In this PnP Web Cast we concentrated on the Office Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) Special Interest Group (SIG) for JavaScript. This is relatively new SIG and virtual team in the PnP initiative which concentrates on JavaScript techniques. Objective of this work is to produce a modular, flexible and developer focused JavaScript library for simplifying interactions with SharePoint and also with other Office 365 services in future. This development is done with modern web tooling, including TypeScript, Node.js, Gulp and other similar tooling. This means that secondary objective for this work is to introduce this tooling also for classic SharePoint developers.

Idea and concept for the PnP Special Interest Groups was introduced in February 2016. You can read more details around the concept from following blog post at Introducing Office Dev PnP Office Hours and Special Interest Groups
