You'll see where Power Apps fits in your toolset and how Power Apps can extend and build interfaces where you may have used InfoPath in the past. Demos and exercises will be used to illustrate the topics covered. You'll have the opportunity to "take the wheel" and test out Power Apps for yourself. Through a series of hands-on labs, you'll gain first-hand experience in customizing SharePoint/List forms with Power Apps and extending Lists and Teams user experiences. Your instructors will be there to assist anytime you have questions or need some help.

Attend this workshop and say goodbye to InfoPath. Gain the skills you'll need to immediately start customizing your Microsoft 365 SharePoint and Teams sites with Power Apps and Power Automate.

Notes and Requirements: To participate in the hands-on portion of this workshop, attendees should bring a laptop computer. Attendees who bring tablets, even with keyboards, will likely experience difficulties in successfully completing the labs.

We will be using Power Apps, SharePoint, Microsoft Lists, Teams and other Microsoft 365 components in our labs. Attendees may choose to use a personally owned or corporate Microsoft 365 tenant. If not, please register for a free Microsoft 365 Developer tenant prior to the workshop here: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/dev-program
