In this PnP Web Cast we concentrated on getting started with general web stack in the context of SharePoint or Office 365. This recording was done before the SharePoint Framework announcements, so we are not mentioning that in the video, even though all presenters were aware of this new model. All techniques mentioned in this video do apply on the future SharePoint development models as well. 

Key objective of the web cast is to explain how you can get started on this model, which will be used in the future with SharePoint customizations. We'll release more detailed web casts around the SharePoint Framework specific after this one.

Presentation covers following topics:

  • Development and design stack - Tools and framework to concentrate on
  • Why would you start implementing your customizations using this model?
  • Web stack vs. Classic Microsoft Tools - How does tooling map on typical MS development models
  • Web stack and back end services - it's not all about JavaScript

Demo section concentrates on showing following topics:

  • What to install and where to get started?
  • How to get started with Visual Studio code and node.js development

Web cast presenters: Stefan Bauer, Waldek MastykarzVesa Juvonen

Stefan works as an independent consultant and Waldek works in Rencore AB

    What is Microsoft doing!!!
    Why in the world are you taking traditional Microsoft developers back into the stone age? Now it takes 2 hours just to start developing an application. Just like .NET 5, you have all these dependencies on Node, Gulp, popping back and forth to command line, grunt.... Has it ever occurred to you guys the reason all these tools exists is because people without access to VS tools were essentially hacking. Now you have put SharePoint and .NET development into the hack world.
