In this PnP Web Cast we concentrated on sharing how to get prepared for the upcoming SharePoint Framework. We are showing some of the tools used commonly with SharePoint Framework development and also how to use Visual Studio as your development environment for SharePoint Framework. 

Key objective of the web cast is to provide you additional insights on the upcoming capabilities and how to get prepared for them. SharePoint Framework will be available, with limited capabilities, for first release tenants during summer 2016.

Presentation covers following topics:

  • Typical tooling for SharePoint Framework
  • Web stack tooling vs classic Microsoft tools
  • Walk-through of the different tools and their purpose
  • Training path for mastering SharePoint Framework
  • Getting started with tooling

Demo section concentrates on showing following topics:

  • Walk-through of the different tooling and their purpose
  • Demonstration of the SharePoint Framework development with Visual Studio 2015

* Notice. It's important to notice that we used preview tooling in this video, which is not yet available for the community to consume, when this video was released. When official tooling will be available, there might be also some changes on the exact commands and also on the capabilities in Visual Studio side.
