Use multiple Node.js versions on your computer (and develop a SPFx webpart)

As developer, it often makes sense to have multiple versions of a framework installed on a single computer.

SPFx App webpart is blocked in various browsers

Recently, I stumbled across a strange behavior when running self-developed SPFx webparts in various browsers.

Send text and files (multipart/form-data) to an Azure Logic App and to SharePoint Online

Using an Azure Logic app is often a quick fix for small computing tasks. So my scenario is as follows: I want to use a form on a website to offer text fields and file upload. The submit button is intended to send the data to a Logic App. The Logic App receives the data and writes it to a SharePoint Online list and sends a notification if necessary. See the implementation here.
