In this PnP Web Cast we concentrated on the PnP Core Component and SharePoint related Nuget packages available from the Nuget gallery. Web cast concentrates on covering different available Nuget packages for SharePoint developers, including on-premises and Office 365 CSOM packages from product engineering and the PnP Core Component Nuget package, which is community driven tooling to increase developer productivity with CSOM based development.
PnP Core component contains extension methods for making development with CSOM more efficiently. This for example following capabilities
- Remote provisioning framework
- Remote timer job framework
- Authentication layer
- General developer friendly operations (>200 extension methods)
Presentation used in this web cast is available from http://docs.com/OfficeDevPnP.

What is Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) web cast series?
We have started this weekly Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) web cast series to cover different patterns, practices and topics around development with Office 365 and SharePoint. Majority of the topics are valid for the Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises. Our objective is to release new around 30-45 minute long web cast each Monday with few slides and live demo on the covered topic. All web casts are published at the PnP Channel 9 video blog with additional references on the existing materials.
PnP is community driven open source project where Microsoft and external community members are sharing their learning’s around implementation practices for Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises (add-in model). Active development and contributions happen our GitHub project under Dev branch and each month there will be a master merge (monthly release) with more comprehensive testing and communications. Latest activities and future plans are covered in our monthly community calls which are open for anyone from the community. Download invite from http://aka.ms/OfficeDevPnPCall.
This is work done by the community for the community without any actual full time people. It’s been great to find both internal and external people who are willing to assist and share their learning’s for the benefit of others. This way we can build on the common knowledge of us all. Currently program is facilitated by Microsoft, but already at this point we have multiple community members as part of the Core team and we are looking to extend the Core team with more community members.
If you have any questions, comments or feedback around PnP program or this blog post, please use the PnP Yammer group at http://aka.ms/OfficeDevPnPYammer.
