SharePoint Dev Weekly – Episode 51

SharePoint Dev Weekly is a video and a podcast series where Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft) and Waldek Mastykarz (Rencore) will have a weekly discussion on the latest SharePoint Dev topics. They are often joined by a visitor to talk about specific topics. We’ll also highlight other latest SharePoint Dev news and most interesting engineering and community articles. This was recorded on Monday 9th of September 2019. In session video guys were joined by Cathy Dew who works as a program manager at Microsoft. She leads the development of branding and store capabilities in SharePoint.

These videos and podcasts are published each week and they are intended to be roughly 20-30 minute, but they typically go slightly longer than intended if presenters get lost on the discussion, like this time.
