Power Platform Saturday Oslo 24th August

This Saturday was the day of the fantastic event Power Platform Saturday Oslo and what a great lineup of speakers and attendees!


The mind that created the event, Marius Agur Lind kicked the keynote of by presenting the theme of the day, which was equal opportunity. He gave us several examples of what equal opportunity isn’t and what we should think of in our every day life. Equal opportunity is giving absolutely everyone the same chance no matter gender, religion or anything else, we are all the same, we are all people!

The charismatic Sarah Critchley continued the keynote, and got people of their feet and pledging to be inclusive with everyone they met and to take their seat at the table, you can’t wait for someone to give you equal opportunity, you have to reach for it and take it for yourself and be willing to giving it to others!

Make the system politically correct with profanity control and Flow! – Gustaf Westerlund

Gustaf Westerlund held the funniest session of the day; “Make the system politically correct with profanity control and Flow!”. He told us how he used Forms Pro and the content moderator on reviews from customers before it was posted online, to make sure there where no profanity in the post. He set up a connection in Flow, and gave a demo of how it actually worked in CRM, with notes and the content moderator. Needless to say, there was a lot of profanity in the session!

If you have never seen the Azure content moderator you should look at it!
