Cincy.Develop()

Website: Cincy Day of Agile and Cincy.Develop()

When: Fri. Jul 28, 2:40pm-3:40pm

Title: Integrate All the Things: PowerApps and Microsoft Flow for Developers

Abstract: Securely start a server farm of Azure dev VMs with the tap of a button on your phone. Update data in an on-prem DB from any device without writing any plumbing code or UI layer. In this session we will overview PowerApps and Microsoft Flow which are low-code / no-code solutions that allow forms and workflow development that integrate to hundreds of services including Twilio, Twitter, Azure, GitHub, and more. We will also talk about the developer story for integrating with Custom Connectors and on-prem data sources such as SQL Server and SharePoint. Lastly we will demo a number of scenarios to show how easily you can create and consume apps across Windows, iOS, Android, and web. Prior experience with PowerApps and Flow is not required.

Title: Intro to Power BI for Office 365 Developers

Abstract: “Power BI is SSRS in the cloud, right?” “I’ll throw a few pie charts on the screen and call it a dashboard, right?” Wrong. In this session we will introduce Office 365 developers to the Power BI service and Power BI Desktop. We will cover data sources that can be used (Azure SQL, SharePoint, files, etc.), direct query vs. imported dataset, report and dashboard creation, and the on-prem data gateway. We will also break down misconceptions of good dashboard design (hint: pie charts and 3D are almost always a bad design). Prior experience with Power BI or Power BI desktop are not required.
