In just over two months, I’ll be at the at the 365 EduCon (SPFest) conference in Seattle presenting a full day workshop & few sessions for Microsoft 365 & Azure professional developers!
Not only is this is expected to be a great conference, but I’m especially excited as it’s the first in-person conference for me since the world stopped in early 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I can’t wait to see old friends and interact with attendees at the show!
One of the biggest reasons I’ll like these 365 EduCon (formerly SPFest) conferences is the size… it’s an ideal size for the attendees and speakers to interact. This is commonly referred to as the hallway track where attendees and speakers have an opportunity to interact and expand on the topic covered in the session or just general networking stuff. Make sure you take advantage of this!

I’ve taught this workshop multiple times in the past, but for this conference, I’ve poured a lot of time into revamping and refreshing it. If you’re just getting started with SPFx, have a little or moderate experience with SPFx, this workshop is for you!
You’ll learn everything you need to know how to get started with SPFx. I’m even going to spend some time demonstrating how you can use React to build your custom components using React Hooks!
