    Yawer Iqbal: Accessibility in Power App projects




    Mike Ochs: Streamlining Implementations with Virtual Entities




    Roundtable Discussion

    Session Descriptions:
    You can follow Yawer on LinkedIn or Twitter. Here are the details for his session:
    ​​Accessibility in PowerApp projects
    Accessibility for people with special needs is an essential consideration for the public sector and enterprise projects. Learn what accessibility is and why it is crucial. I will share my experience and learning while making d365 projects accessibility compliance. "Accessibility" is not just for people working with UI; instead, it is relevant to consultants, developers, testers and others. This session aims to give an overview of what needs to be done to make a D365 project accessibility compliance.

    You can also follow Mike on LinkedIn or Twitter. Here is what he will be talking about:
    Streamlining Implementations with Virtual Entities
    The cost of storage and API calls in Power Apps and Dynamics 365 can be a concern for many organizations. The good news is there are ways to reduce your cost for storage and for integrations by leveraging Virtual Entities. In this session we'll take a look at building a custom data provider that connects to Azure SQL and eliminates the need to push certain kinds of data out of your Azure hosted or on-prem databases and into the potentially more costly DataFlex (formerly CDS) storage for your Model Driven App to consume.

    We look forward to seeing you there!
