  2. Using SharePoint Framework to embed JS and CSS to modern pages  a React-based SPFx web part and extension that allows Admins to add/modify/delete references to custom .js and .css scripts for Modern pages within a SP online site using the SPFx application customizer extension.  Paste a link to a script in the webpart and then activate – update the application customizer extension – userCustomActions behind the scenes to modify page.
  3. Using Codespaces with SharePoint Framework – introduction to Visual Studio Codespaces – a viable cloud-hosted dev environment (development container) accessible from anywhere.  Essentially, Visual Studio in a browser.  Connect to existing Azure DevOps or GitHub Repo.  Developers can create a container and configure it as an SPFx environment.
  4. Using React Hooks with SharePoint Framework – an Adaptive Card Viewer that uses React Hooks to get information.  Essentially this is the React Hooks version of The Adaptive Cards Host (Hugo Bernier) demoed on this call in April.   The React FunctionComponent uses React useEffect hooks to get info.  Hooks and functional components can be used along-side class components.
