Office Dev PnP Web Cast – Throttling mechanisms in SharePoint Online

In this PnP Web Cast we concentrated on SharePoint Online throttling and how to deal with it in your own customizations.

Code executed towards SharePoint IOnline can in certain scenarios get throttled if the code is consuming too much resources compared to available resources in the SharePoint online at the time of the execution. This can result exceptions to be raised from the SharePoint Online. This web cast concentrates on covering the reasoning behind of this behavior and how you should deal with it in your customizations.

Code example used in the demo is available from the PnP sample library and is called as Core.Throttling

Presentation used in this web cast is available from

What is Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) web cast series? Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices

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

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.
