Three demos were delivered in this session.  1) Using @rowIndex and Custom Header in list view formatting – the baseline @rowIndex (Alternating Row formatting) capability is significantly enhanced with a formatting sample that allows the developer to not only select alternating rows, but also to hide existing column headings, to create independent row formatting, to add a custom header and to add icons and color fields based on position in the Row Index, 2) Getting started with customizing lists using PnP PowerShell – step-by-step on using  PnP PowerShell in the new Windows Terminal to create and populate a custom list (GenericList) on a targeted site, and 3) Updates on SharePoint development and extensibility documentation structures – A guided tour of the newly reorganized SharePoint developer documentation site.

The call was hosted by Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft).
