Staying updated on what is happening in the technology sector is important to your career and your personal life but ads can make reading news, distracting. With Thurrott Premium, you can enjoy the best coverage in tech without the annoying ads.

We’ve started a new, twice-monthly interview show on Petri.com that will cover topics of interest to our tech-professional audience. We are calling this show “MJFChat.”

I — Mary Jo Foley, Petri’s Community Magnate — will be interviewing a variety of IT-savvy folks. Some of these will be Petri contributors; some will be tech-company employees; some will be IT pros. We will be tackling various subject areas in the form of 30-minute audio interviews. I will be asking the questions, the bulk of which we’re hoping will come from you, our Petri.com community of readers.

We will ask for questions a week ahead of each chat. Readers can post their suggested questions in the designated “MJFChat” area in our Petri.com forums. Once the interviews are completed — and hopefully on the same day the interview is done — we will post the audio and associated transcript in the forums for readers to digest at their leisure.

Our next MJFChat, scheduled for Monday, April 15, is between me and Steve Mordue, CEO of Forceworks Global and a Microsoft Business Applications Most Valuable Professional (MVP). The general topic of our chat is Microsoft’s Power Platform. Make sure to submit your best questions before next Monday morning here in the forums.

For the past few years, Microsoft has been developing and rolling out pieces of what it now calls its “Power Platform” in relative isolation. Power BI, its business analytics platform; Flow, its workflow-automation engine; and PowerApps, its associated app-development platform — together known as the Power Platform — has been mostly the domain of Dynamics 365 users. But this is changing.

The Power Platform is a fundamental pivot for Microsoft business apps. It facilitates taking developer-centric tasks, and moving them into the hands of “Citizen Developers”. It a low-code/no-code story. And there’s no one better than Steve to talk about what this means to IT pros and non-traditional app builders.

If you know someone you’d like to see interviewed on the MJFChat show, including yourself, send me a note at [email protected] (Let me know why you think this person would be an awesome guest and what topics you’d like to see covered.) We’ll take things from there….

Thanks!

    This looks really interesting. I regularly attend and speak at the Power Platform World Tours and Power Apps is exploding!

    Very timely chat.

    Yes! I agree that the PP is just beginning to show it's full potential. It's the main reason I decided to stay with Microsoft as a consultant and not continue with Salesforce.com, it's the potential of the PP and all around it.
