PowerApps Community Blog Highlights

Have you visited the Power Apps Community blog lately? Along with rapidly growing forums, fun and informative events, and ways to leave feedback, the Community blog is a platform for you to share ideas with your peers, industry experts, and us here at Microsoft.

We want to hear what’s got you thinking about PowerApps and business applications! Blog posts can be anything from opinion pieces on the latest industry trends, to helpful tips and how-tos for your fellow PowerApps users, to even “trip reports” from your local Microsoft event.

To get started, simply message me, @Jessica, with a rough title for your post and a couple of sentences to describe your topic. Together we’ll make sure you can preview how your post will look once it’s done, and set a publication date.
