MSDW Podcast: Microsoft's Heather Cook previews Microsoft Power Platform Conference 2023

by MSDW Reporter
Editorial Team,

The Microsoft Power Platform Conference returns for its second edition in October, and Microsoft's Heather Cook, who is an executive producer of the event, joins us to talk about the conference and broader trends in the community. Heather joined Microsoft's Business Applications team in June of 2020 from the Microsoft Teams group, and she tells us about her work since then, from supporting grassroots local groups to large centralized events like MPPC 2023.

MPPC will offer sessions for a range of interest, from technical to professional development to community. Heather tells us how MPPC fits into Microsoft's broader approach to supporting the Power Platform community, how newcomers are getting involved, and what other community plans Microsoft has in the coming months. (MSDW is a media sponsor of MPPC 2023.)
