Whats the Virtual Power Group
In this episode Mark and Iain are ambushed by members of the Virtual Power Group (VPG) of Scotland to discuss what led them to set up an online community for people who live or work in Scotland that have a shared interest in Microsoft Business Applications (e.g. Power Platform, Microsoft Dynamics). The group is open to all levels of experience and hopes to provide an entry point for those that are starting out on their career, as well as a discussion forum for more experienced members to understand the latest technology and industry trends.   The conversation includes a discussion on the current state of the Scottish market, how the group will use this exciting new forum to highlight career opportunities across Scotland, and offer night classes to those that are just starting out. Future discussion topics for the group will also include non-technical aspects such as the soft skills required to succeed in business.   The next meeting of the Virtual Power Group is on 28th April 2020. If you have an interest in building the Microsoft Business Applications community in Scotland, then please visit the following link for further information:
