DAVIS, Calif. - Oct. 17, 2019 - PRLog -- This week, Microsoft 365 developers from around the world gathered at Microsoft Headquarters in Redmond for the Fluid+SPFx vNext Dev Kitchen. This invitation-only event for a select group of Microsoft partners, customers, and Microsoft MVPs allowed attendees to get a sneak peek and provide direct feedback on potential future direction.

PixelMill's President, Co-founder, and Microsoft Regional Director & Microsoft MVP, Eric Overfield joined the #FluidSPFxDevKitchen and hackathon competition and walked away with first prize along with his partner David Warner II from Catapult Systems for their solution.

This is Eric's fourth DevKitchen, and he is thrilled to join past winners with his success. "I have always admired Microsoft's demonstrated interest in gathering direct feedback on future technologies and have been honored to have been invited to participate. Joining the ranks of past DevKit winners is truly an honor," said Mr. Overfield.

While what is presented and developed during this event is confidential, past events' results have proven to be quite fruitful. Product groups, including SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, and OneDrive, present new features to the attendees and sessions follow, allowing the attendees to build technology demonstrations over the course of two to three days. Participants then present their solutions to each other and a group of judges who then award the top three solutions for the event. The public can look forward to announcements of what the DevKit attendees experienced at Microsoft's upcoming conference Ignite, this November.
