For collaboration throughout the development of the Peaches Mini Games we use Teams, SharePoint and Microsoft 365 suite.

Posts and communication

We post and communicate through the Teams Channel that we created specifically for this development.


We use the files area (SharePoint Document Library) for file sharing across the team. We have securely stored in one place, always in sync.


We keep track of all bigger notes, for example the graphical profile, color codes and other important details in OneNote.


We create a new private Team for Governance.

We are following the guidance from this amazing Youtube video we found:

SMBPlumbing – Plumbing as a service (PlaaS)!

Backstory: After a life of dangers, princesses and adventures Mario and Luigi returns to their family business: Super Mario Bros Pluming.

Unfortunately, the marked has changed. Simple brick and mortar businesses are no longer cutting it. What we need is something new, what we need is a service, a service with multiple revenue streams… A service with recurring revenue…  What we need is Plumbing as a service (PlaaS)! Its here the Evidi Power Platform Plumbers comes to the rescue!

The plan:

The basic plan is us the Power Platform to offer a subscription service for home and castle owners in need of pluming services. For the low cost of 600 a moth you get access the wealth of services:

Community: “PlumberGuiden”
This is a vibrant community with real human members where the customer can ask and receive answers to basic, and complex, pluming issues.

Plumber ExpertGPT
Offers an instant, AI-driven advice on diagnosing and fixing common plumbing issues, providing step-by-step guidance with an authentic Italian twist.

Asset management
Allows the customer to register properties with vital information like addresses, number of dungeons and lava pits.

Customer upskilling
This is the pinnacle of the solution and allows the customer to level up their pluming skill. Not only will this give them the tools to solve their own plumbing problems. Successful completion will result in expert certification (PL-600) and allows the customer to transform into a Contractor.

Service Request
For complex issues that the customer cannot handle them self (even after consulting PlumberGuiden and Plumber ExpertGPT) they can submit a service request.

The service request will then be routed to the best fit Contractor.

After completion we collect rating and reviews on the Contractor (helping us route service request event better in the future) and generate a invoice to the customer and doing a revenue split between SMBPluming and the Contractor.

For this we claim the badges: Early Delivery, Show And Tell

In the colorful and adventurous Mushroom Kingdom, Princess Peach has been trapped for years in the classic cycle of being kidnapped by the malicious turtle Bowser, only to be rescued by the courageous plumber Mario. However, now, in the exciting year 2024, Princess Peach is starting to feel a bit impatient with being the “damsel in distress.” Instead of waiting for Mario to show up, she has taken destiny into her own hands by embracing the latest technology. Welcome to Mushroom Kingdom 2.0, where Peach has adopted EMPACHMENT – a revolutionary app that provides her with everything a modern princess needs to become independent and break free from the role of Bowser’s eternal captive.

To achieve complete independence in the Mushroom Kingdom, she must learn these skills:

  1. Categorizing what’s good/bad in everything she encounters in the Mushroom Kingdom. Here, we will build a training module based on a database of all Super Mario characters, and an Out of The Box Swipe component that Peach can use to guess. She earns points, and data is stored in Dataverse so she can later review her progress in a Power BI Dashboard.
  2. Resource Management: Peach can check her progress in a Power BI Dashboard.
  3. Problem Solving: Answering general questions from the Mario world and must respond correctly. We use a Chatbot against MarioWiki to both generate and find answers to Mario-related questions.
  4. Exploration: Using navigation and control of what happens with taps and touches on images of Super Mario landscapes, Peach can practice how to navigate through the worlds and choose the right solution to progress. We provide her the opportunity to train in both land, water, castles, etc.
  5. Jumping Skills: JumpSkill is crucial in Mario, using mixed reality components in Power Apps to answer if the distance is safe or not.

Technology that we are using:

The power app Empechment contains several gamified power pages and a Power BI Dashboard.

Sketches of the app

The team has set up camp in the Mushroom Kingdom, surrounded by colorful mushroom fields and giant pipes. Gadgets and costumes adorn the camp, ranging from high-tech Mushroom Communicators to innovative Power-Up Mushrooms. There’s an electric excitement in the air, as if an adventure is about to unfold.

Amidst laughter and smiling mushroom characters, whispers of tales from days of old fill the air. Rumors about an NES from the Stone Age have spread like wildfire, and Mario enthusiasts from all over the Mushroom Kingdom gather to witness the nostalgic treasure. The vintage console has the honor of carrying the timeless Mario games, and nostalgia flourishes among adventurous souls.

Princess Peach, adorned in her latest EMPACHMENT gear, glides through the camp with a smile. The independent princess has found a new way to embrace the adventure while participating in the community. The team, led by Mario, has never seen her so radiant and self-assured. It seems like the Mushroom Kingdom has become a place where the adventure never ends, and even princesses take destiny into their own hands.

Koopa’s AI Challenge

Are you a noob in using AI for work, school or other everyday tasks?

During the hackathon, we will develop a gamified training app for AI newcomers, focusing on engaging users with retro-style graphics and playful animations. The app will feature interactive tutorials on AI tools like CoPilot and image generation, incorporating a competitive game element for users to score points, while ensuring learning effectiveness remains paramount. We’ll leverage a React front-end with Azure and Dataverse back-end to manage course progression and user data.

Core objective

Our core objectives are to create an immersive and enjoyable learning platform that demystifies AI for beginners through gamification. We aim to build a comprehensive educational experience that not only teaches the fundamental concepts of AI but also provides hands-on experience with practical applications in the Microsoft suite. Our goal is to foster a competitive yet educational environment where users are incentivized to deepen their understanding of AI tools, promoting both individual learning and collaborative competition. Ultimately, we strive to produce a product that is accessible, engaging, and continuously adaptable to the evolving landscape of AI technology.

The style of the game will be a retro super mario theme, where the user will be able to move between objects aka challenges and interact with them. Each challenge the user encounter, will give point if they manage to finish it. While moving in the platform world, the user will also be prompted with basic AI knowledge, to learn and understand how to interact with it. Challenges will both be in-game interactive experiences and out-of-game tasks like using copilot within the Microsoft environment.

Solution details

  • Power page for hosting the game
  • PCF component for the actual game
  • Dataverse tables for storage – Challenges, Users, Progression
  • Model driven app for administration of data
  • Power BI reports for easy data insight

Early delivery

Until 12:00 pm on thursday, Pzl Plumbers has gotten their environment up and running, implementing tables into dataverse that will store the information about users, their points and information regarding the challenges. Power platform pipelines are also configured to our three ALM enviroments (dev, uat, prod). Devops projects has been created for code repos and task management.

They have had some minor struggles with setting up the PCF component for the game, which will be implemented within their Power Page, but its coming along and the team spirit keeps shining as always!

Replanning the plumber experience

Reducing the complexity

Super Mario isn’t always on adventures, and most of the time he is living a normal life while making a living as a plumber. A typical workday is full of tasks with different levels of complexity, and Mario would benefit from an application that can help reduce some of these tasks. Thereby allowing him to focus on the things he does best… Saving princesses and stomping turtles

Planning a plumbing system

Our solution will be an application developed to help plumbers in planning and estimate the cost of a plumbing system. The basic idea is to upload a houseplan and use AI to recognize obstacles, items that need to be connected and other elements that will affect the final layout. The user will then be able to “draw” the pipes on the plan while avoiding obstacles and connecting required elements, while the application generates a list of components needed for the system and a cost estimate.

Using Azure and Microsoft 365 for communication and management

The user will log in using their Azure AD user profile to an web app that synchronizes with a database in Azure to make sure speed and accessibility isn’t a problem. From this web app they can upload a houseplan that is immediately analyzed using an AI service to retrieve required data. This data is the saved to the database and synchronized back into the app.

As a new commissions are saved to the database they will be synchronized to Dataverse as both a backup and for easily connectivity to the Power platform. By using this platform there will possible to develop solutions that can be used for other activities like accounting, communication, statistics, etc. This also allows an easy implementation in Teams, allowing users to handle these tasks on the go.

KoopaKonstruct Manager: A Mario-Themed Odyssey in Coat Rack Crafting!

Greetings, fellow code adventurers! Our team, comprised of pixelated plumbers and tech-savvy Toads, embarked on a quest inspired by the legendary Jan – a hero in the real world, facing a perilous challenge: hanging up a coat rack.

Picture this: Jan, armed with a drill and determination, staring blankly at a wall of uncertainty. The screws were like the King of the Koopas – intimidating and confusing. But fear not, for in his hour of need, Jan called upon the mighty ChatGPT, the wise sage of all things knowledge (read about Jan’s journey here).

And thus, our hackathon journey began – with Jan’s coat rack conundrum as our muse. We present to you the glorious solution: KoopaKonstruct Manager – an augmented reality adventure in coat rack crafting!

Level 1: Visual Assembly

Equip your Hololenses, brave DIY enthusiasts! With a tap of the Hololens power-up, witness the magic unfold. Point your gaze at the wall and the materials scattered about, and voila! Virtual arrows and guidance pop up, showing you the way to coat rack victory. No more guessing which screws fit – Hololens will highlight the perfect match, like discovering a hidden 1-Up mushroom!

Level 2: Wall Wizardry

Ever wished for a magical guide to help you conquer the wall? Look no further! KoopaKonstruct Manager introduces the Wall Wizardry feature. Simply focus on the wall area where your coat rack dreams await. Hololens will scan and analyze, offering a detailed list of materials needed. But here’s the real power-up – with a blink of your eye, a FinOps-friendly purchase order is conjured! It’s like collecting coins in the Mushroom Kingdom, only in the world of FinOps.

Bonus Round: Goomba-Proof DIY

Worried about facing the Goombas of DIY disasters? Fear not! KoopaKonstruct Manager includes a bonus round – a virtual DIY assistant, offering real-time tips and tricks. From drilling depths to screwing strategies, your personal guide ensures you stomp out any DIY Goombas that stand in your way!

Warp Zone: Future Enhancements

The “KoopaKonstruct Manager” is just the beginning! Our team envisions future updates that include boss battles against DIY dragons and interactive power-ups for even more immersive crafting experiences. The future of coat rack hanging has never looked so bright – or pixelated!

And there you have it, folks! The saga of the KoopaKonstruct Manager – where Super Mario meets DIY mastery. Jan’s coat rack may have sparked the journey, but the adventure has only just begun. So, strap on your Hololenses, grab your virtual tool belt, and let the coat rack crafting commence!

May your code be bug-free and your coat racks hang with glory! Until next time, keep hacking and gaming on!

Soria Moria Nightmare – Early Delivery

Oh no! Princess Peach has been captured by the evil Bowser in the Soria Moria castle! You need to help the people of the Holmenkollen mushroom kingdom save her by solving puzzles all around the houses of Voksenkollen to find a way to access the scary Soria Moria castle!

Our solution

The game will be implemented as a point and click adventure using Power Apps and eventually implementing more Power Platform technology to create the puzzles, even in. This first Minimum Viable Delivery is not quite that advanced or even hard yet.

Current state

The user enters the game into a map screen. 

Clicking on the Gardeners Hut enters the player into the gardeners playroom! 

Looking around in the room the player will eventually find the powerbutton to the computer 

This lets the player solve a puzzle on the computer 

In this early version of the story, it turned out that the gardener had hacked the cage that Bowser stupidly had connected to the internet, so the princess is freed! 

(Fancy graphics pending) 

Congratulations, you have escaped the Soria Moria Nightmare!
