SharePoint Extensibility is Growing Up with the SharePoint Framework
SharePoint has a large user ecosystem that is supported by 200,000 organizations and also more than 1 million developers. To help these groups get the most out of the platform, Microsoft has announced the SharePoint Framework.
The extensibility framework will be rolled-out in stages and will come to Office 365 customers in the First Release group starting this summer and will be made available to existing SharePoint sites at a later date.

“Inside Microsoft Teams” is a webcast series, now in Season 4 for IT pros hosted by Microsoft Product Manager, Stephen Rose. Stephen & his guests comprised of customers, partners, and real-world experts share best practices of planning, deploying, adopting, managing, and securing Teams.

The following features will be coming this summer:

The company hopes that by providing developers additional tools with the new framework that they can continue to extend the reach of SharePoint and further cement its role as the central hub of all collaboration inside of a company. When you pair this information to the road map that Microsoft released today as well, it’s going to be a busy time for SharePoint teams.
