Power Platform Dev Weekly #162
The one after MVP Summit...
Welcome to the Power Platform Dev Weekly!
‘Tis the week after MVP Summit and with so much going on last week, the amount of blogs and content is a little lower than usual as so many of your favourite producers travelled across the globe to Seattle to learn about what’s new.
With Microsoft Built around the corner, it looks like announcements and feature releases from Microsoft are also slowing down - hopefully, this means we’ll have a new feature-packed Build in 2023!
Microsoft feature releases and announcements
We need to follow more content creators. If you know anyone who writes blogs or creates videos, please fill out the form on their behalf provided on this website so we can start tracking them.
👉 Buy us a coffee! 👈
We hope you enjoy the content of this week.

This weeks editors (Carl & Matt) were both lucky enough to be at the MVP Summit in Seattle and were even luckier to have a trip to the Microsoft Inclusive Tech lab ran by Solomon Romney - and it was truly inspiring. The work Solomon and his team do is honestly awe-inspiring so we wanted to take the time to share with you one of the most powerful videos coming from the lab and we encourage you to have a read on the lab.
