I’m excited to head back to the 365 EduCon (SPFest) conference in Chicago 2023 at the end of October presenting a couple half-day workshops & few sessions for SharePoint Framework, React, & Azure developers!
Half-day Workshop: Developers! Learn the SharePoint Framework to Customize and Extend Microsoft 365 apps
The best way you can customize and extend your SharePoint site is by using the SharePoint Framework (SPFx). This model is the way you customize and extend the SharePoint modern experience for SharePoint Online, but that’s not all because now you can use it to create apps for Microsoft Teams, Viva Connections, and Office apps.
In this half-day session, you’ll see how to get up your dev environment running in just a few minutes & then we’ll start building! By the end of the day, you’ll know how to build web parts, single-page apps (SPAs), extensions, integrate data from SharePoint and external sources, and so much more! Walk away with a ZIP filled with sample projects & tons of resources!
Half-day Workshop: Accelerate Your Teams App Development Journey - Build High-Quality Apps with Confidence
This half-day session covers how to build tabs, bots, and message extensions for Microsoft Teams, while also including Microsoft 365 apps. We will explore various development tools such as TeamsFX, the Teams Toolkit, YO Teams, the Dev Portal, and SPFx, giving you everything you need to get started building your own Teams apps. Whether you’re a seasoned developer or new to the game, this half-day session will serve as your on-ramp to building MS Teams apps.
Breakout session: GitHub Actions - Automate all the things for your Microsoft 365 and Azure Projects!
GitHub Actions enable developers to automate repetitive and complex manual tasks. In this session, you’ll learn how you can use GitHub Actions to create automation workflows including robust CI & CD processes to build, test & deploy solutions. But we won’t stop there. Learn how to instrument all sorts of things, optimize your workflows, deploy Azure resources with zero credentials, create custom actions, and more! Regardless if you’re building SharePoint Framework projects, Azure solutions, or something else.
