For State and Local Policing

Event Time: 10:00 – 15:30 (EDT)
Event Date: Thursday 20th May
Event Type: Teams Meeting

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 under the guidance of our experts.

For this special edition of the PowerAppathon, we will be taking a look at the challenges, opportunities and use cases of Power Apps within State and Local Policing. Delegates from the USA and Canada are invited to join Microsoft and Pythagoras to learn how they can transform paper-based and inefficient processes by quickly creating purpose-built business applications.

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, demos 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.

Power Apps Build Pre-Requisites

In order to participate in the afternoon Power Apps build session, we will provide each delegate with their own credentials to a demo Microsoft 365 account.

To build your Power App, you will need to log in to the demo account, either by logging out of your existing Microsoft 365 account, or by using an incognito browser. Your organisation may have security restrictions in place that prevent you from accessing this demo tenant, so we will provide your credentials in advance of the session so that you can make appropriate arrangements.
