SharePoint Development Community (PnP) – December 2019 update
SharePoint Dev Ecosystem / SharePoint Patterns and Practices (PnP) December 2019 update is out with a summary of the latest guidance, samples, and solutions from SharePoint engineering or from the community for the community. This article is a summary of all the different areas and topics around the SharePoint Dev ecosystem during the past month.
What is SharePoint Patterns & Practices (PnP)?
SharePoint PnP is a nick-name for SharePoint Dev Ecosystem activities coordinated by SharePoint engineering. SharePoint PnP is a community-driven open source initiative where Microsoft and external community members are sharing their learning’s around implementation practices for SharePoint and Office 365. Active development and contributions happen in GitHub by providing contributions to the samples, reusable components, and documentation. PnP is owned and coordinated by SharePoint engineering, but this is work done by the community for the community.
The initiative is currently facilitated by Microsoft, but we have multiple community members as part of the PnP Core team (see team details in end of the article) and we are looking to extend the Core team with more community members. Notice that since this is open source community initiative, there’s no SLAs for the support for the samples provided through GitHub. Obviously, all officially released components and libraries are under official support from Microsoft. You can use the SharePoint Developer group in the Microsoft Tech Community for providing input and to ask any questions about the existing materials or report issues using the sp-dev-docs issue list.
