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 US based, member of the Customer Engineering Team focused on developer enablement and on PnPjs project, Patrick Rodgers (Microsoft) | @mediocrebowler. 


Topics discussed in this session:

  • Patrick’s 10-year career journey at Microsoft and how got involved in PnP Community.
  • Why is PnPjs so successful?   What drives behavioral change and the probability of success?   
  • How is PnPjs V3.0 (V6.0) optimized? 
  • V3 theme or approach - “What do we put in the library vs what do we enable others to build.”
  • How is the perception of opensource changing? 
  • Can others join the PnPjs project team?   You bet - start by resolving an issue, define and own a capability, work with Julie @jfj1997 and Patrick @mediocrebowler.  

We also covered 15 articles published by Microsoft and the PnP Community over the last week. 


This week:   

  • Waldek – Finalizing the work around POC on how improve developer experience around building Teams apps with Angular, finalizing work with Alex on a cmdlet to evaluate SPFx dependency issues and recommend fixes, cool PRs for CLI for Microsoft 365 and on other ways to improve the developer experience.   
  • Vesa – catch up week while much of engineering is engaged in “Fix, Hack & Learn week.”
