Build a diverse M365 development team and tackle talent development head on

Microsoft 365 extensibility has used web development tools and languages since the release of SharePoint Framework. With these changes in tooling the developer skills required to extend Microsoft 365 accelerated. The available developer talent hasn’t kept pace with demand.

So how can you approach building a developer team for Microsoft 365?

In this session Wes and Paul will talk about how a clear interviewing process, job guide and development framework for skills and behaviours can help you build a diverse and talented developer team.

Deconstructing Custom Connectors

PowerPlatform Connectors unlock your data, allowing “makers” to build new experiences. But how do they work? Go beyond the wizard and learn how to write, deploy and use custom connectors in your organization.

In this session Paul Schaeflein and Daniel Laskewitz will discuss the details of connectors, from “back-end” API code to OpenAPI documents to web pages in the platform.
