Hi! My name is Diana Birkelbach and I’m a developer, working at ORBIS AG . Together with the team we develop generic components and accelerators for Dynamics 365 and Power Platform.
One of the biggest accomplishments are the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Award (MVP) in Business Applications for 2021.
You can also find me in the Power Platform Community Forum, where I’m part of the Power Platform Community Super User Program (Appstronaut)
I developed for Dynamics 365 from the beginning, starting with the version 1.1 (back then Microsoft CRM). In that old days we had to use triggers on the SQL (since there were no PlugIns, or Callouts as they were called in CRM 3) and starting with CRM 3.0 I worked to our first generic Editable Grid. In CRM 4.0 times I made a new generic and this time pure HTML-based Editable Grid, together with a Core-Library for working with the Dynamics 365. I think it was that time when I started to become “Miss Metadata”, since I tried to work around the performance Issues with Metadata as came up with several solutions for caching it for the client script.
I’ve got to know a little about the Power Platform in Spring 2019, and as soon the PowerApps Component Framework (PCF) preview was released, it become my new love. Since then I try to get it to know better, write blogs to help others to understand it. When I have some time , I try to make some open-source PCFs.
