There are numerous community calls for SharePoint development, and you can choose which of them you'd like to join based on your interest and availability. Each call has live demos from SharePoint Engineering, MVPs, or other community members.
If you are interested in doing a live demo in any of our community calls, please reach out by leaving a comment on this page and we'll get you a spot for 10-15 minutes for demonstrating your SharePoint development topic(s).
Do's & Dont's: Interested in presenting during one of the community calls? Keep in mind these are community calls. The focus of these demos should be on learning and topics beneficial to the community. Please refrain from commercial activities such as selling or promoting products or services. Commercial activities in the community calls are not well received by the community and in certain instances may result in stopping the demo early. In your request to present, please be descriptive about what you intend to show to avoid any confusion. If you are not sure if what you want to present is appropriate, just ask in the submission.

July 2019 Summer Camp Calls!
The official Microsoft-hosted community calls listed above are taking a break for the month of July 2019. The community has organized the following calls that you can join:
Currently these are recurring invites until the end of June 2019. They will be renewed after that for the next 12 months.
These calls will be changed to use Microsoft Teams immediately when it will support differences between attendees and presenters. Team broadcast is not also yet suitable as it does not support ad-hoc promotion of participants from an attendee to a presenter.
What’s the supportability statement around PnP open-source components and solutions?
Following statements apply across all of the SharePoint PnP assets, including samples, controls, component and solutions, like SharePoint Starter Kit or the PnP Provisioning Service.
- PnP assets are created by the Microsoft & the community
- PnP assets are maintained by the Microsoft & the community
- PnP uses supported and recommended techniques defined by Microsoft
- PnP is NOT a product and therefore it’s not supported by Premier Support or other official support channels, but if the experienced issue(s) is caused by out-of-the-box API, it falls on the normal support patterns from Microsoft side.
- PnP is supported in similar ways as other open source projects done by Microsoft with support from the community by the community
- There are numerous partners that utilize PnP within their solutions for customers. Support for this is provided by the Partner. When PnP material is used in deployments, we recommend being clear with your customer/deployment owner on the support model
