Who am I?

My name is Pieter Veenstra and I’ve been writing blog posts on SharePains for about 10 years now. It all started with posts about Microsoft SharePoint and over time I started to cover more and more Microsoft technology.

I work as a Microsoft Productivity Principal consultant at Microsoft Gold partner, HybrIT Services in the United Kingdom helping my clients make better use of the Microsoft cloud technology.

What I do?

If you need help with Power Automate, SharePoint, Power Apps, Microsoft Teams, Dynamics 365 or Azure you are on the right site!

Have a look at the many posts that can be found on this site. Just some examples:

I’m also one of the two founding members of PowerApps4Kids. Do you want to know what that is all about then have a look at and be amazed at how kids can build their own Power Apps!

It is never to early to learn something new and if you are one of the older kids then its never to late either.

I just wanted to say this is the best, most comprehensive resource on Power Automate I have found, and that includes the MS Support and Documentation pages.The breakdowns of sections/subposts are logical and the screenshots/walkthroughs are incredibly useful. I just wanted to give you a big thumbs up and say thank you – THANKS!
