    The Discussion

    • User profile image

      Extremely helpful to me (and I'm sure many others!) for contributing code to one of the PnP repositories!

      Very different "flow" than some of us are used to (coming from TFS or single user personal git repositories), but understand it now thanks to this video.

      Thanks for putting this together!
