What do people like you say about this course?
James says: "Another awesome course from Philip. This course goes though all the major topics on the PL-100 exam in great detail and step-by-step, I followed along on my own trial tenant which I highly recommend. Take your time and go through it all!"
Will says: "This whole series has been fantastic; the best I have seen on this topic!"
Nikhil says: "Awesome course for PL100 Exam preparation. Updated: After completing the course I got the confidence to go ahead and attempt the exam. I m proud to announce that I passed on first attempt."
Stephen says: "I didn't even know what I didn't know until I took your course. You dragged me through topics I never knew I needed. The exposure helped me to guess correctly on the test (the second time). Your course was the most thorough coverage I could have received. Your coverage was so extensive, that I have to go back and review segments. It says 16 hours--but I'm sure I spend over 120 hours on the material. Part of the time I tried to duplicate your magic. Again, Thanks 6 stars."
This course teaches the requirements for the Microsoft Certificate PL-100 "Power Platform App Maker Associate", and focuses on the various apps which make up the Power Platform, together with how they can be used by other programs, apps and services.
We'll start off by looking at canvas Power Apps. We'll get a free Developer edition and/or free trial of Power Apps, and get some sample data using the Dataverse (previously known as the Common Data Service). We'll then create a canvas Power App through a template and then, starting from scratch, we will replicate it and expand the functionality. This also includes creating a new table in the Dataverse. We will also look at Global and Context variables, components and collections.
We'll then look at model-driven Power Apps using the Dataverse. We'll look at the constituent parts of a model-driven Power Apps: site maps, forms, views, charts and dashboards. We'll also restrict the type of data which can be inserted into our Dataverse by using business rules.
Next up is Power Automate. Using our free Developer edition or the paid-for version, we'll create several automated flows, and the different triggers and actions you can use. We'll look at various triggers and actions, together with looking how we can enter data in sections using the business process flows.
We'll then go back to the Power Platform more generally, looking at solutions, security, and importing and exporting data.
We'll start off with looking at Power BI. If you have a PC, we'll look at the Power BI Service (available through any modern web browser), creating reports and dashboards, and sharing dashboards. We'll also look at adding existing Power BI tiles or dashboards into our model-driven and canvas Power Apps.
We will have a brief look at the AI Builder, and models such as the business card reader, object detection model, form processing model and prediction model. We'll then look at practical examples of using models inside Power Apps and Power Automate.
We'll finish off by looking at Microsoft Teams and other topics, such as exporting solutions, testing, accessibility and field and data security.
No prior knowledge is required - we'll even see how to get a free Power Platform trial!
There are regular quizzes to help you remember the information, so you can be sure that you are learning.
Once you have completed this course, you will have a good knowledge of how to make Power Apps and Power Automate flows, together with how to use them in Microsoft Teams. And with some practice, you could even go for the official Microsoft certification PL-100 - wouldn't that look good on your CV or resume? And if you are an American college student, you might even get college credit for passing that exam.
So, without any further ado, let's have a look at how you can use Udemy interface, and then we'll have a look at the objectives for the exam and therefore the syllabus for this course.
Who this course is for:
- This course is for you if you want to create Power Platform apps, flows and other solutions.
- You could use this to simplify and automate tasks and processes.
- By the end of this course, after entering the official Practice Tests, you could enter (and hopefully pass) Microsoft's official PL-100 exam.
- Wouldn't the "Microsoft Certified: Power Platform App Maker Associate" certification look good on your CV or resume?
