Course Overview

Building Business Solutions with Power Apps and Flow is an intensive 3-day training class designed for people who have already attended the Microsoft App-in-a-Day (AIID) training and are ready to move their PowerApps and Flow skills to the next level. Students will learn best practices for building canvas apps and flows to update and manage content in Azure SQL, SharePoint Online, Excel workbooks and OneDrive for Business.

After providing a foundation for building canvas apps and flows, this course teaches students how to build business solutions with the Common Data Service for Apps (CDSA) by creating custom entities and model-driven apps. The class also examines advanced techniques required in real-word PowerApps scenarios such as creating custom connectors and conducting application lifecycle management (ALM) using managed solutions and multiple environments for development, UAT and production.
