Power Platform Developers Weekly - Issue #86
🥇 Cover Story
🔥 Microsoft Ignite
Microsoft introduced a new way to pay for Power Apps and related Power Platform services which are designed to provide you with more flexible options to meet a variety of scenarios.
As an experimental feature, two makers can now work on the same app at the same time. This is a first step, seeking your feedback, as we continue to build co-authoring features across Power Apps.
With Power Apps mobile apps (preview), Power Apps is truly becoming a Mobile Application Development Platform, stuffed with MAD skills. Low-code mobile app creation, seamless end-to-end branding, multiple app embedding, distribute your app natively, and use enterprise governance with Intune.
The creation of custom connectors is simplified when using the Azure API Management service.
The preview release of Microsoft Power Fx is now available as open-source on GitHub. You can now freely integrate this Excel-like, low code programming language in all of your own projects.
