Office 365 and SharePoint Community Go-To Resources


The great thing about technology is that feeling connected is literally a click away and the Office 365 / SharePoint community is no different. Now, don't get me wrong, conferences, user groups, and social meetups are a great way to stay connected, but on those days when you're stuck at your desk I've got just the solution.

The following are the top 10 resources that I follow to stay in the loop on what is going on in the Office 365 / SharePoint community. I will readily share that not only did I have a tough time narrowing down my list to just 10, but also that this list constantly changes as community involvement waxes and wanes, new members / resources spring up, while others slow down. I hope you will find this line up to be either a good start, or a great way to help fill out your current references.


  1. The SharePoint Dev Ecosystem YouTube channel:
  2. Office Development blogs:
  3. Waldek Mastykarz’s blog. If you want to know what is going on with SPFx development, this is your spot:
  4. Mikael Svenson’s blog. Mikael posts like a fiend and all his findings are fascinating:
  5. Smashing Magazine. Some of the best bleeding edge web development insights:
  6. Andrew Connell’s blog. Andrew is a leader of the pack of SPFx trainers and his material around SPFx is outstanding:
  7. SharePoint Team’s blog. Straight from MS:
  8. Marc Anderson’s blog. Marc tells you how it is.
  9. Chris O’Brien’s blog. An outstanding developer who provides in-depth posts, meaning long, in the right way:
  10. Stefan Bauer’s blog. Stefan’s design skillset when combined with his mastery of Sass is amazing and he shares his insights!

And of course, I'd be honored to have you add me and/or my company’s blog to your list.

What do you think?

Of course, this list could go on and on, but what do you think? Have you used any of these resources and if so, what do you think? If you were to create your own list of Top 10 resources, what would you have included? Let me know your thoughts below or connect with me directly at @ericoverfield.

What are your go to resources? I couldn't include them all. Let's not forget how I learned Display Templates and more by way of Elio Struyf:




This is a great resource list however focused on the dev community which is always popular for resources.... am amazed you got down to 11  (with Elio's).


So my question to other is can we create a top 10 list of more difficult subjects like Adoption, or Governance??  Maybe for the pro community top 5 might be easier....


Thoughts anyone??



My top resource / guru from governance is:


Sue Hanley:

She normally writes white papers, blogs, and articles for others. The content is amazing.


Joanne Klein:

Joanne recently became a MVP and the content she has been spearheading is outstanding. A needed addition to the MVP community.
