Microsoft have fixed column creation names in the modern library experience!

If you’ve ever been to one of my SharePoint Saturday or Conference sessions, you’ll know how much I like to beat on about Internal Name Pain.

SharePoint Saturday London – Imperial College

I had the distinct pleasure of speaking at a much closer SharePoint Saturday to home than all of the others I’ve attended in the past.

MDS Enabled Sub-sites and Display Templates

Last year I released some of my templates for JSlink onto the SPCSR repository, but I was never totally happy with the solution for MDS (Minimal Download Strategy) enabled sites.

JSLink Display Templates and External Data

One of the questions raised during my recent session at SUGUK Cambridge, was whether or not JSLink could be used to style External List Data.
