    Using Graph API in SharePoint with external users

    Posted 9 July 2018 12:00 AM by Cristian Zaragoza, SharePoint Development Team Lead @ ClearPeople

    Recently I've been working in a project with Modern SharePoint, SPFx Framework, React, Fabric UI, Graph API, and all these cool and modern stuff that Microsoft is pushing SharePoint developers to use. For a "classic" developer like me, this conversion from the "old good times" of the known Feature Framework where you have the control of everything, to this new way of re-doing all is a challenge. Sometimes you enjoy it a lot, and you like the way you can do so cool things in such an easy way, but other times, having to trust in third APIs, is rather than annoying.

    Posted 9 July 2018 12:00 AM by Katya Linossi, Managing Director and Co-founder @ ClearPeople

    I recently met with a friend for lunch before she jetted off to her next destination (Berlin) as a panel member of a blockchain event. We spent some of our time discussing that there is a lot of hype about blockchain but not as much take-up as many predicted.

    The Future of Microsoft Teams, Office 365 Groups and Yammer

    Posted 15 June 2018 12:00 AM by Peter Harrison, Business Productivity Specialist @ ClearPeople
