  1. Developing SPFx web parts for different section designs using CSS – see how to make changes to the styling of a web part by creating variants on office UI fabric – site theming within a web part.  Add a theme variant object to an SPFx web part.  Redefine the CSS variables within the web part’s event handler.  The theme variants are then available and called as CSS variables.
  2. Building SharePoint Migration Dashboard with SharePoint Framework – migrating from SharePoint on-prem to SPO?  Then you need this self-service migration dashboard.  Users can track migration details; the project team can run a script to import data from the open-source SharePoint Migration Assessment Tool (SMAT) that renders the data in a more readable format.  Simple to deploy – automated.   The dashboard is 1 SPFx web part built using Yeoman, React, Fluent UI, PnPjs.
  3. Getting started on using SharePoint Framework samples – PnP Samples are a means to kick start your development efforts.  The PnP Samples inventory includes nearly 450 validated samples contributed by 250 community members.  Tour the PnP Samples browser and learn about sort classifications including sort by compatibility.   See how the presenters find 2 web parts, evaluate compatibility for the target dev environment and learn tricks to avoid compatibility issues.
