The SharePoint / Office 365 Dev Patterns and Practices (PnP) initiative is changing the way many of us have been working with SharePoint On-prem and Online over the last few years. As a community-driven initiative, efforts extend far past tools, code, and examples. Now, additional resources are available, including engaging monthly and bi-weekly calls where anyone can join to learn and contribute information.
As a big advocate of the PnP initiative, I pulled together a compressed list of resources and invites to encourage participation. I will try to keep this up-to-date, but if you find issues, please let me know.
There is a monthly PnP community call and then specific calls for a few primary Special Interest Groups (SIG). Make sure these are not on your calendar, so you don’t fall behind.
- Invite: Monthly PnP Community Call – Takes place on the second Tuesday of the month at 8 am PST.
- Invite: Bi-weekly SIG for PnP CSOM Core / PowerShell Call – Takes place every two weeks on Wednesday at 7 am PST.
Monthly PnP Updates
There are two primary branches in the PnP source, including dev branches that contain all in-progress changes. Each month approved changes are merged into the master branch, and a post is published at https://dev.office.com/blogs/ where you find the all the details on the latest code drop.
PnP YouTube Channel
If you miss a community or SIG call, or if you are just joining and want to get caught up, no worries, the PnP team has been rather good at posting previous records (often within a day or so).
Microsoft Tech Community
A while back the PnP Yammer group was moved to Microsoft Tech Community.

- PnP PowerShell – Core / PowerShell SIG https://github.com/SharePoint/PnP-PowerShell
