What do we call the coding language that we use in PowerApps?

In powerApps, we use very little coding but I want to know what that language is called.

Based on what I know, currently there is no "Name " for the formula used within PowerApps (Canvas-App formulas ?).

 

The introduction of the formula is documented below:

Get started with canvas-App formulas in PowerApps

Hope @GregLi could share more details on this.

Since, it not a programming language exactly, I guess calling them just functions or expressions makes sense.

Why does every post on Microsoft sites appear twice? All the time?! It's been like this for years

Actually it shows Accepted Solution and Answers in two different sections for better readability, that is why it shows twice.

Hi, 
I know it is an old post, but, just for future reference, I update this thread.
Microsoft has announced the name of this language is Microsoft Power Fx.
Good luck with PowerAppsing!
