This month's community call features presentations on Assignment Graph API (v1.0 will be released to Microsoft Teams EDU tenants within days), Dev Tips and Tricks with Microsoft Graph (save coding time with 2 VS Code Extensions), and Microsoft Graph Data Connect (extracting information at scale from Microsoft Graph).  Q&A throughout call in chat.  Microsoft Graph session recordings from Microsoft Build Conference are now available on demand.  The call was hosted by Brian T. Jackett (Microsoft) | @BrianTJackett.  Microsoft Presenters were Leif Brenne, Mei Tan and Nik Charlebois. Guest presenter Elio Struyf (Squarl).   This session was recorded on June 1, 2021.



Assignments API – specifically the Assignment Graph API v1.0 will be released in Microsoft Teams EDU tenants within days.  The APIs align to an instructor’s workflows around assignments – create, append resources, track submissions, grade and post results back to students.   Try out the APIs in the Graph Explorer tool.   Think of a Team as a Class, and assignments are the class activities/coursework.     


Dev Tips and Tricks with Microsoft Graph - Save time with 2 VS Code Extensions 1) MS Graph Completion (autocompletion for Microsoft Graph URLs)  and 2) Microsoft Graph Essentials (Preview) (CSS Completion and HTML web component attributes, if using MGT) inside Visual Studio Code.  Extensions created by presenter are available in Marketplace.  Microsoft Graph Essentials extension comes with snippets, code completion for CSS variables, and an extension pack. 


Microsoft Graph Data Connect - is about extracting information at scale from Microsoft Graph.  Starting with an architecture overview – learn about creating an Azure Data Factory, Azure storage account, and establishing the data pipeline connection between the Microsoft 365 dataset and storage account.  Once the pipeline is setup, define source and sink, trigger the sync and use Power BI to display data insights.
