"Build your Power Apps correctly from day 1 so you don't suffer from 'technical debt'"
When I am not creating pages like this, I work as a developer, and in the "coding world", there's a concept we call "technical debt", which wikipedia defines as:
"the implied cost of additional rework caused by choosing an easy (limited) solution now instead of using a better approach that would take longer."
Put simply, if you don't build your app correctly from day 1, it will be much more expensive to fix it down the line.
You may not realise it, but Technical Debt also applies to No-Code tools like Power Apps. For example, if you don't build your app to work in offline scenarios and then it's tough to add that functionality. Or, if you develop your app to only work on a mobile and then a year down the line, the business request it also works on Tablet, it's incredibly time-consuming.
What You’ll learn from this Masterclass:
This Masterclass is full of advanced techniques for building scalable, fast-performing, responsive and robust Power Apps that your end-users will love. If you can spare 5-hours live (or via the recordings), the payback you will get for your $27 will be huge.
Working with Dates and Times
Dates and times are usually tiresome to deal with when building an app. Of course, end-users want to work with local times, but in many cases, they have to stored as UTC dates and times. We'll examine how to convert between timezones, adjust daylight savings time, and manage date-only values that include a time.
Build Responsive Power Apps
If your Power App needs to work on multiple screen sizes such as Desktop, Tablet and Mobile, the last thing you want to do is create 3 Apps or have it look horrid on 2 of the 3. During this part of the Masterclass, we will demonstrate several techniques that make creating 1 Responsive App for many screen sizes easy.
Managing Large Data Sources
Transferring large quantities of data between a data source and an app is inefficient and hurts performance. Power Apps supports delegation to control how much data is transferred between the app and the data source. We’ll share several workarounds that let you work with massive data sets without many delegation warnings.
Build Offline Power Apps
Many businesses have staff who take flights, operate "on the road", or work in poor internet connection areas. To keep your "offline" end-users happy, you must plan for offline scenarios from day 1. Unfortunately, retrofitting "offline" capabilities (into your App) is usually expensive and time-consuming, so it's always best to design with it in mind. We will explore how to build apps that can still work offline and re-sync when connected back to the Internet.
Leverage Flows to Process Data
Power Apps is a declarative language, & Power Automate is procedural, so there are times when it is better to process data using a Power Automate flow than doing it in Power Apps. This part of the Masterclass will examine several real-world cases where it's easier and more effective to use Power Automate than attempting it in Power Apps.
Our newly published Power App would be bug-free and perform at sub-second speeds in an ideal world. However, bugs generally can't be avoided, and building a fast app is possible, but it needs to be designed and built with that goal in mind. So we'll explore the tools and techniques you can use to troubleshoot issues and improve performance in your Power Apps.
