DEV102 - How I Learned to Love TypeScript and Stop Fearing the SharePoint Framework

Eric Overfield  RD, MVP

Office 365 and the SharePoint Framework have shifted customization methodologies, moving us from the shackles and limitations of server-side development and freed us with client-side rendering models. Within the SharePoint Framework, our core language is TypeScript, still an unknown for many SharePoint developers.

In this session we will dive into TypeScript to learn its secrets so we can build amazing yet maintainable Framework based webparts and applications. We will look at TypeScript typings, classes, modules, and more so we can build rugged, refined, and yet reusable and maintainable code modules, components and controls for our current and future Framework based webparts.

Session Benefits:
• Overview of TypeScript, its core features and why it is important
• Learn how SharePoint Framework webparts use TypeScript
• Get examples and code for creating custom TypeScript components for SharePoint
