This is a step-by -step Power Apps tutorial for beginners, taking you through the whole process of creating your first app. No background in coding or app making is required to get started with this low-code app building. This tutorial makes the technology simple and clear to understand. It is full of tips and advice throughout that you’ll need to know to start making great apps.
You will learn how to create your first app in under 5 minutes, with just 3 clicks (connected to your own data source such as SharePoint, Microsoft Dataverse or Dynamics 365).
From there you will learn all the core components and concepts involved in building a canvas app – navigating the canvas, adding screens, labels, buttons, inputs, galleries, forms, media and more.
