PixelMill Doubles Down and Shares the Wealth
PixelMill was an early adopter of SPFx and our mantra of “Modern Experience First” inspires and compels us to embrace, experiment, and uncover new ways to integrate and refine. We’re honored to be mentioned by the SharePoint team as one of the providers delivering SharePoint integrations and working to bring existing and new offerings to Microsoft Teams that integrates with the general availability of using SPFx webparts direct in Teams tabs.
Shout out to our CEO and President Eric’s who’s recent SFPx brain child, an open source SPFx RSS Reader Webpart was accepted by the Microsoft PnP community. As the PnP community continues to preach, sharing is caring, and we’re excited to be part of the team discovering, building, and sharing new ways to leverage SPFx to bring more productivity and success to its users in open source initiatives like PnP.
