Power Platform Developers Weekly - Issue #21
By Power Maverick • Issue #21 • View online
Welcome to this week edition of Power Platform Developers Weekly.
With canvas apps getting more traction even for developers, we always forget to understand the design principals when creating the application. Obviously, developers are not UX designers but some times we have to do the design and this site will help you get some ideas. Also, always check the best practices on Fluent UI with respect to the usage of controls.
Are you or your client still stuck with the old CDS or D365 connector in canvas app? Read through this article on Microsoft Docs that guides you with a proper process of making the switch.
Henry Jammes, a senior architect at Microsoft shared his top picks from 2020 wave 2 release for Power Apps. So, if you haven’t had a chance to go through the release notes yourself then his top picks will help you get up-to-date.

#PowerApps Anti-Example😡

Always use the LOOKUP function to find the first matching record in a table, never FIRST + FILTER 😎

Why? Better performance. LOOKUP stops searching after the 1st match is found. FILTER is applied to the entire table before getting the FIRST record.
