PL400 Microsoft Power Platform Developer

What you’ll learn

Extend the user experience, creating JavaScript code which runs when a model-driven app is opened, a button is clicked, and as part of a code component.
Extend the platform, creating plug-ins, custom connectors and platform APIs
Develop Integrations, publishing and consume Dataverse events, implementing data synchronization, and processing workloads
Validate requirements and design technical architecture, implement Application Lifecycle Management, and implement error checking
Download for free Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, and more.

PL400 Microsoft Power Platform Developer


This course covers the requirements of the PL-400 exam which are not covered in the PL-100 and PL-200 exams.
Therefore, you will already need to have gone through the requirements of the PL-100 and PL-200 exams.
You will need to know how to create canvas and model-driven apps, create flows (including business process flows), and manage solutions.
Some JavaScript/TypeScript and C# knowledge would be useful, but not essential.
Before you begin this course, you should have a computer with access to the internet, and be able to install Windows programs.
You should have the computer requirements to install Visual Studio 2019 for Windows
If you have a Mac computer, then you may need to dual-boot into Windows, or use Parallel Desktop
There is a 30-day refund guarantee of this Udemy course (see Udemy’s refund policy).
Why not have a look at the curriculum below and see what you can learn?


This course is a follow-up course for you, if you have already studied for the PL-100 and PL-200 exams. This course covers the additional content required for the PL-400 certification exam, current as per the PL-400 exam update of 19 September 2022.What do people like you say about this course?Assia says: Very interesting content ! and like always, the explanation way is amazing !This course teaches the requirements for the Microsoft Certificate PL-400 “Power Platform Developer”, and focuses on programming in JavaScript/TypeScript and C# to expand the Power Platform.We’ll start off by looking at extending the user experience. Using Visual Studio Code, we will create some JavaScript code that will run when our model-driven app is opened. We’ll then create some command buttons, along code to run when the user clicks these. We will then concentrate on create code components, replacing existing parts of the model-driven app.We’ll then look at creating a plug-in. The code that we’ll write in Visual Studio will be attached to messages created by Power Platform, allowing our code to run when Dataverse rows are created, updated or deleted. We’ll also look at creating our own custom messages as well.Next up is Custom Connectors. We will create an Azure Function, and find out when it can run. We will then integrate that Function into our Power Platform by creating a custom connector. We’ll also register external endpoints, including in Azure, so that messages can be automatically sent to other apps, reducing the burden on the Power Platform.We’ll finish off by looking at creating a technical design, and any other requirements not covered in previous exams, such as using Test Studio and Monitor, and handling errors.No prior knowledge is required – we’ll even see how to get a free Power Platform trial!There are regular quizzes to help you remember the information, so you can be sure that you are learning.Once you have completed this course, you will have a good knowledge of how to make extend Power Platform using JavaScript and C#. And with some practice, and knowledge gained when studying for the PL-100 and PL-200 exams, you could even go for the official Microsoft certification PL-400 – wouldn’t that look good on your CV or resume? And if you are an American college student, you might even get college credit for passing that exam.So, without any further ado, let’s have a look at how you can use Udemy interface, and then we’ll have a look at the objectives for the exam and therefore the syllabus for this course.
