Power Apps for ProDevs | APIs, DevOps & Publishing to Microsoft Teams

published 1 month ago by Microsoft Mechanics

Take a closer look at how the Power Platform can be used for professional developers’ most demanding business apps. Per Mikkelsen, GPM for Microsoft Power Platform, joins host Jeremy Chapman to share how you can build APIs as serverless functions, integrate Power Apps as part of your CI/CD pipelines, and publish Power Apps to Microsoft Teams for increased discoverability. The Power Platform is designed for any app and any developer. We've set out to remove a lot of the pain in the software development process and speed things up that can take a lot of time. This makes it simple to build new apps or extend existing apps, fast. Most of what you need to build your UI and to integrate your business logic and workflow processes can be done by the Power Platform. It sits on top of Dataverse to give you a powerful and managed data backend for any data, so that you have common data and logic stack that all your apps and services can use. On top of that, we give you all 400 data connectors, which seamlessly connect with the barrier systems and services that you may have in your organization. And if you need more custom logic on the backend, you also have all the coding environments available in Azure. ► QUICK LINKS: 00:00 - Introduction 01:55 - Build complex apps 03:00 - T-Mobile example app 04:41 - How to build custom APIs 08:52 - How Power Apps works with existing DevOps or CI/CD processes 11:35 - How to make apps more discoverable 12:11 - Wrap up ► Link References: Watch our show on Dataverse at If you're using Azure DevOps, check out For more on governance capabilities available with the Power Platform, go to Check out the new learning path we published at ► Unfamiliar with Microsoft Mechanics?
