About the Session:
Transitioning to Modern SharePoint and Office 365 Cloud Development
Many traditional SharePoint On Premise developers have been caught off guard with the fast pace of changes to the SharePoint ecosystem in recent years. Whether it's the rapid adoption of Office 365 or the growing investment in cloud based infrastructure and services it can all feel very foreign to many developers still using some of the same development approaches and tools first pioneered in SharePoint 2007.

In this talk we will break down traditional SharePoint solutions such as features, webparts, workflows, event receivers, and timer jobs and discuss how those translate to their modern equivalents in Office 365 and the cloud. We'll not only touch on popular topics such as the role of SPFX, PowerApps, and Flow but also other key Azure Services such as Logic Apps, Azure Functions, and Hybrid Data Connections. You'll gain an understanding for the growing role of new APIs such as Microsoft Graph, various nuances with authentication, and the importance of hybrid environments and accessing on premise data. Along the way you'll discover some of the tools, techniques, and approaches that will be invaluable as you decide what part of your toolbelt will be the most important to upgrade!
