Published Feb 08 2022 01:50 AM 1,976 Views



In this installment of the weekly discussion revolving around the latest news and topics on Microsoft 365, hosts – Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft) | @vesajuvonen, Waldek Mastykarz (Microsoft) | @waldekm are joined by Toronto, Ontario, Canada-based Microsoft Cloud Solution Architect and MVP Alum, Hugo Bernier (Microsoft) | @bernierh. 


Topics discussed in this session:

  • Hugo’s Day job as a Cloud Solution Architect – focusing on Power Platform adoption - effectively teaching customers how to take advantage of products they already own in context of their existing IT infrastructure.   
  • Hugo’s Night job - working on community initiatives like Sharing is Caring events and on Samples repositories – testing, organizing, tagging SPFx extension and web part samples. 
  • Working with customers to fine tune their governance models.  Three tiers of governance.  IT led (Mission critical), IT supported (Infrastructure support), and Personal Productivity initiatives (no support).
  • Rationale for building solutions with Power Platform vs C#.   The question – are we building infrastructure capabilities once that will support many projects or building a local app? 
  • Latest focus – Dev containers (Docker).   Creating remote containers in VSCode that allow developers to open cloud-based samples in the environment they were built.  Use of Dev Containers / Codespaces will be demoed during the February 10th SPFx Community call.

We also covered 22 articles published by Microsoft and the PnP Community over the last week. 


This week:   

  • Waldek – focused on making it easier for Angular developers to build/modify LOB apps for (also) use in Teams.
  • Vesa – SPFx v1.14 updates to product, documentation, tutorials for upcoming release.
  • Hugo – hack-a-thon with large government customer, gearing up for Microsoft 365 Conference, April 5-7th, Las Vegas.
