Microsoft Mechanics takes a look at the latest capabilities for Power Apps that allow you to build responsive and rich app experiences around your data and processes with zero-to-low-code. Power Apps is about building modern and cross-platform apps that are accessible to all types of users — from non-technical to developers. If you are new to Power Apps, the experience is similar to a cross between PowerPoint and Excel.

Join Jeremy Chapman as lead Power Apps Program Manager, Clay Wesener, shows you how to get started; from a blank app, ready-made templates, or based on data you already have. You’ll see new capabilities such as how to incorporate low-code components, components created using code by a pro developer, and how to use mixed reality to bridge the gap between your app and the real world – whether that’s working with geospatial controls, measuring spaces, or viewing 3D objects.
