In this PnP Web Cast we concentrated on PnP PowerShell CmdLets which will let you to manage Office 365 SharePoint sites or on-premises SharePoint deployments remotely using remote APIs, but without writing any lines of actual code. PnP PowerShell helps you to create automated scripts for example to provision site collections with specific customizations or to manage any assets in the SharePoint sites remotely. PnP PowerShell CmdLets are using PnP Core Component in their implementation as the underlaying engine for the operations, but you can take advantage of the operations just by writing scripts.
Erwin van Hunen is the creator of the PnP PowerShell CmdLets and there’s already numerous other contributors from the community towards them. This is open source community driven work, coordinated by the PnP Core Team or mainly Erwin himself. PnP PowerShell CmdLets are available from PnP PowerShell repository at GitHub. You can find also full list of the available CmdLets from the documentation readme file.

What is Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) web cast series?
We have started this weekly Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) web cast series to cover different patterns, practices and topics around development with Office 365 and SharePoint. Majority of the topics are valid for the Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises. We will release new around 30 minute long web cast each Monday with few slides and live demo on the covered topic. All web casts are published at the PnP Channel 9 video blog with additional references on the existing materials.
PnP is community driven open source project where Microsoft and external community members are sharing their learning’s around implementation practices for Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises (add-in model). Active development and contributions happen our GitHub project under Dev branch and each month there will be a master merge (monthly release) with more comprehensive testing and communications. Latest activities and future plans are covered in our monthly community calls which are open for anyone from the community. Download invite from http://aka.ms/OfficeDevPnPCall.
This is work done by the community for the community without any actual full time people. It’s been great to find both internal and external people who are willing to assist and share their learning’s for the benefit of others. This way we can build on the common knowledge of us all. Currently program is facilitated by Microsoft, but already at this point we have multiple community members as part of the Core team and we are looking to extend the Core team with more community members.
