Microsoft Flow is like IFTTT for connecting cloud services - Business Insider

Evidently the Microsoft Flow intro workflow wasn't quite ready
[Update: site is live now; see https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/getting-started/ for an overview; work or school email id required; tangentially, PowerApps is now in open beta]
"Meet Microsoft Flow: A free way to connect all of your cloud services — including Slack, GitHub, Twitter, and Google Drive — together in new and novel ways.

You can have your Dropbox files automatically copied to a OneDrive account. You can have your Tweets saved to a spreadsheet. If you've ever used the mega-popular IFTTT service, it's exactly like that, with user-created "flows" for shunting data from one service to another.

Even more interestingly, it looks like Microsoft wasn't ready to unveil Flow just yet: An annunciatory blog post, dated April 27th 2016, is publicly viewable at the time of writing, but the main flow.microsoft.com site doesn't yet work. Both the blog and the site were first noticed by Twitter user "h0x0d.""
