In this weekly PnP Web Cast we concentrated on covering PnP remote timer job framework and how you can use this open source solution to help on implementing remote timer jobs using add-in model patterns for Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises. You can find introduction on the PnP Remote Timer Job Framework from the following article under PnP-Sites-Core repository.
Patterns around the remote timer jobs are also covered in Module 5 of PnP transformation training titled as "Using Remote Event Receivers and Remote Timer Jobs".

- Governance.SiteUsageReport - Does not use PnP timer job framework, but shows remote timer jobs in general
- Governance.ContentTypeEnforceRetention - Does not use PnP timer job framework, but shows remote timer jobs in general

What is Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) web cast series?
We have started this weekly Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) web cast series to cover different patterns, practices and topics around development with Office 365 and SharePoint. Majority of the topics are valid for the Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises. We will release new around 30 minute long web cast each Monday with few slides and live demo on the covered topic. All web casts are published at the PnP Channel 9 video blog with additional references on the existing materials.
PnP is community driven open source project where Microsoft and external community members are sharing their learning's around implementation practices for Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises (add-in model). Active development and contributions happen our GitHub project under Dev branch and each month there will be a master merge (monthly release) with more comprehensive testing and communications. Latest activities and future plans are covered in our monthly community calls which are open for anyone from the community. Download invite from http://aka.ms/OfficeDevPnPCall.
This is work done by the community for the community without any actual full time people. It’s been great to find both internal and external people who are willing to assist and share their learning's for the benefit of others. This way we can build on the common knowledge of us all. Currently program is facilitated by Microsoft, but already at this point we have multiple community members as part of the Core team and we are looking to extend the Core team with more community members.
If you have any questions, comments or feedback around PnP program or this blog post, please use the PnP Yammer group at http://aka.ms/OfficeDevPnPYammer.
