Next week the UK SharePoint user group (SUGUK) is holding a developer evening at Microsoft Paddington. I’m looking forward to taking part, and will be giving my “Pitfalls in SharePoint Framework (SPFx) development” talk. It will be nice to have a developer focus to the event – there’s a lot of change in the dev landscape at the moment, between Azure Functions, Teams extensibility, modern sites and pages, to the overall shift that the SharePoint Framework brings with it’s emphasis on npm, gulp, TypeScript and so on. My esteemed fellow northerner Bill Ayers is giving the other session – he will open with “Welcome to the brave new world of SharePoint and Office 365 development”. This should be a good intro to the overall topic of the SharePoint Framework, which will lead into my deeper-dive into real world pitfalls and how to avoid them.
The details for the evening are:
