Grow Flow with Low Code

Speaker: Michael Ochs |

In this session we'll demonstrate how you can use a little bit of code to make Flow even more powerful. The session is intended for every level of Flow user, as long as you have a good understanding of Flow's capabilities and it's purpose. For as much as Flow can do there are just as many things it can't and when you reach the end of Flow's capabilities you may require a little bit of code to help your project to the finish line. This is primarily a demo session and we'll show how to build custom Flow plugins, from scratch, that leverage Azure Functions to extend Flows capabilities. The session focuses on two areas of extending out of the box flow capabilities. 1. Handling data validation that can't be accomplished using out-of-the-box functions 2. Extending existing connectors to provide more capabilities to grow your Flow to places never seen before. Make sure to stay tuned all the way to the end!
