Let's learn about the ever-evolving Microsoft 365 developer story. We'll look at Microsoft Teams extensibility and the Microsoft Graph, Office Add-ins and relatively new features like Adaptive Cards, Excel Custom Functions and Dynamic Data for SPFx web parts. We'll use a variety of tools, including Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code and open source tooling like Node.JS, Gulp and Yeoman. And we'll see how we can apply the SharePoint Framework development model to build solutions on top of Teams. This will be a demo-packed overview of the Office platform, some decisions you need to make, and the tremendous development opportunities on offer.

You will learn:

  • About the breadth of the Microsoft 365 development options
  • About some of the recently released and preview capabilities
  • To make decisions about the appropriate technology for each business requirement
