Announcing the CIAOPS Patron Power Platform community

I am pleased to announce the new CIAOPS Patron Power Platform Community (3PC). The growing need for applications in modern businesses and the increasing functionality provided by the Microsoft Power Platform has created a need for skilled professionals. It is the aim of the CIAOPS Patron Power Platform Community to provide somewhere that people interested in solving business challenges with the Microsoft Power Platform can come together, share learn and grown their knowledge.

One of the things that makes the CIAOPS Patron Power Platform Community unique will be it’s focus on providing solution for small businesses. There are lots of resources available for larger businesses but we wanted to bring a similar set of resources plus more for smaller businesses. This community is also not solely focused on technology, it is designed as place to solve business challenges with technology, specially, with the Microsoft Power Platform. This means you don’t need to be a developer, and IT administrator or even have any experience with the Microsoft Power Platform to join. You just need to want to learn more about the Microsoft Power Platform and how it can be harnesses inside a business to improve productivity.

Another major difference with the CIAOPS Patron Power Platform Community is the desire to ensure that is an active community. This means that there is an expectation that to invest at least one hour a week in the community forums, attending events and contributing to group projects. We also encourage all member to obtain at least one Microsoft Power Platform certification (the PL-900 certification being the recommended starting point) within 6 months of joining. the community is full of all the resources you’ll need to pass these exams and there are members who are more than willing to help mentor you through your certification journey.

We want the CIAOPS Patron Power Platform Community to be a place where people can contribute to group projects that aim to build solutions such as the

Power Automate Drink Ordering System

Projects like these are the best way to learn about the Microsoft Power Platform as well as learn from those more experienced. We also love it when people bring a project they wish to develop with the help of the community. The more projects we work on the more we all learn.

We have big plans for the CIAOPS Patron Power Platform Community and we are just getting started. As such are offering a never to be repeated foundation membership of A$15 per month to be part of what we think will become much bigger in the not to distant future. Now is therefore the time to jump on board at this specially discounted rate and enjoy the benefits of membership for life! You’ll find the links to sign up here:

scroll down the page until you see the Power Platform option.

We are super excited to launch this community publicly and we hope that you can join us on this journey with the Microsoft Power Platform.

I am please to announce the inaugural product release from the CIAOPS Patron Power Platform Community:

Power Automate Drink Ordering System

This is a PDF document that takes your step by step through creating an automated process for bulk ordering of drinks. This solution was developed to solve the challenge or ordering many drinks at events, however it could be used for much more mundane things such as preparing complimentary drinks when guests attend a business.

This project can also be seen as a great way to start learning the Microsoft Power Platform by creating a real world process using Power Automate (Microsoft Flow). The information provided run to over 130 pages and includes screen shots and easy to follow instructions.

To celebrate the release of this inaugural product, it is being offered at a special 75% discount which you can take advantage of here:
