VIDEO – Create Modern Communication for Root Site in Tenant

UPDATE – Microsoft does not recommend deleting the root site and is working on native capability to create communication site at Tenant root for Q4 CY2019.  Office 365 Roadmap

SharePoint Admin Center allows for creating the new Modern Communication site but only with a managed path prefix (/sites/ or /teams).   However, there is a workaround by using the SharePoint Classic Admin Center to modify HTML <SELECT> control and add a new choice for “SITEPAGEPUBLISHING#0” web template.   See video for full demo.  Cheers!

VIDEO – Front End Developer Tools

Below is a quick video showing how to install common Front End Developer tools on a new Windows O/S machine from the command line.   Having these will enable creation of modern JavaScript based apps with HTML/JS/CSS with advanced debugging, intelligence autocomplete, and live re-loading.  Cheers!
