The Global Office 365 Developer Bootcamp is a free, one-day training event led by Microsoft MVPs with support from Microsoft and local community leaders. The bootcamps will provide hands-on labs for deep learning, and a comprehensive view of all key technologies and products on the Office 365 platform. Developers can apply these learnings to their products or solutions to achieve more right away.
Melbourne is hosting the Global Office 365 developer bootcamp with track dedicated to developers. You are free to attend topics all around Office 365 extensibility.
Technologies covered: Microsoft Graph, SharePoint Framework, Microsoft Teams, Office Add-ins, Connectors and Actionable Messages, and more.
Microsoft Team is the hub for teamwork in Office 365 that brings together conversations, files and tools. Teams give people a single place to communicate and collaborate and also allows the team members to customise Team with apps, bots (T-Bot, Who-Bot), tabs, Planner, Forms, Flow etc. as per their needs. There is an enormous number of out-of-the-box extensibilities exist within Team. But what if you need more features that are not in the MS Team but is essential for your company, team, or project? – this is what we will discuss during the session. The session will include some updates on the newest additions to the development and extension for the MS Team. We will also demonstrate how you can leverage the existing resources from Microsoft and build the app you need for your business.
SharePoint Framework: Best Use of the New Capabilities and Free Resources
he SharePoint Framework is the current model for building rich client-side Web Part and SharePoint customizations. Since GA, there has been many samples and solutions developed by the community that are very helpful and free to use. If you need a new Custom Web Part for your business, why not reuse some of these great resources?
In the session, we will demonstrate how we can reuse some of the existing resources with little effort, how we can change those & deploy and in general, how we can speed-up our SPFx learning & development. We will also step through some of the new capabilities that have been announced recently. Demo includes:
Deploying Intranet in 15 mins – containing 20+ custom WebParts and Extensions (Personalised Quick Link, Emails, Share price, Weather, WorldTime, People Directory etc)
Dynamic Form WebPart – Creating Form from any custom list in a few minutes.
While Office 365 adoption continues to grow, some organisations are struggling to understand how to move past the traditional SharePoint and intranet-centric view of the world, and truly leverage all of the latest and greatest technology Microsoft has to offer. Microsoft Teams is a new way to focus on collaboration and communication, giving project teams and individuals the flexible features they need to get work done. This is the hub for teamwork in Office 365 that brings together conversations, files and tools. MS Teams gives people a single place to communicate and collaborate and also allows the team members to customize Team with apps, bots, tabs etc. as per their needs.
The latest version of the @types/sharepoint is throwing the the following error: Error – typescript – node_modules\@types\sharepoint\index.d.ts(3604,17): error TS1005: ‘,’ expected. Error – typescript – node_modules\@types\sharepoint\index.d.ts(70,42): error TS2314: Generic type ‘ListItem<T, any>’ requires 2 type argument(s).
After spending sometime trying to fix the issue, I found the current version of the @types/sharepoint is expecting the new TypeScript Compiler. Issue reported
If you already have installed the latest version, uninstall the version from the solution: npm uninstall @types/sharepoint
Use the last working version (2013.1.6): npm install @firstname.lastname@example.org --save-dev
Note: These are the versions that are available during the time of this post.
