In this PnP Web Cast we concentrated on Microsoft Graph or more specifically covering how the .NET SDK for Microsoft Graph can be used in your customizations. .NET SDK for Microsoft Graph is great tool for simplifying the development experience when you take advance of Graph APIs. It provides easy to use and fluent access on information exposed within the Microsoft Graph APIs.
Presentation covers following topics:
- Introduction to Microsoft Graph API
- Introduction to .NET SDK for Microsoft Graph
- Insights on request model, query model, resource management and for exception handling
This web cast included three specific demos
- Playing with the Microsoft Graph API – Graph explorer and available resources

What is Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) web cast series?
Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) web cast series covers 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 a 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 in our GitHub repositories 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.
