He not only has a deep understanding of the framework and business domain but also has built some of the best professional PCF experiences that exist. He is a natural teacher who loves to help others via community forums, blogs and seminars. I can't think of anyone who is better suited than Scott for this training. Enjoy !"

Learn PCF Fundementals

This course will show you both how & why the PCF works the way it does. You will learn how to create, build and test a PCF control using the Power Apps CLI, then take a peek under the covers to see the modules and configurations used. You'll learn how PCF controls work at runtime and the important design decisions you need to make in order to make your controls flexible and supported. 

Build Advanced User Interfaces

Learn how to create sophisticated user interfaces that are maintainable and supported. Manage state inside your PCF controls using React and mobx. Add drag and drop functionality. Create engaging user experiences on both forms and views in Model Driven Apps. Use the Fluent UI so that users will think that your controls are part of the native Power Apps experience.

Unit Tests and AzureDevOps

Manage your entire Application Lifecycle in AzureDevOps with both code and solution metadata being under version control. Manage parallel branches using pull requests. Write unit tests using jest and then run inside your AzureDevOps pipelines to automatically collect code coverage, and solution checker results before deploying to multiple environments.


If you are extending Dynamics 365 Model Driven Apps or want to create custom user interfaces on top of Power Apps, this course is for you. You will cover the fundamentals of the PCF but the course does assume some knowledge of configuring CDS, using Visual Studio/VSCode, writing JavaScript with some HTML and CSS experience. You will be creating rich unbounded user experiences like never before!
Note: This course was recorded in 2020 and whilst still relevant, there have been some updates to the platform since then.

Every Power Platform developer should take this

I have been working with Xrm since 4.0, 15 years. Backend/fronted Developer. This course finally got me to switch to the PCF model instead of Webresources. It’s the future and this course was the most exhaustive and detailed I’ve ever seen in our space. I’m a heavy UI developer and implemented very complex frameworks before.

Developing Model-Driven Apps in itself is no rocket science, but there are a few things where the documentation just isn't enough and needs some more explanations. That's where Scott Durow's courses come in. Scott has a very firm grasp on how everything ties in together, has a very deep technical knowledge of so many areas and is able to transfer that knowledge. It is not the kind of course that you just cruise through the videos and that you never return once completed. You will have to rewatch the videos and practice to master what you're learning. Thanks Scott for this course, I hope you create more like it in the future. Cheers!

Excellent start

The course is very useful to start with PCF but also with all the technologies you will have to get familiar with to be able to write software of good quality. You will have to invest a considerable amount of time learning all these frameworks and patterns, but it is absolutely worth it :)

Empower your Dynamics development team to achieve more

What a fantastic resource and the perfect way to empower your Dynamics development team to achieve much much more with the Microsoft Power Platform. We valued this course as the perfect way to get our Dynamics developers quickly up to speed with the next generation of development capabilities for Dynamics 365. Not only did this step by step guide provide them with a quick onboarding of how, it also provided us as a business with valuable insight into what is now possible with PCF. Great course, thanks Scott.
