
