Hi there,

I am Rick Bakker from the Netherlands.

My first encounter with the Microsoft Power Platform, or PowerApps, Power BI and Flows as it was called in those days, was in 2016. My first professional experience dates from 2017. In 2018, I started to write blog posts and in 2019 I started to create videos too. I have also been fortunate to speak at a few events.

In 2023, I received the Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) in the category “Business Applications” for the fourth consecutive time.

I am very enthusiastic about the Microsoft Power Platform and proud founding father of:

  • PACo: A collection of many canvas components to create functional and good-looking canvas apps in less time.
  • Power Library: A collection of content pages useful for creating business solutions with the Microsoft Power Platform.
  • Power Process: A generic and detailed model to automate processes using the Microsoft Power Platform.
  • SPOT: A set of tools created with the Microsoft Power Platform for objects in SharePoint Online.
