In just under 2 months (May 9-13, 2022), I have the opportunity to present several sessions the the Microsoft 365 EduCon Conference. I’m really excited to join this conference as we move back to more in-person events. As I have stated many times, I think the real value in conferences is networking at all levels: Business Partners, Speakers, Vendors, as well as fellow professionals and enthusiasts. Content is awesome, but meeting people that you can contact after the conference is key to advancing your skills and professional development. Bring your business cards and collect as many as you can for your future.
Additionally, 365 EduCon has partnered with PWR EduCon to add more Power Platform content. This should be a great event and I hope to see many of you there. Here are my sessions:

Breakout session (PWR303) - Take your Lists to the next level
Fri, 13 May 2022 @ 12:30 local
Modern lists in SharePoint have seen a complete overhaul. While the Lists app in Office 365 is new addition, it uses the same modern SharePoint lists as Office 365.
These lists have a lot of customization available natively, but the real power comes from custom list formatting. We’ll start with some simple tips and them level up to making list views one of the most powerful no-code solutions in your toolbelt.
