Power Platform Blog and Twitter Cheat Sheet

Updated: Jan 26

Hey all,


How’s it going?

Jon Russell


I recently started a Twitter thread where I listed some people in the Power Platform community that I regularly go to for tips, tricks, help and knowledge around the Power Platform and Dynamics.

Paul Murana suggested that I write a blog post that covers these people. Obviously this is not going to be an extensive list by any means, so if you have anymore for the list please either comment on this post or send me a DM on Twitter and I will update it. I will be coming back to this post again and again over the next few months as I find more blogs and YouTube channels. So consider this an ongoing project.


I’m also only putting people on the list who have a YouTube channel and/or blog/website.


Do you know of a blog that should be on this list, let me know by filling in this form here.


 

The List

Here goes.


Mike Gowland


The grand master of all things crab. The king of crustaceans. The master of mathematical Power Automate problems. He puts the JS in JavaScript. All round legend and co-presenter of the infamous Sprint Zero Podcast.




Craig White






Craig is a legend, pure and simple. His blog is class. I love how he writes about the Power Platform and comes at it with real world examples.



Matthew Devaney




Matthew‘s blog posts are deep and engaging. They are structured in a way that are amazingly easy to follow and that variety is staggering.

Paul Murana





If you want to know how to get around premium connectors in Power Automate, then this is the resource you need. More tech than you can shake a stick at. All round nice guy, one of the few people on this list I have met in person. You know lockdown and all that jazz.

Aaron Gumbs





An all-round Power Platform whizz kid. Don’t worry, he’ll find the kid reference funny. He was born in like 1999 or something silly. What this guy knows is staggering. Having been involved in Dynamics since the Big Bang and now firmly cemented into the Power Platform. There is not much this guy doesn’t know. He also knows how to “tell a story”.

Dennis (Expiscornovus)





Graph API ✅ completed it mate. Power Virtual Agents ✅ got the t-shirt


His blog posts are informative, interesting and I have learnt a lot from this guy. You will too.

Sancho Harker





Power Apps changed his life. I feel ya! Me too. His blog covers a lot and all the major components of the Power Platform, Dataverse, SharePoint. Go and check him out!

Jon Levesque



Well, if you are involved in the Power Platform or just looking to get started. This guy is the Daddy! He knows pretty much every MVP in this space through the amazing videos he has on his YouTube channel. I got into the Power Platform, which led to a job in it, through his YouTube channel.


A true legend.

Elaiza Benitez




The Power Platform contingent from New Zealand (others are available). Elaiza’s YouTube content is great. I suggest checking that out and subscribing.

Franco Musso




This is the go to guy for all things Power Apps portal related. He’s helped me out more than once, good bants in the Twitter sphere too!


Flow Joe




Joe Unwin knows a thing or two about Flow (yeah, I know Power Automate, but we both got caught out on the name change). His blog posts give you a step-by-step guide for every level from functions and expressions to deeper topics such as Azure VM automation.


Roma Gupta




That Techie Girl lives up to her name by producing great Dynamics and Power Platform content on her blog. With topics ranging from Power Apps canvas app forms to deeper parts of Power Automate. One to follow for sure.

Sharon Summer




Sharon leads the Cambridge (UK) Power Platform user group. A regular on the speaking circuit. Community at its finest!


Brian Knight




Do you want to learn about Power Apps portals? Then check Brian out. He has a Portal series which goes through each step of provisioning and configuring a Portal. Brilliant!


EY Kalman




AKA The CRM Ninja. This guy knows a thing or two about Dynamics. He's my go to resource for all things Omnichannel related as well as how to pass Microsoft Certifications. He also does a video podcast, where he interviews people in the Power Platform and Dynamics community




Recommendations from others

In this section I will also list out other blogs/Twitter accounts that have been highlighted to me, again not an exhaustive list as there is so much out there. But hopefully I will give you a starter place depending on which part of the Power Platform or Dynamics you want to find out more about:

Hopefully, my way of explaining things can help people no matter their level of understanding.”

April knows a lot and shares this on her YouTube channel and blog. If you are just getting into the Power Platform, this channel is a wonderful place to start, develop and be curious.

Heavily focused (though not entirely) on Power Automate, with occasional additions of Dynamics, C#, and Blazor.

That’s it for now

I’ll be adding to this as I go and as I find out more Power Platform / Dynamics content. As I said at the start this is not an exhaustive list. There are a lot of Power Platform blogs out there, be curious, search it out and good luck on your journey.


Do you know of a blog that should be on this list, let me know by filling in this form here.
