In this weekly discussion of latest news and topics around Microsoft 365, hosts – Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft), Waldek Mastykarz (Rencore), are joined by Rabia Williams – MVP, Developer with Engage Squared in Brisbane, Australia. This episode’s conversation evolves from the ease of working with SPFx, to challenges of cloud-based authentication, to being involved with the tremendous growth of Microsoft Teams apps/extensions. On becoming an MVP – focus on creating awareness and on sharing your interests and learnings with others. On PnP awareness – the reality is there are more newbies than experts out there, it’s incumbent on us to keep learning how to explain the basics better. The trio agrees – contributing to an open-source effort is a different type of developer experience. It’s people to people focused, it’s inclusive, it’s addictive and it’s rewarding. In this episode, 15 new community articles are reviewed. Outside this episode please enjoy the diversity of keynotes and sessions at this year’s virtual Microsoft Build 2020 conference happening presently.
As always, if you need help on an issue, want to share a discovery, or just want to say: “Job well done”, please reach out to Vesa, to Waldek or to your PnP Community.
