Power Platform | Having fun with NASA APIs, PowerApps, and Flow

This video shows how to leverage the power of PowerApps and the capabilities of Microsoft Flow to work with REST APIs. In this case, I will take advantage of NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day open API to show Microsoft Flow in action. The resulting picture's title, URL, and explanation are used to create a nice app to display the latest NASA space picture prowess.

Microsoft Flow | Transfer a file to Azure Storage Blob with Manually Triggered Flow

This video shows how to create a manually triggered Flow to transfer a file to an Azure Storage Container using the Azure Storage Blob connector. You will learn how to set up an Azure storage account and a container and create a workflow to transfer a file from your mobile device or PC to a blob in Azure. I also show how to leverage expressions to obtain the file name for the selected file.
