Back in March, Microsoft announced that its annual Build developer conference would be held on May 24-26. The company plans to announce some new developer-focused technologies and tools, as well as big updates for various products.
According to a new report from ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley, Microsoft is also planning a major rebrand of its Power Apps portals. The platform will soon be renamed to Microsoft Power Pages with an updated experience that will allow developers to build secure business web pages and applications.
Earlier this month, Microsoft leakster WalkingCat leaked a presentation about Power Pages. Additionally, Twitter user Tero Alhonen uncovered the session information on Twitter, which will take place on Wednesday, May 25, from 12:30 PM to 1:15 PM PDT. The session titled “Power up your development efforts with the latest low code innovations” will feature three speakers from Microsoft, including Ryan Cunningham, VP for Power Apps.
“The Power Platform provides the markets most complete set of low code development tools empowering all developers to build better apps and co create effectively. From Power Pages, a new product that will empower everyone to build responsive and secure business web pages, to cards which provides a new way to build embeddable and reusable components to transform connected digital experiences to an entirely new way to build apps from scratch with [new name],” the company explained.
Microsoft launched Power Apps portals in preview back in October 2019. It’s a development platform that enables low-code developers to build business websites and publish them for desktop and mobile devices.
