ADM 202 – All You Need to Know for Automated SharePoint Site Provisioning with PnP
Provisioning sites and assets in Office 365 and in particular SharePoint in repeatable, reliable method used to require Visual Studio, developers, and the feature framework. Well no more! Using Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP), it no longer takes VS or developers to create deployment packages.
In this session, we will look into the provisioning toolset found within PnP to provision columns, content types, list templates, list and library instances, branding and file assets and even metadata and more all with XML provisioning templates and PowerShell. This demo-heavy session with the PowerShell scripts and sample provisioning templates will help you jumpstart your next SharePoint project using future friendly provisioning methodologies. Being a developer is not required, although developers are encouraged to attend to not be left behind.
Benefits of this Session:

  • Learn how PnP provides provision tools
  • See how to provision SharePoint assets without a developer
  • Get the reusable PowerShell scripts to start your next project

DEV 105 – Get Started with TypeScript Now
The SharePoint Framework is the future of SharePoint development and customization yet its underlying language, TypeScript, is unknown to most developers. Let’s fix that now.
This session is your chance to learn what TypeScript is all about and will get you started on your path to becoming a TypeScript pro as quickly as possible. TypeScript is a solid, well-defined language that will enable you to build not only SharePoint Framework projects but any large web-based project, more quickly and easily in a far more maintainable way than you could achieve with JavaScript alone. We will also see how we can translate our existing JavaScript to TypeScript as well to help jumpstart your next project.
Session Benefits:

  • TypeScript language overview
  • Sample TypeScript code and projects
  • Learn how TypeScript related to the SharePoint Framework

 
Hope to catch you in the Windy City!

What? Anchor links now work in #SharePoint site navigation! This fix snuck in and I completely missed it. Use them to create a TOC for long pages or cross link between pages. They work in text or quick links web parts & nav too! https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/create-and-use-modern-pages-on-a-sharepoint-site-b3d46deb-27a6-4b1e-87b8-df851e503dec#bkmk_pageanchors
