About this Event

Are you interested in learning about a more powerful way to integrate Web API with Azure Functions (serverless) using OpenAPI? Then this 2-hr free and online event is for you.

It's live-streamed from 4:30-6:30pm PST on July 12. Register to attend, and learn more about the speakers and agenda, on the event page!

Who is this for?

This is an event for anyone who is curious about OpenAPI, Azure Functions, or Power Platforms - and is looking for more effective ways to integrate these technologies into their workflows.

It's also a great place to learn about fusion development - an approach that involves breaking down the silos between professional developers (who understand the technologies) and citizen developers (who understand the business needs and domain-specific challenges).

Want a sneak peek at what this means? Check out these two learning resources:

Fusion Development: eBook

The eBook gives an introduction to fusion development that shows how different stakeholders in the app development process can engage meaningfully with each other.

The images shows how fusion developers and pro developers can work together in an app dev process

It also explores a sample scenario (familiar to many such teams) and helps you walk through the steps to identify and integrate relevant technologies to build the required workflow to develop and deploy a real-world application.

Fusion Development: Learning Path

This learning path complements the e-book but offers a self-paced step-by-step exploration of the technologies involved with hands-on exercises for validation. Learn how to build a Power Apps component, describe your Web APIs with OpenAPI (and integrate with Azure API Management) - then discover and use those Web API from Power Apps applications.

Register for the event and learn how Azure Functions, OpenAPI, and Power Platforms, work well together to empower fusion development teams to build and deploy apps in scalable and seamless ways. The event is free and online!

Explore the resources (eBook and Learning Path) for a self-paced review of these topics before or after the event. Use them to reinforce learnings and get hands-on experience in developing with these technologies in a fusion team context.
