ABOUT THE COURSE

Learning concepts is great, but actually building and automating apps will help you solidify what you have learned. This course takes you through a series of hands on exercises all designed to give you practical experience building with the tools of the Power Platform. These hands on labs guide you through the requirements to the actual step-by-step task completion. This course is almost entirely hands on based learning.
