Today we will wrap up A Lap around Microsoft Graph Toolkit series with a few project and community resources, share our roadmap, ask for your feedback, and provide some next steps you can take.
A huge thank you to everyone involved!
This project was mostly a labor of love as it’s not the primary day job for many of our contributors. The series wouldn’t have been possible without all the planners, content contributors, and you as readers. We would like to extend our most sincere thank you to all that helped make this project a reality. As we reflect on lessons learned, what went well, and what we can improve on for future projects, we especially appreciate your feedback. Please take a few minutes to share your feedback and suggestions on anything and everything related to this series as it helps make future projects like this possible.
Here are a few things you can do to get involved or continue your learning:
- Share your knowledge of Microsoft Graph and Microsoft Graph Toolkit at user groups, conferences, meetups, blogs, and more.
- Review Microsoft Graph and Microsoft Graph Toolkit documentation and submit updates if you see anything that needs additions or corrections.
- Share this series with your coworkers, friends, students, or anyone else who might benefit from it.
- Submit issues and PR’s on Microsoft Graph Toolkit repository. We are getting ready to launch a new program where you can win a prize for contributing to our project! Keep an eye out on our social accounts where we will make the announcement soon.
- Share your stories with us! We would love to hear about how you and your company use Microsoft Graph Toolkit to accelerate development.
Microsoft Graph Toolkit roadmap
In June 2020, we released v1.3.2 that captured quite a few new features since the beginning of this series. We are working hard on MGT v2.0, a major release in which we plan to incorporate feedback and introduce new features coming from our partners and community members. This will include splitting our main package into multiple packages for projects to consume easily, adding even more features to mgt-person-card component, building a file picker component, improving on mgt-tasks to have a tailored experience for planner and To Do APIs, introducing theming support, implementing API call caching, exposing APIs to help developers quickly build Graph connected components, and so much more!
