#PowerfulDevs Conference

The Powerful DEVs Conference was the first virtual conference of its kind. We showcased how developers can leverage the Power Platform to build applications faster and with far less effort. Connect with industry-recognized ProDev influencers, Microsoft Cloud Advocates, trusted and diverse community leaders, and members of the Power Platform Team.


Revisit this page during the event to engage in live (and post-event) discussions on those topics with both speakers and community. The speakers will be here for a live Q&A for at least 30 minutes immediately after their session concludes. After the event, come back to find additional slides, videos, and resources for this session.

About This Session:

July 15, 2020: 11:30 PDT - 11:55 PDT

There’s more to synchronizing your Power Apps data than timers and polling! With the Azure SignalR Service and a couple Azure Functions and a single Power Apps component framework component, your apps can be communicating with each other in real time—your users can be communicating with each other in real time, and you or your org’s app makers can put it all together with just a few lines of Power Apps code! We’ll walk through standing it all up, and walk through a Power Apps demo built on top of it all.

About the Speakers:

Greg Hurlman is a Developer @ Microsoft on the Power Apps component framework team. Follow @98codes on Twitter.

Those homework links, if you need them:

aka.ms/LearnPCF - Walk through creating your first PCF component!
aka.ms/SignalrJSQS - The SignalR JavaScript quick start!
aka.ms/FunctionsIntro - Your introduction to Azure functions!

I want to know what you create! Tell me here or tweet it at me, I'm @98codes on Twitter.


Hey folks! If you have any questions about PCF, SignalR, or Functions I'll do my best to answer them! Ask me anything!


Will the example/demo code be hosted somewhere?


I will get a version of the code up, including a PowerApp ready to use it. When I know where that stuff will land, I'll update here.


Dona mentioned you will be on the upcoming POWERful Devs #lesscodemorepower show on Channel 9. Anything specific you are excited to discuss on that show?


Anything I can find (or have sent my way, lol) that writes just enough traditional code in order to put exponentially more power in a Power Apps developer's hand, I want to let the world know on the show—knowing the traditional-dev Power Platform community I've already seen hard at work on soooo many things, I know those solutions are out there!
