Power Fx: Introduction Course Outline

Power Fx is a low-code programming language that is designed to be easy to use for non-technical users, allowing them to create custom applications and automate processes using the Microsoft Power Platform.

Power Fx is based on Microsoft Excel's formula language, which is a widely used tool for data manipulation and analysis. It uses a familiar syntax and offers a wide range of functions, making it easy for people to create complex business logic without having to write traditional code.
