Microsoft Ignite 2018 – Office Developer Announcements

As the dust settles on Microsoft Ignite for another year I’m left going back over my notes and recalling discussions I had for all those key announcements, advice and snippets of gold that will have a real impact for Office developers.

If you are looking for a high level list of announcements made at the conference, the Ignite Book of News is a good place to start although it doesn’t cover many of the announcements that were made in the Office Developer area – this book covers a lot of the Azure announcements, which most Office developers will have a mild interest in (we have to host our code somewhere!)

Here’s some of my favourite announcements:

Do more with new upcoming SharePoint development capabilities announced at Ignite 2018

  • Call Microsoft Graph and Web APIs and deploy Extensions across your SharePoint sites
  • Deploy your web parts and application pages to Microsoft Teams
  • Connect across components with dynamic data capabilities
  • Deliver complete applications with application pages
  • Harness more of SharePoint with new Microsoft Graph APIs

Microsoft Graph @ Ignite 2018

  • Managed access to Microsoft Graph (data connect to bulk export to Azure subscription)
  • Notifications API
  • Dynamics is now in Microsoft Graph
  • New PowerApps templates
  • Security API
  • Microsoft Teams, Messages, Calendars, Files, and Folders

Microsoft Authentication Library (MSAL)

  • In preview but suitable for production use
  • Capable of reaching both v1 and v2 services
  • MSAL JavaScript library for serverless implicit flow scenarios

I thought this years conference was very well run and the volume of people moving about the conference centre wasn’t overwhelming. I had a lot of fun meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends. It’s great to have such knowledgeable Microsoft staff accessible on the expo hall floor (both from a Marketing and Engineering side) to discuss particular scenarios, technologies, ad bounce ideas off.
