Native Office 365 Responsive Design & Templates via Patterns and Practices

A couple of months ago Microsoft released the Office 365 Patterns and Practices (PnP) Partner Pack and it includes some wonderful goodies that are LONG overdue.  Among them is probably the most sought after feature that has yet to be natively baked into the product and that is Responsive Design. Here are all the features currently included in the Partner Pack but I am sure it will grow over time:
  • Self-service site collection and sub site provisioning solution
    • Fully configurable based on business requirements

MS said,

""OOS scales well for your enterprise whether you have 100 employees or 100,000. The architecture enables one OOS farm to serve multiple SharePoint, Exchange and Skype for Business instances.

From office Graph, the new developer framework, to Flow and PowerApps, the amount of new features and functionality is absolutely mind blowing. Another interesting and somewhat either unexpected or long overdue announcement was the immediate release and availability of new iOS, Android, and Windows mobile apps for SharePoint and Office 365. The key note was delivered by Satya Nadella, himself and shows Microsoft's continued big bets on SharePoint and the Office platform. I, as a SharePoint developer for over 12 years now, am proud to be part of such a huge and vibrant
