#SPSMUC13 – Level up with Microsoft PowerApps and Microsoft Flow – Mikael Svenson

Mikael has generated great hype during the presentation, showing us fresh air with interesting future business scenarios with PowerApps and Microsoft Flow.
He has presented a game “Whac-an-MVP” here a demo, yes you have heard it right, a game developed with PowerApps read the article on his blog and also a demo about cascading drop down.
However the PowerApps seems like a little bit acerb yet, that’s my opinion, but take a look at the future.
