SharePoint Dev Weekly – Episode 55

SharePoint Dev Weekly is a video and a podcast series where Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft) and Waldek Mastykarz (Rencore) will have a weekly discussion on the latest SharePoint Dev topics. They are often joined by a visitor to talk about specific topics. We’ll also highlight other latest SharePoint Dev news and most interesting engineering and community articles. This was recorded on Monday 7th of October 2019.

These videos and podcasts are published each week and they are intended to be roughly 20-30 minute, but they typically go “slightly” longer than intended if presenters get lost on the discussion, like this time… This took again slightly more than an hour…  Please do give us feedback on this video and podcast series and also do let us know if you have done something cool/useful so that we can cover that in the next weekly summary! The easiest way to let us know is to share your work on Twitter with a hashtag of #SPDevWeekly. Notice that we always look for as fresh and new content as possible. “Sharing is caring!
