Development Practices for Multiple Environments in SharePoint Online
For a SharePoint on-premises implementation, a separate farm would be setup for development, testing and productions environments. This would inherently isolate each of these environments from one another. However, when developing on a single tenant for SharePoint Online each of these environments would be site collections rather than farms, which means they cannot have the same relative URL and will share SharePoint services like Search, User Profiles and Managed Metadata. This session will cover various development practices that will help establish the same isolation of environments on SharePoint Online as SharePoint on-premises.
