SharePoint Framework Summer 2019 Wish List

Wednesday, September 4, 2019 9:17 AM

I originally intended to write this post a mid-summer, but just never happened. Thankfully my wish list hasn’t changed for the SharePoint Framework (SFPx) since the spring of this year… wait, maybe that isn’t a good thing? Please don’t take these as complaints about the SharePoint Framework, the people who work on it and support it, or Microsoft as a whole. I’m a fan of the SharePoint Framework. I love how it is helping to bring traditional server-side SharePoint developers along to the modern world of web development and client-side customizations. So many parts of the toolchain and skills they are learning by working with SPFx are immediately transferrable to non-SharePoint projects. As you read through my list, you may notice a theme: time for some maturity. The SharePoint Framework has been available since early 2017 and every few weeks, we see Microsoft share graphs of constant growth in adoption during the community calls). With some strong momentum, personally I’d like to see Microsoft slow things down, hold a bug bash & focus on reliability.

JavaScript + SharePoint Framework Summer Camp Calls - July 3 & July 18, 2019!

Monday, July 1, 2019 2:30 PM

Microsoft regularly hosts three different community calls under the SharePoint PnP program on various topics. However, during the month of July 2019 schedules are getting a bit out of control with various vacations where no one from the Microsoft side can host the calls and start the recordings. So, they are taking the month of July 2019 off.I volunteered to host two calls in July for those of us who don’t want to miss the JavaScript & SharePoint Framework Special Interest Group calls! These will be similar to the Microsoft-hosted calls, but just hosted and run by the community. We’re calling these Summer Camp Calls!

Mastering the SharePoint Framework - Sprint 16 adds SPFx with Teams, SPA's and Tons of Updates

Saturday, May 4, 2019 7:41 AM

I’m excited to share this latest update to my course, Mastering the SharePoint Framework for developers. This update, packaged as sprint 16, includes one new chapter and a LOT of updates. When I originally planned out sprint 16, I intended to record a lot of new content. However when the SPFx v1.8.0 release came out there were enough changes to SPFx that I decided to go back and update the course, including adding some new lessons, completely re-recording existing lessons and updating quite a few lessons (both video & notes).

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 9:42 AM

In my last post, Securing an Azure Function App with Azure AD - Works with SharePoint Framework!, I showed how you can secure a REST API deployed as an Azure Function App using Azure Active Directory (AzureAD). This comes in quite handy when you want to secure some custom server-side business logic that”s called from a SharePoint Framework (SPFx) client-side solution. The SPFx docs show how to use APIs with permissions to the Microsoft Graph. This post will explain how to add custom permissions to the AzureAD application that is used to secure your Azure Function.
