What expression Language is being used in Power Apps



 I’m new to Power platform. I’m curious to know which expression language should I learn to work and develop Power Apps.


is it Power Query.


Also, will it be the same in Power Automate as well? 


If no, then please describe expression languages across these platform.

PowerApps uses PowerFx - it is it's own "language".  However, PowerApps is not a development platform, so don't think "develop".  It is modeled after Excel, so, the PowerFx formulas are much like you would experience in Excel.

You can view the formula references in the documentation.


I hope this is helpful for you.
