Just a quick post of the slide deck I used for my talk last night at the SharePoint User Group. I talked about the changes for “modern sites” in SharePoint, and looked at things from the end-user and developer point of view (with respect to the SharePoint Framework). The link to the full deck is below.
I used this slide to speculate why I think Microsoft are motivated to change things like the “create or edit page” experience in SharePoint
What I’m getting at is that many end-users (especially those who only use SharePoint occasionally) struggle with the current experience - using the ribbon, adding and configuring web parts and so on. Things are just too damn hard for SharePoint newbies.
And so we have a new set of web parts, and a new page editing experience. New web parts include the Highlighted Content web part, a PowerBI web part, a Yammer Embed web part, Office 365 video, and simplified text/image editors.
