Power Fx is Microsoft's new low-code programming language  ↦

I’ve been skeptical of the recent no-code movement (which from my perspective is mostly pushed by startups trying to create a market), but this low-code concept seems much more fitting for 2021 and useful in general:

Microsoft Power Fx is a low-code general purpose programming language based on spreadsheet-like formulas. It is a strongly typed, declarative, and functional language, with imperative logic and state management available as needed.

What’s ironic about Power Fix (as of today) is that there is literally no code in the repo:

Power Fx started with Power Apps canvas apps and that is where you can experience it now. We are in the process of extracting the language from that product so that we can use it in more Microsoft Power Platform products and make it available here for you to use.

What they do have today is a start on the language docs. Over time this repo will transition from no-code, to low-code, and eventually to full-code. If everything goes as planned…
