Microsoft Flow Helps Create Simple Applications

The company continues to roll out development tools for non-programmers.

When Microsoft unveiled PowerApps last week, it also took the wraps off a new connection-based development tool called Flow. Similar to Yahoo Pipes (which is now discontinued) and IFTTT, Flow connects applications and services to simplify the process of creating new applications.

Currently, Flow supports inputs from and outputs to services like Twitter, GitHub, Salesforce, Dropbox, Slack, and Office 365. It also includes 63 templates that users can customize to meet their needs.

InfoWorld's Simon Bisson writes, "With tools like Flow and PowerApps, Microsoft is finally serving a developer audience composed of information workers who want to solve small problems. Flow is not a general-purpose programming tool, but it is nonetheless both powerful and flexible. Flow is an on-ramp into a new style of application development, and it’s one that anyone can use."
