Microsoft Learning: Introduction to customizing and extending SharePoint

SharePoint is an extensible platform you can customize and extend with the SharePoint Framework and multiple APIs available to developers. In this module, developers learn what customizations and extensibility points are available to them with the SharePoint Framework, and determine if it's right for you.

I work with Microsoft Learning to publish & maintain multiple self-paced learning modules related to Microsoft 365. These modules are primarily used as self-paced study resources for developers preparing to take the MS-600 exam , the only prerequisite to achieve the Microsoft 365 Certified: Developer Associate certification. This is one of those modules.
