SharePoint Framework Community Call Recording – 13th of February 2020

SharePoint Framework Special Interest Group (SIG) bi-weekly community call recording from February 13th is now available from the SharePoint Development YouTube channel at http://aka.ms/spdev-videos.

Call summary:

Updates on SharePoint Community resources and activity and from Microsoft SharePoint engineering. The “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) on the present and future of SPFx session delivered on the 11th of February was a hit. Two unified communications platform – SharePoint/Teams integration videos released this week were highlighted, links below. PnPjs v2.0.3 release is scheduled for Feb 14th, a new PnPjs v2 video (2nd in series) was released this week and a 3rd video on Extensions will be released next week. New preview version v2.7 PnP Office 365 CLI has been released. Beta v1.17 of React Content Controls and v1.16.0 of React Property Controls are now available. A new version v1.11.1 of the PnP SPFx Generator is released as well.

Two demos are delivered in this session:

  1. React based Calendar solution for SharePoint and Microsoft Teams built with SharePoint Framework.  In this demo Sébastien Levert reviews 2 ways to insert a Calendar into a Teams page – as a Teams Channel tab (events only from the team calendar) and as a Personal App (events from both the team and your personal calendars).
  2. Getting started with Microsoft Graph JavaScript SDK in SharePoint development – Darrel Miller who presented in the January 30th client-side call, walks viewers through selected functionality found in the 2 Microsoft Graph libraries – Graph Types (the auto-generated library) and Graph Client (js library), he manages. Darrel would very much appreciate it if PnP Community members would evaluate capabilities in either Graph library and provide feedback on functionality that may not translate well to SPFx.

Thank you PnP community members for your great work on controls, demos and documentation.
