  1. I’m really pleased you guys are back ‘on the air’. I had wondered if the show had come to an end….

    I have a couple of questions which may or may not be of interest to other listeners.

    1. With MSAL vs ADAL it looks like the recommendation for Enterprise development is to use ADAL because of a limitation (I think i read that somewhere in one of Vittorios posts). I also see a conversation in PnP about ADAL not working with SPfx on IE.
    It would be great if you could provide an update on the state of auth libraries with Azure AD and the Graph. What we should use in what circumstances. For a relative beginner with this it is quite confusing currently.

    2. I have been trying really hard to get ASP.Net Core working with the graph. I haven’t been able to find any samples that work with RTM. I want to use OpenIDConnect, but the API for .Net Core seems to be different to the one in standard ASP.Net. I thinks it has also changed since the RC.vAny chance you could do a sample or an episode of the Office Dev show on getting ASP.Net Core working with the Graph? Also, many of the samples for other platforms are using MSAL, so that re-enforces the confusion of Q1.

    Thanks so much for doing the shows.

  2. Please continue to develop/upgrade Microsoft Access database technology. We have a lot of legacy Access databases and we do not use cloud services in the backcountry. We have to switch to Alpha Anywhere or Filemaker if Microsoft discontinues Access development. Why do you stop developing a good product?
