A Free bootcamp that afforded about 300 participants the opportunity to learn more about the Microsoft Power Platform was held at the Accra Technical University (ATU) last Saturday.
The Microsoft Power Platform is a suite of tools designed to help businesses and organisations automate processes, analyse data, and create custom applications. It includes Power Apps, Power BI, Power Automate, and Power Virtual Agents.
The bootcamp was hosted by the ATU Library in collaboration with the Accra Power Platform User Group, a group with an agenda to promote, teach and enable all skill levels to use the Microsoft Power Platform to grow and transform businesses and organisations.
Dr NanaYaw Asabere, Director of Research, Innovation, Publication and Technology Transfer (DRIPTT), ATU, in a keynote address, noted that ATU was mandated to provide hands-on practical education through impact-oriented research involving Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Entrepreneurship.
Dr Asabere, therefore, encouraged students to take advantage of the bootcamp and explore the Microsoft Power Platform to discover how it could help them achieve their goals.
Organiser, Accra Power Platform User Group, Samuel Adranyi, said the bootcamp, which is a global event scheduled for February every year, was to give participants hands-on experience to prepare them for the job market.
