Participating in the SharePoint / Office 365 Dev Patterns and Practices (PnP) Community Initiative


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.

Community Calls

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.

If my dates/times are off, you will find the master resource at the Microsoft PnP landing page.

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 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).

There is also a filtered set of playlists that help organize the different videos in easier to digest threads.

Microsoft Tech Community

A while back the PnP Yammer group was moved to Microsoft Tech Community.

Primary Repositories

If you still have questions, most of the links above may be in one of the references with additional details.

Happy coding.
