PowerApps: A Tour of Microsoft's new data-driven cross-device RAD environment

George Young

Microsoft PowerApps has just gone into public preview. Join us as we introduce this new platform and walk through creating a couple of data-driven apps that run on iOS and Windows, as well as the web, from an Access developer's perspective.

PowerApps is a service for creating, managing and using custom business apps across platforms. PowerApps connects to your existing systems and data sources securely, allows you to build apps, forms, and workflows without writing code, and lets you publish apps instantly for web and mobile.

George first encountered Microsoft Access when using the thirty-plus floppy disk versions of Office to teach Statistics and MIS in the early 1990’s. It’s been true love ever since. George has worked as a software developer for the past twenty years, including twelve at Microsoft (in just about every group other than Office). He is currently an independent consultant living at 7000 feet in Larkspur, Colorado, working primarily on .NET applications. George still has a commercial site or two that is driven by an Access database sitting in the server file system.
