Enhancing SPFx Projects: Harnessing Live Data Integration

Session Abstract

Level 200. SharePoint Framework (SPFx) opens the door to crafting stunning, contemporary solutions for Office 365, Microsoft Teams, and Viva. Yet, the true magic happens when these solutions seamlessly connect to real-time data sources. In this exciting journey, we'll dive deep into the art of connecting SPFx to SharePoint and Microsoft Graph, unleashing the full potential of your creations. We'll master the art of harnessing REST APIs to forge direct links with these data sources. Moreover, we'll unveil the secrets of PnPJs and the Microsoft Graph toolkit (MGT), transforming your development process and supercharging the performance of your SPFx solutions. Join us as we bridge the gap between innovation and data, making your SPFx projects come alive with real-time information. Elevate your solutions to a whole new level of excellence and impact.
