Unleash Your Development Potential with Containers in the Microsoft 365 Universe!

Session Abstract

Level 200. Microsoft 365 development, with its SharePoint web parts, dynamic extensions, Teams apps, MS Graph, and PowerShell wizardry, is evolving rapidly. Keeping up with changing API and Framework versions can be a frantic scramble. But here's the game-changer: Containers. Containers embed your development environment within project files, ensuring the perfect setup every time. They seamlessly integrate with GitHub Codespaces and Docker Desktop. Join our session to unlock the secrets of container configurations for SharePoint development, all with just a few files. It's time to elevate your development journey with the magic of containers!

Note to event organizers

We will cover what containers are, and build multiple samples using Docker containers and GitHub Codespaces. We'll also show the pattern to simplify customizing a container for a specific set of environment variables, like NodeJS version and SPFX version.
