About the Powerappathon for Policing

Following on from the successful PowerAppathon for Policing in October 2020, Microsoft, the NEP and Pythagoras are once again joining forces for a day of learning about Power Apps within Policing. This session will explore the challenges, opportunities, applications and considerations of Power Apps within the sector.

You’ll learn about the platform, gain insight into planning your Power Apps and try your hand at building your first Power App under the guidance of our experts, alongside Parm Singh and Tammy Briggs from Microsoft.

The PowerAppathon Lab takes place over Microsoft Teams, which you can join from your Teams app or via your browser. It consists of presentations, demonstrations and a hands-on build activity.
