WS 302 - SharePoint Framework Jump Start

Ryan Schouten - ZAACT
The future is here, the SharePoint Framework is the new way to create web parts in SharePoint. No longer do we need to be constantly adding content editor web parts to our pages to add our client side code. We will be discussing everything you need to know to started creating your own solutions using the SharePoint Framework. We’ll start by discussing the supporting tools that you will need and then move on to the architecture and structure of the projects. Since the SharePoint Framework takes advantage of TypeScript we will provide information on what it is and discuss the differences between TypeScript and JavaScript. By the end of this workshop we will create an application that you can then take and deploy to your SharePoint environment or use the Workbench to play with. We will also discuss the new SharePoint Framework extensions and how we take advantage of this new functionality in Office365.
