This is a zero to hero PowerApps training day. The expected outcome is that every attendee will take away a fully functioning PowerApp designed to track a pipeline of any kind.

This is a full day training session where the basics of PowerApps will be covered and will then take each student through a step by step course to build out a tracking app that looks great.
The course output is a functioning pipeline tracking app that can then be plugged into any data source post course to provide ongoing value back in the attendees parent organisation.
The delivery style will be tailored to each attendee in a mix of teacher directed steps as well as hackathon style segments to allow people to get creative with their app look and feel.
The app is a show case of what is possible with a PowerApp and goes well beyond the basic three screen applications to really show attendees how they can use the Power Platform to solve their own business / data capture issues.
