Marco Rocca

Microsoft - SR PFE - Business Productivity Domain

I'm a Microsoft SR Premier Field Engineer within the Modern Workplace domain and deals mainly (but not only ...) with SharePoint, a product that has been with him for 10 years and has experienced the birth and growth of all the latest versions. Today, however, collaboration is not just SharePoint, but all Office 365 applications that are helping to revolutionize the way we work. Although "writing code" is still one of its passions, today it supports customers in the migration of products on the cloud to the cloud world. In the last year I have participated in several conferences as a speaker among which WPC Milan, PowerPlatform World Tour, SharePoint Saturday and European Collaboration Summit.

Improve power of PowerApps with Reusable Control and Component Framework

Components are reusable building blocks for canvas apps. You can define a set of controls to reuse inside an app. You could import a component into other apps as well. They behave in a master-instance manner, meaning that any updates you make to the original (‘master-instance’) will apply to other copies in the same app.
The framework enables developers to create fully custom components for use across the full breadth of PowerApps capabilities.
