The Citizen Developer’s Pro Code Guide to Productivity, with Scott Hanselman

The Citizen Developer’s Pro Code Guide to Productivity (In-person)

The Portland Power Platform and Fabric User Groups are joining forces for a special in-person meetup and networking session, with special guest Scott Hanselman!

Join us at the Key Bank Club at Providence Park for an evening of networking, presentations, and more in partnership with the Portland Timbers, and SkyPoint Cloud!

A majority of citizen developers have self-learned or hacked their way into a dev role with little formal training on developer productivity.

This presentation aims to introduce citizen developers to PowerToys, a set of tools that can enhance productivity and efficiency for citizen developers.

Scott will also demonstrate the use of Copilot and ChatGPT, AI-powered tools that can assist with coding tasks. Furthermore, the importance of developing soft skills such as effective communication, teamwork, and time management will be discussed.

Additional productivity tips and tools will also be covered, with real-life examples of how to apply them in various coding scenarios.

Finally, there will be a Q&A session for attendees to ask questions and seek clarifications. We look forward to hosting you at this special in-person event hosted by the Timbers and Thorns in Providence Park at the Key Bank Club.

  • 5-6pm: Networking
  • 6-6:45pm: Presentation by Scott Hanselman
  • 6:45-7pm: Q&A
  • 7-8pm: Networking
