SharePoint Dev Weekly – Episode 64

In this session of SharePoint Dev Weekly, hosts – Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft), Waldek Mastykarz (Rencore), discuss the latest news and topics around SharePoint development.  Vesa and Waldek are joined by Thomas Gölles – team lead responsible for modern workplace solutions at Solvion (MVP) in Austria. 

In addition to drawing attention to the latest advancements being delivered by the SharePoint Community and Microsoft, Vesa, Waldek and Thomy’s discussion this week focused on:  Increasing cloud adoption across Europe, personal Bots, concierge Bots, Teams and Customer Graphs. 

The question: How does one become an MVP?  Do what you love – blogging, speaking, coding, and the MVP will come.  Bot value?  Include:  1) Filtering – time saved not having to answer the routine questions and 2) consistent answers – 1 version of the truth.  Bot future?  It’s happening now.  Natural language processing is enabling the One organizational Bot to understand requester intent and access the appropriate knowledge base or subject matter expert.  Need to move the customer to the next stage?  Deliver a Bot-in-a-day workshop.   

This week:  Vesa is focused on the release of SPFx v1.10 before calendar year end, Waldek and Rencore just launched SPCAF online and Thomy’s org is holding it’s first hack-a-thon on Friday.
