We are happy to share a new set of videos in the Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices Channel 9 video blog related on the PnP Core Component. Purpose of this training package is to provide more insights on the key capabilities in the PnP Core Component, which is available in the Nuget Gallery. PnP Core Component is additional abstraction layer on top of native SharePoint CSOM and REST interfaces and it simplifies development with managed code (.NET).
There is different versions of the PnP Core Component for SharePoint Online and for SharePoint 2013 on-premises. SharePoint 2016 version for on-premises will be released as part of the PnP monthly release on May 2016.
As part of this initial version of the training package, we are providing set of videos and presentations, which concentrates on different use cases of the PnP Core Component. We are also looking for creating hands-on lab materials for each of the modules, if there’s interest and demand for this material.
Here’s full list of modules included in this training package:
- Introduction to PnP Core Component
- Basic operations with PnP Core Component
- Remote Timer Job framework
- Authentication Manager
- Site Provisioning Framework
- PnP PowerShell for scripting with Core component
- How to contribute to PnP initiative
