Getting Started with Power Portals
You can empower anyone—either inside or outside your organization—to interact with Common Data Service (DataFlex) data using portals. WARNING, these portals are not your typical Content Management System, and getting started can be extremely time consuming and confusing. This course will save you days and perhaps weeks of poking around the platform trying to implement a solution. In just a few hours, I can show you what you need to know to get started with Power Portals TODAY!
Citizen Developers of Low-Code / No-Code
Citizen Developers of Low-Code / No-Code are NOT developers, but they can greatly benefit from knowing key development aspects. This FREE course will get you started on the Low-Code / No-Code path with a solid understanding of development constructs without knowing how to write a single line of code.
Even if you want to get into development, this is a great FREE course to check out because you will need to know these basic constructs that are a part of any programming language. Understanding these main constructs will fast-track your learning when you do decide what language, to begin with.
Host websites for (Dev/Test/Prod)
Times have changed; people and companies are now putting everything online. Money is also of concern. Millions are out of work! What if you could learn to convert your home or small office pc into a REAL web & database server, pay no money, and only pay for just the domain name every year? Imagine how much money you could save on hosting one or more websites this way? Great for working with clients, testing new development, or just hosting the end final product, even a WordPress site. Convenience is the real benefit as everything is local, save time constantly from uploading your website again and again with each change. Everything is local!

Who Am I?
ArchitectPersonality – INTJ-A / INTJ-T
It can be lonely at the top. Being one of the rarest personality types and being among the most capable people, Architects know this all too well. They make up just two percent of the population, and women with this personality type are especially rare, forming only 0.8%. It can be difficult for Architects to find people who can keep up with their non-stop analysis of things. People with this personality type are imaginative yet decisive… ambitious yet like their privacy… curious about everything but remain focused.
