Yesterday, on June 20th, the Insider Dev Tour (see insiderdevtour.com) took place in our home town Vienna. It’s a roadshow for software developers in the Microsoft universe delivering the latest news about Windows, Azure, Office, Graph, AI technology and more. I enjoyed being part of the event along with my fellow MVP colleagues and the Windows Development community.
Microsoft provides a bunch of cloud services, tools, and resources that provide tools for developing an intelligent Bot service. To get started, check out the free "Developer’s Guide to Building AI Applications" eBook and download it here!
Are you using tools as Fiddler or Postman for testing HTTP Requests? Well, if you are already working with Visual Studio Code, try out the cool REST Client extension!
Visual Studio Code (currently, Version 1.22 is available) is a very cool developer tool providing a modern and fast code editor with a bunch of extensions. With extensions as Code-Runner, it’s easy to run a code file or active text directly from the VS Code text editor. Check out this quick description how to configure and use Code Runner.
Want to cleanup unused apps in your Azure Active Directory? Well, that’s easy – but how to accomplish that if the Delete option is inactive? See the quick solution here.
When an automated task or an app needs to access data from Office 365, you need to create an app in the tenant’s Azure Active Directory (AAD). For having full control, e.g. for deleting objects in AAD, a so called Service Principal Name (SPN) can be used. That is similar to a Global Admin in Office 365, but just for apps and usually with a predefined expiration date. Which is good. Or?
PowerApps are very powerful and simple to use.Through the integration in SharePoint Online lists, we now can create our custom forms within a SharePoint site and add additional features as calculations, modifications and even visualizations. See here, how to integrate a map for showing a location instantly directly in SharePoint without any coding!
Serverless Computing is popular. With Microsoft Azure, IT people can concentrate on their tasks and apps without taking care of managing any server infrastructure. One of the key Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) components from Microsoft is the new, extensive Azure Functions service. Learn how to use Azure Functions with the cost-free Azure Serverless Computing Cookbook!
Developers who are not familiar with the new tooling for creating SPFx apps now get support by the new Visual Studio Extension for SharePoint Framework, available in the Visual Studio marketplace.
Working with Visual Studio Code? Then check out the Azure Functions extension for Visual Studio Code at the Visual Studio Marketplace!
If one of your coworkers created a LogicApp some months ago and you want to "de-personalize" the connections used in a flow, you can modify the settings easily – if you know how to.
Many of us have a Microsoft Account (MSA) that we use for Microsoft Azure or similar Microsoft services. But in reality, with Office 365, we’re used to work with our Work-or-School Account (AAD). So, often it is helpful to forward all mails from one MSA to the work account primarily used. This can be accomplished easily!
