  1. Creating a Minesweeper game in React with SPFx – First time contributor Pieter Heemeryck added the classic game of Minesweeper into the PnP Samples repository as a SPFx webpart created with Fluent UI.  Get to know the code through the CodeTour (VS Extension) he recorded.  Functionality:  Click (discover), Plant (flag), chording, reset, and 3 difficulty level settings.  Displays score and high score.   High Scores – SharePoint API REST calls to back-end SharePoint list.
  2. Sending a Teams Message using Microsoft Graph from a SPFx web part – Here’s a SPFx web part that can be located on an intranet homepage that detects the current user’s login state, displays the user’s Team affiliations in a Tree view and allows the user to select a Microsoft Teams channel to which to send a message.   The web part uses Teams Graph end-points to deliver personalized content to the currently logged-in user.
  3. Create a To Do task with Microsoft Graph from an email with SPFx Outlook Add-In – Use an SPFx Outlook Add-in and Microsoft Graph ToDo endpoint (in preview) to add a To Do task to one of your task lists in Outlook.  This Add-in uses the SPFx CreateTask web part to call graph.   Of course, you may use the SPFx web part in Outlook, Sharepoint or in Teams.  The presenter delivers a complete step-by-step on deploying the Outlook Add-in.
