Migrate SharePoint JavaScript customizations to SharePoint Framework

Migrate SharePoint JavaScript customizations to SharePoint Framework

Migrate existing Script Editor Web Part customizations to the SharePoint Framework

In the past you might have built a SharePoint customization using nothing else than JavaScript, HTML and maybe some CSS and images. Your customization would be embedded on the page using either the Content or the Script Editor Web Part and would contain the necessary HTML and references to its resources. With the recent release of the SharePoint Framework you wonder what the easiest way is to migrate your customization so that it can be used on modern team sites.

STALKER TRAILER – New Restoration 2017

STALKER TRAILER – New Restoration 2017

One of the most immersive and rarefied experiences in the history of cinema, Andrei Tarkovsky’s STALKER embarks on a metaphysical journey through an enigmatic post-apocalyptic landscape. A hired guide – the „Stalker“ of the title – leads a writer and a scientist into the heart of the Zone, the restricted site of a long-ago disaster, where the three men eventually zero in on the Room, a place rumored to fulfill one’s most deeply held desires. Adapting a science-fiction novel by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, and making what would be his final Soviet feature, Tarkovsky created a challenging and visually stunning work, his painstaking attention to material detail and sense of organic atmosphere further enriched by this vivid new restoration. At once a religious allegory, a reflection of contemporary political anxieties, and a meditation on film itself-among many other interpretations – Stalker envelops the viewer by opening up a multitude of possible meanings. Restored by Mosfilm from a 2k scan of the original negative.

AI programs exhibit racial and gender biases, research reveals

The latest paper shows that some more troubling implicit biases seen in human psychology experiments are also readily acquired by algorithms. […] The AI system was more likely to associate European American names with pleasant words such as “gift” or “happy”, while African American names were more commonly associated with unpleasant words.

These biases can have a profound impact on human behaviour. One previous study showed that an identical CV is 50% more likely to result in an interview invitation if the candidate’s name is European American than if it is African American. The latest results suggest that algorithms, unless explicitly programmed to address this, will be riddled with the same social prejudices.
