Project 10000 Students
In Satya Nadella 2019 said that over the next 5 years we would create 500m apps we both really believe that citizen developers hold the key to us becoming a reality and helping us to be truly productive. During 2020 I put together a free course for citizen developers to learn about how to build Canvas Power Apps. I really only set out with the objective of creating the course that I would have wanted when I first started, and here we are 239 lessons later and I need your help.
There are over 1000 people signed up for the course, and if it’s worth 1 person signing up, then it’s worth 10,000 people doing the same. So that’s the target – I’d like us to get to 10,000 students by March 2021 and the reason is that this will mean we can put together really engaging live events with great speakers from all around the world, but just as importantly provide a platform for people that have never spoken before to share what they have been doing.
The curriculum is wide, and aim to take people from beginner, right up to expert, but probably not quite so far as consultant level as for that you need to practice, practice, practice 😃.
I had a bit of fun with Power BI, so this is where we are right now – on the left hand side, without the target, and on the right with the target – it’s not live, so will only get updated periodically.
For those of you that are into video content (like me 😁) then here’s a little intro to the course.

Good luck, and see you in the course!
