Power Apps is the one of the hottest tech skills to add to your resumé in 2021!
If you've been keeping your finger on the Microsoft 365 pulse, you will have noticed that there's been an explosion in demand for people who can build solutions on top of the Microsoft Power Platform. Sitting at the very epicentre of this demand is the popular, low-code tool called Power Apps.
One of the main reasons Power Apps has grown so popular is because it enables "non-developers" to become ... developers! Now, this might sound a little strange, but it's true.
Power Apps gives business users the ability to "drag 'n drop" widgets onto a blank "canvas" to create robust applications with only a tiny amount of code needed (aka. expressions).
In short, Power Apps has now empowered all areas of the business to self-serve by creating applications without needing to enlist the expert services of a developer.
It's because Power Apps is such a great skill for you (or your Team) to acquire that we're running a 5-hour Power Apps Beginner workshop aimed at those who want to add it to their toolbelt.
We recommend you attend this workshop for these reasons:
Reason #1: No prior experience needed.
Nowadays, many blog posts and videos demonstrate something cool that Power Apps can do, but all too often, they're way too advanced for us. This workshop will show you Power Apps from scratch with no previous experience necessary. We will also dig into the what's, why's and how's together, step by step!
Reason #2: Treat it as your dedicated learning time.
If you can clear your diary for 5-hours (on 5th May), this is the perfect opportunity to finally get to grips with something you've probably been "trying" to find the time to learn for months. Let's just "get it done" in an afternoon!
In fact, you should see this workshop as a worthwhile investment in your future.
Reason #3: It's time to go deep!
In recent months, we've seen an explosion of virtual conferences. These conferences are great because they give you insight into lots of different areas. However, they seldom go "deep" and aren't really classified as "training". A structured workshop, such as this one, gives the instructor time to take you from a novice to "power user", all in a single afternoon. There's also plenty of time to ask questions and follow along.
If you're still on the fence, we recently ran a Collab365 Customer Research Survey, with the following findings:
