ESPC16 Feedback – Part 2


Hello everyone,

Today I will continue on the subject of the previous post by talking about tools that I’ve seen in action at the ESPC16.

QUnit :

JavaScript library for Unit tests:

 

jQuery Mockjax :

JavaScript library for mocking Ajax calls:

 

Selenium webdriver :

Available as a Nuget package, it allows ,among other things, to do UI tests by simulating different browsers:

 

Approval Test :

A tool allowing you to make tests on .Net code, very useful also to refactor existing code!

 

Swagger :

A tools that helps you design, build, document, and consume your RESTful APIs.

 

Graph Explorer:

A tools helping you to create your graph requests

 

Don’t forget that you can find many sessions video in the resource section of the ESPC website: https://www.sharepointeurope.com/resource-centre/

 

Hope this helps !

Christopher.

ESPC16 Feedback

espc16

Hello everyone,

As I told you in the previous post, the ESPC16 conference was full of information! Both for announcements made and for the tools used during the different sessions.

I will try to collect my notes on the various subjects to share them with you.

Some statements:

  • ContentTypeHub : there are a lot of features in SharePoint, and not all of them are good
  • Feature pack planned to be release every 3 or 6 month
  • Bulk download of files is planned
  • Add link as a document in document library is planned
  • Sooner or later save site as template will disappear
  • Upcoming SharePoint integration means you’ll be able to launch PowerApps directly from the SharePoint mobile app.
  • “It’s build on #SharePoint because I can ! ” Wrong reason!
  • “Data are more secured in the cloud than onprem !”
  • Power Apps : Only 500 requests by minute allowed by connection.
  • Stop using Appweb!

Technology to follow:

Another important point, Microsoft is listening to our experiences, so if you want to provide feedback , go to https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/

Enjoy your reading!
