About the day

The PowerAppathon Lab is a free, full-day event which provides a hands-on introduction to the Power Platform. During the day you’ll learn about the possibilities of the platform, find out how to plan, secure and govern Power Apps, and try your hand at building your first Power App.

The PowerAppathon Lab takes place over Microsoft Teams, which you can join from your Teams app or via your browser. There will be a mixture of presentations and demos, 1-2-1 phone calls for Power Apps advice and an independent Power App building session supported by our consultants.

The session can be as interactive as you’d like to make it. You’re welcome to ask questions and join in in discussion or sit back and take it all in.
