  1. Running the CLI for Microsoft 365 in Azure Container Instances orchestrated by Logic Apps – or Flow in Power Automate.  Step through how the Azure Container Instance is created with the specified managed identity.  Docker enables you to bundle a pre-configured version of CLI for Microsoft 365 together with all its required dependencies and also is used to orchestrate containers.   Purpose of configuration is to run scripts or reports against your tenant.

  2. Advanced Page Properties web part solution – when the normal page properties web part is not enough, this new Advanced Page Properties web part delivers more.  New properties supporting theme variants, capsule format for list options, support for image fields, for links, for currency, and for dates.  Tour the code for tracking available properties for drop downs, tracking property selections and parameters for refreshing and rendering the data. 

  3. SharePoint Framework 1.12.1 new features – support for Node v12, Gulp 4, Microsoft Teams SDK v1.8 and for creating Microsoft Teams meeting apps.  Demos – 1) Increased access to page structure and context to avoid DOM dependency (web part detects DOM structure and selects output size to fit allotted space) and 2) SPFx support for Complex Microsoft Teams solutions (manifest included in Package to synchronize with Teams App catalog).
