What is it

The Power Platform has a rapid release cadence and with that come the new features, new developments, and new challenges. In case you were not paying attention, the waves are coming every 6 months. This is your chance to get your hands on the new technologies and learn the new stuff before anyone else. Hear the news from the latest conferences and what does it mean for Business Application Developers.

Y’all busy people so in 2020 2021 💉💉 2022 we’re hoping to be back!

Who’s behind it

BAD Masterclass is a brainchild of yours truly, George Doubinski, co-founder of CRM Tip of the Day and CRM.Audio and David Yack, developer and trainer extraordinaire, and author of

SAD Workshop is the creation of Joel Lindstrom, co-founder of CRM Tip of the Day and CRM.Audio

MAD Workshop was co-created with Julie Yack (yes, that  Julie Yack – trainer, author, mentor, learner, problem-solver and globetrotter).

What’s in it for me

Are you BAD?

Unlike any of the courses and trainings you find, it’s not about what you can do in Power Platform / Dynamics 365 world today, it’s about what will you use tomorrow. Aimed at proficient developers at the level 300-400, it covers new and upcoming technologies, trends, and best practices you need to create Business Applications for the future. It is delivered as a mix of presentations, talks, discussions, hands-on exercises, and developer challenges, all packed within 1 or 2 days of in-class learning.

This class is for all you experienced Power Platform/Dynamics 365/CRM developers who want to take your skills to the next level.

Are you SAD?

Are you a system administrator, whether by choice or by accident, and not sure how to deal with bazillions of options now available? Have to navigate between admin portals, monitor everything under the sun, and curb enthusiasm of citizen developers at the same time?

Just in one day you’ll learn how to keep all your Power Platform/Dynamics 365/CRM environments, developers, and users under control. No more sad administrators!

Are you MAD?

We’ve been repeatedly asked not to let developers have all the fun. We listened. Introducing Managing Application Developers (MAD) Workshop.

Managing your business application developer team doesn’t have to be difficult. In this half-day workshop we’ll discuss communication strategy, common misunderstandings between business and technical teams and learn about leading your team with a good application lifecycle plan.

Some of the planned discussion topics:

  • Can you fire all developers now?
  • What are your developers not telling you?
  • Make peace between developers and citizens

MAD Workshop runs in parallel with BAD Masterclass and is designed for team leaders, project managers, CTOs, CEOs, and all other people who are actually responsible for the teams, technology, and, ultimately, projects success.

While your developers are learning BAD, discover how to make the full use of that knowledge.

    Is there a plan for new Masterclasses in 2019?
    These classes seem the way to go to be future proof and finetune our current methods.
