Azure SIG
Line of Business Solutions in SharePoint Online: Leveraging Azure and the New SharePoint Framework (SPFX)
Presented by Jason Ditzel
10/10/2017 5:45 PM

Join us for the October 2017 .NET SIG as Jason Ditzel demonstrates how to use Azure Web Jobs and SPFX WebParts to implement SharePoint Online line-of-business solutions.

SharePoint Timer Jobs are a common pattern for scheduling automated tasks, such as updating SharePoint lists and libraries with external line-of-business data throughout the day or overnight. For on-premise versions of SharePoint, developers typically write timer jobs as C# .dlls installed on the SharePoint Farm Servers. But with SharePoint Online we no longer have access to farm servers, so SharePoint Timer Jobs must be implemented differently. We will show you how to leverage Azure Functions to implement the Timer Jobs pattern with SharePoint Online.

Additionally, we’ll review the new SharePoint Framework, and show how we can build SharePoint Online WebParts written in JavaScript to leverage the results of this automatic processing.
