Thanks Shane & Matt! Great discussion. I am not a full-time PowerApps maker, but as a consultant and career professional developer, a majority of my recent clients want a solution and insist on it being a PowerApp/Power Platform solution. While I don’t always agree that PA/PP is the best approach, the client is “always right.” Your insight into the current and future PowerApps landscape is very interesting and valuable as I architect out these solutions. Keep up the good work!

You two, along with Reza have taught me so much about Power Apps this past 5 years. I’ve gone from being a complete novice to providing consultancy services to some of New Zealand’s biggest companies.

Great to listen to your chat. Thanks, Dean, New Zealand. Also, cats and dogs are both awesome (I have both).

Hey Matthew! Your blog has been instrumental to helping me learn power apps, as well as your character in providing free and accessible content for people to learn.

I do have a topic of interest that I thought you would do great at explaining. That being, Solution layering and ALM best practices.

All the best from Yukon, Canada,
