Key Takeaways

  • MVP overview: As Christian began one of his earlier architect positions, he was searching for content on community forums. From there, he started creating his own content, but noticed that his local community – based in Ecuador – was lacking content in their native language. He combined his passion for community and creating Power Apps content into one and started delivering his tutorials and how-to’s in Spanish. Based on the great work he provided to the community, he was nominated for an MVP award.
  • Areas of expertise: Christian’s expertise lies in the Power Platform, where his work has been focused over the last seven years as a solution architect. He decided to focus specifically on automation and automating solutions to help companies streamline their processes.
  • Toughest project: As it relates to one of his toughest projects, Christian reflects on a project he worked on with an Australian company. The project involved migrating the client’s ERP system to Dynamics 365, and he had to consider how to manage subscriptions, payments, invoices, and plan changes. It required custom flows and web resources to develop the proper integrations but was a successful migration, which he attributed to a passionate and collaborative team effort.
  • Summit NA session: Christian will be leading a session at Community Summit NA 2024 on RPA unattended flows. Attendees can expect to learn about the top tips for RPA flow strategy, adoption, and implementation.
