SharePoint PnP Webcast – Programmatically creating and updating modern pages in SharePoint Online

In this PnP Webcast, we concentrate on how you programmatically can create modern pages and how to update them. Modern pages are the default page type for both modern SharePoint sites as for classic SharePoint team sites, hence being able to use CSOM to create modern pages and update them by adding or removing client side web parts is something that’s very useful SharePoint extensibility scenarios.

What is SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns & Practices (PnP) web cast series?

SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns and PracticesSharePoint / Office Dev Patterns & Practices (PnP) webcast series covers 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. Our objective is to release new around 30 minute long web cast each Monday with few slides and a live demo on the covered topic. All web casts are published at the PnP YouTube channel 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 in our GitHub repositories 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

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.
