What is Microsoft Power Apps Developer Plan?


The Power Apps Developer Plan gives us the free development environment to build and test with Power Apps, Power Automate, and Microsoft Dataverse.

This enables us to,

  • Create Microsoft Power Apps and Power Automate Flows without writing code, using the development tools and can easily share and collaborate the solutions with other developers.
  • Connect to any data source by using Power Platform connectors or by creating your own custom connectors.
  • Use a fully managed, scalable data platform with Dataverse, including OOB common tables or can build our own data schema.
  • Export the solutions that you create in the developer environment and publish them on Microsoft AppSource.
