Hubify your root site collection in Office 365

Modern Office 365 has led to a lot of confusion about what to do with the root site collection your Office 365 environment. Communication sites and Office 365 Group sites are new site templates created by Microsoft to provide a brand new publishing and editing experience in Office 365. However, your root site collection in Office 365 is a classic SharePoint site and cannot be converted to a Modern site (yet?). A user voice exists to support this, I suggest you  vote here! So what are we to do with the default root site collection in your tenant? Why not give it some meaning and Hubify it!

Auto Provision Office 365 sites in a Hub Site using Site Designs


Last week Microsoft started releasing hub sites for Office 365. Hub sites are a long awaited feature in the new Modern Office 365 experience. The introduction of Communication sites and Office 365 Groups sites has brought about a new flat architecture for building sites within SharePoint. While sub sites are still available, it is now becoming common practice to build new sites as separate site collections (Groups & Communication sites). However, when you build sites without a hierarchy, it's often difficult to understand which sites may be connected or even how the sites are connected. Hub sites will fix this issue by allowing admins to create a "hub" or a collection of sites under a single global navigation with some very cool content roll-up features.

SharePoint Framework - Don't fear the toolchain


Change is good. Being prepared for change is even better. Recently, I put out a poll online to see whether or not developers have adopted the SharePoint Framework yet. Many responses for not adopting SPFx included that the new development pattern requires a complete new toolchain for development.
