SharePoint Dev Weekly – Episode 46

SharePoint Dev Weekly is a videos series where Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft) and typically Waldek Mastykarz (Rencore) will have a weekly discussion on the latest SharePoint Dev topics. They will talk about few specific topics in the video and we’ll collect also other weekly SharePoint Dev news on these blog posts so that you can easily follow the most interesting engineering and community articles from one single location. This video was recorded on Monday 5th of August 2019 and Vesa was joined by Erwin van Hunen (Rencore) as the co-host this week while Waldek is enjoying well deserved family vacation.

  • Microsoft Graph API coverage and usage improvements – all new APIs will be provided through Microsoft Graph
  • Microsoft Flow and PowerApps integration improvements
