Introducing the PL-900: Microsoft Power Platform Fundamentals Study Guide
In this episode of The Uptake Podcast, Anna Chu, Paul Warren, and Chris Gill had a raw and honest conversation about being vulnerable and authentic, growing the community, being a mentor, discussing neurodiverse as well as neurotypical folks, navigating the workplace with a “hidden superpower”, and helping children through their life experiences in an effort to foster inclusive communities and growth mindsets.
When users forget to lock their workstations and/or sign out from the Azure portal when finished, this globally established Azure AD directory-level setting automatically signs out the account when a maximum idle time has been reached. There are a number of preset values, or you can utilize a custom value to enforce (in both hours and minutes).
Everyone is talking about COVID-19, and rightfully so. It can be overwhelming to continually hear about it in the news, social networks, phone calls, text messages, and at work. On top of this uncertainty, a TON of the world’s workforce is also being sent home to work remotely and for most people, this is their very first experience with this type of “work” or “WFH” (I have sporadically worked from home, so this week has been the longest stretch for me as well).
In November 2019, I accepted a challenge from two incredible entrepreneurial spirits and friends, Dona Sarkar and Sarah Haggard. After speaking up about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), I was “strongly volunTOLD” that this 40-in-40 challenge would not only help to build my brand and further develop my storytelling abilities, but most importantly, be a great way to give back to the community and raise awareness for mental health and neurodiversity. Now, I truly struggle with the word “disorder”, as each of these so-called disorders give us “abilities” to be successful and have “superpowers” in situations where others may struggle. This challenge would give a rare opportunity to try and educate/change the mindset for folks, as well as increase self-awareness for readers on the journey.
Announced in late October 2019 as Message Center posts MC193609 and MC196205, any user in the organization can purchase a self-service license (using their own credit card) for PowerBI Pro service licensing, and would be responsible for managing their own billing information, subscriptions and license assignment.
Ah, the last blog entry for 2019. I’m writing this while sitting and enjoying some…
Behind door #9 of the Azure Advent Calendar we have Azure Sentinel, Microsoft’s new cloud-native Security Information Event Management (SIEM) and Security Orchestration Automated Response (SOAR) scalable solution. There are a lot of nooks and crannies in this solution, so we will cover initial onboarding, how to use the tool, and how to expand the tool for some more advanced features (with some other Christmas gifts as well)!
Roughly one year ago, Microsoft released the Cloud Adoption Framework (or CAF) for Azure to provide guidance via best practices, tools, documentation, security, governance, planning, migration, and the like.
2019 marked the fifth straight year of attending the famed #MSIgnite conference, once again in…

What better than to have started blogging about my exam preparation notes that with this perfectly representative AZ-500: Microsoft Azure Security Engineer Associate exam from Microsoft! I had taken this when it was in Beta format and narrowly failed the exam, arguably because I hadn’t prepared one bit for the concepts being evaluated. Sure, you *could* rely on roughly 10 years of Azure experience, but as this technology changes daily, I highly recommend preparing fully for this expansive exam!
