Demos delivered in this session

  • Contributors Corner - GitHub Contributions using the VS Code Web Editor – interactively step through the creation of your first Pull Request using a new simplified GitHub contribution tool. Create an account in GitHub and scan the Barcode from demo to pull up a page and repository to edit. Open VS Code in Web Editor, create a (Markdown) file, commit (save) changes to GitHub, open and update Pull Request (PR) template and submit your PR!

  • Create an event page in SharePoint with SharePoint Spaces and custom Lists – see how Spaces, 4 lists, a timer web part and a quick links web part for UI supported by an Events list in the backend are blended to create a sharp Event page in SharePoint.  Step through the Spaces embed, column formatting, list and list view set up for Sessions, Tracks, People and About Event. Informational pop ups, event filtering, registration and more.  

  • Using Randomization with List Formatting – render a randomly generated stack of informational cards with the last card in the list showing up at the top of the stack.  Whenever one visits the page hosting this list view - a “randomly shown fact card” will render. Randomization is based on the calculation of time in milliseconds - Number(@now) function. The resulting value is used to select an image.     

Thank you for your work. Samples are often showcased in Demos.    Request a Demo spot on the call
