Microsoft Power Fx is the low code language for expressing logic across the Microsoft Power Platform.  It is the same language that is at the heart of Microsoft Power Apps canvas apps today and is inspired by Microsoft Excel.   It enables the full spectrum of development from no code to pro code with no cliffs in between, enabling diverse teams to work together and saving everyone time and money.  We are very excited to bring it to more of the Power Platform and to share it with everyone as open source.  Only through a strong user community can a language grow and flourish.
