    Are you an app person or a flow person?

    Are you an app person or a flow person?

    It’s been my observation that with a few notable exceptions, people in the Power Platform community primarily focus on Power Apps or on Power Automate. Lots of people will use both, but generally, people are more “app people” or “flow people.”
    I don’t have a strong preference between the two, and I regularly use and enjoy both platforms, but I’ve had conversations with people in the community that say something along the following lines:
    Flow Person: “I love Power Automate, but Power Apps (canvas apps) are confusing.”
    Apps Person: “I can write canvas apps all day long but you need to be a developer to use Power Automate.”
    I’ve also noticed that if you suggest a flow solution in the Power Apps forum or an app solution in the Power Automate forum at powerusers.microsoft.com, people will give you funny looks.
    Intrigued by this phenomenon, I interviewed some of my friends in the Business Applications community to see what they thought was behind this divide. Why does one tool seem accessible and easy to some while difficult to others?
    In today's podcast (and on Power Platform Tip Of The Day) George Doubinski and Joel Lindstrom explore this phenominon and what makes people gravitate toward Power Automate or Power Apps?

    why Power Apps Portals Need API's

    why Power Apps Portals Need API's

    New in preview, Microsoft has released a CRUD API for Power Apps Portals. Why do we need this when Common Data Service already has a web API? Hint: It's not for integration, it's for user experience.

Great content

At least great content if Dynamics 365 is your thing, otherwise it’s boring as heck.
