Microsoft Build kicked off today few hours ago and it is up and running live now and there were some great announcements came through so far from the sessions. I will be going to cover some of the announcements that I was able to capture today for the benefit of the community.
Dona Sarkar & Seth Juarez started the Microsoft Build 2020.
Satya Nadella mentioned about Microsoft mission and how it empowers people for building applications to help the community.
As always super excited about Power Platform and it’s exciting to see how it’s empowering developers and there are 3.5 million developers that is just amazing.
70% Increase in Professional developers using Power Apps. It’s just mind blowing the speed at which Power Platform is growing.
Also there was lots of discussion about RGV2cw which is in the background where Satya Nadella. If you don’t know what that means try out in Base64Decode. When you decode RGV2cw result is “Dev“. Isn’t that smart move from Satya as always.
More about Power Platform is below.
It’s amazing 70K new organizations are using Power Platfrom.
Power Platform is not only for low code development but it really empowers pro developers this is really powerful message that needs to spread into the developer community.
Microsoft Acquisition of Softomotive was also on display during the #MSBuild.
It’s great to see how all of these building blocks create the intelligent cloud and this is the future and it seems bright with what Microsoft is bringing out. Also scalability and flexibility is available with Azure been the backbone. No other cloud offers what Microsoft offers at the moment and it’s been growing exponentially with lots of features and capabilities.

Building new application for teams and publishing it so that users can use it and in one shop application where you can access all your favorite applications make it more productive and you would only need to have Teams to work with other applications. Isn’t it amazing !!!
Publishing your Teams app to AppSource.
Teams and Power Apps is great combination this increases the productivity and let you build the Power Apps from the teams itself. And once you have completed the development you can embed it in the teams channel where users can access them and use it.
