Power Platform in a Week of Lunches

Grab your sandwich (or last night’s leftovers) and join us to learn all about the Power Platform in a week of lunches. The Power Platform is the low-code platform that spans Office 365, Dynamics 365, Azure and hundreds of other apps as a connected toolset for building end-to-end business solutions. 

This webinar series is designed for beginners, introducing the components and features of the Power Platform and how they can be used to create business solutions. Each day we will cover a different part of the platform, taking you through what it does, how it works with the other components, and show you some demos and use cases. Each session stands alone, so you can join us for one, two, or all five sessions over the course of the week – although if you join us for the full week, you’ll see that the platform is more than the sum of its parts. 

Powerful alone. Better together
