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 California, US based Power Platform Community Program Manager, David Warner (Microsoft) | @DavidWarnerII.


Topics discussed in this session:

  • Thoughts on swimming into his 4th week as Community Lead in Microsoft’s Power Platform Team.
  • Bringing the Microsoft 365 PnP digital Recognition (Credly) program from idea to reality.  The program’s target audience, qualification, validation, badges, employer recognition, program growth and co organizers.  
  • Growing the mental mindset of the Sharing is Caring program including training events and a gem - the Buddy System.   
  • Success comes both with understanding just enough about every product and service under the Microsoft 365 umbrella to assemble a solution and with knowing experts to ask for help.
  • Three tips to anyone wanting to get started in the PnP Community.

We also covered 9 articles published by Microsoft and the PnP Community over the last week. 


This week:   

  • Waldek – previewing POC to Angular Devs wanting to build Teams tabs with SSO, released new commend for CLI for Microsoft 365 to validate SPFx projects, gearing up to deliver demo with Anoop Tatti (Content + Cloud) during April 12th Microsoft 365 Platform call on building a wellbeing solution with Teams and Viva Connections, addressing still more PRs for CLI for Microsoft 365, and prepping for Microsoft Tech Days on May 5th.  
  • Vesa – prepping for Microsoft Build – May 24–26, 2022, and for the next release SPFx v1.15 beta with List extensibility (custom forms for creating, viewing and editing an item) capability.
