About the hackathon 

Register and show your skills on Power Platform, try to solve some of the challenges of our Norwegian customers during this two-day hackathon – while using Power Apps as a bridge between all products in Microsoft, from M365 to Azure. A team of mentors will be on standby during the hackathon to assist with blockers.  

At the end of the hackathon, your solutions will be presented to the customers and a jury panel. See the related PowerPoint slide deck for more info on the challenges and hackathon rules. Afterwards, your work will be promoted by us, and you are free to showcase your results on your own channels. 

Lastly, the hackathon will also feature multiple sessions with Microsoft MVPs, where they will discuss and showcase what they are working with. These sessions are open to everyone. 

Required experience 

It is not a requirement that you present a functioning solution – one of the hackathon goals is to gain hands-on experience with Power Apps and see its capabilities to create value for multiple customers! We created a Cloud Skills Challenge to quickly get you up to speed with Power Apps. With this learning path, no prior experience with Power Apps is required.

  • Understand concepts like Custom Connectors, Office Graph APIs, Power Automate orchestration, Power Virtual Agent Bot 
  • Power BI connecting to Dataverse or Azure datasources
