Mastering the SharePoint Framework

Learning a new development model for SharePoint Online and
the future of SharePoint development.

What Is the SharePoint Framework?

“The SharePoint Framework (SPFx) is a page and part model that enables client-side development for building SharePoint experiences. It facilitates easy integration with the SharePoint data, and provides support for open source tooling development.”

-Microsoft

That is how Microsoft explains it, but what exactly is it? Simply put, today the SharePoint Framework enables developers to create client-side web parts and deploy them to SharePoint Online. It can also be thought of as a way to reliably package and deploy client-side customizations that were previously done with the content editor or script editor web parts.

What Can I Expect to Learn in This Course?

 

There is a lot to bite off in learning the SharePoint Framework (SPFx)! Have no fear as this course will cover it all. Here are some of the highlights of topics you can expect to learn in this course!

  • Download, install and configure your development environment for the SharePoint Framework for Windows or MacOS
  • Create and deploy your first client-side web part with the SharePoint Framework
  • Use the SharePoint Workbench to test web parts without deploying to SharePoint
  • Leveraging external & internal libraries (JS & CSS) in client-side web parts
  • Deploying apps to CDNs
  • Creating custom property panes for client-side web parts
  • Adding mock data to your client-side web parts
  • Logging & debugging techniques
  • And more!

Pre-Release

Why am I calling it a "pre-release"? Because even though the content is not 100% complete, I am going to start selling it now. Beginning September 19, 2017, the bundles are available for pre-release purchase at a 20% discount until the course is content complete.

 

Pre-Release Access

During this time you can take advantage of a 20% discount using the code MASTER-SPFX-EARLYACCESS. So while the course is *not* complete at this time, not to worry...when you buy during pre-release, you will get all the chapters for the bundle you purchase as they are released *at no additional cost to you.*

I've explained all the details behind the pre-release & special launch day flash sale in this brief video:

The course is divided into small bite size lessons, so if you already know some of it, just fast forward to the next one. Really looking forward to the next bundles to pick up even more tricks to boost my productivity!"

Technical Requirements

What are the pre-requisites for this course?

Students should have a modest computer at minimum with internet access able to run a text editor and simple scripts as well as access to a SharePoint Online developer tenant to test their creations against a live SharePoint environment.

What kind of development experience should I have to take this course?

Students should have some hands-on experience with JavaScript development. While not required, more hands-on JavaScript experience, experience with TypeScript and NPM is a plus.

Is this class appropriate for brand new SharePoint developers?

Absolutely… zero SharePoint experience is required for this course. This style of development is very different from the previous development models we had in SharePoint, so if this is the first line of code you are writing for SharePoint, you’re in a good place!

What are the system requirements for this class?

Students should have a modest computer at minimum with internet access able to run a text editor and simple scripts. If you have an IDE on your laptop (Visual Studio, WebStorm, Eclipse, etc), you are in good shape.

Content Delivery

Is this course live or pre-recorded?

This course consists of pre-recorded video presentations and demos for you to watch and learn at your own pace. If you find you are interested in more direct interaction and opportunities to ask questions, take a look at the Ultimate Bundle which provides access to regularly scheduled office hours with the opportunity forQ&A.

Is there any opportunity to ask questions related to the content of the class?

The content and presentation of the material is all pre-recorded, so live interaction during the presentations is not included. However, with the Ultimate Bundle, you will have unique access to regular office hours with Andrew Connell.

Is it self-paced or delivered in a prescribed schedule?

This class is self-paced, allowing you to consume the material at the pace that is perfect for you and your schedule. Once you purchase a bundle, you will have immediate access to the content included in that bundle to start your learning immediately and take as much, or as little, time as you need.

Will I still be able to access the course after I complete it?

Yes! You will still be able to access the course to review any chapters that you need to at any time. In addition, with Voitanos’ commitment to evergreen content, when updates are made to the course, you will be notified so that you can review the new content, at no additional cost!

How long is this class?

As an evergreen class, it’s never going to be finished as it will be constantly updated with new and refreshed content as Microsoft adds new features and capabilities to the SharePoint Framework. However you can expect it will contain at least 5 hours of content.

Do you provide a certificate of completion?

At this time we do not provide formal certificates of completion. Is that critical for your organization? Let us know so we can work with you to figure out a solution!

Can I download the course for offline viewing?

The course is only available for streamed online viewing and is not available for downloaded or offline viewing at this time.

Purchasing Options

If I buy the Fundamentals Bundle but want more, can I upgrade to the Ultimate Bundle?

Absolutely! You can upgrade from the Fundamentals Bundle to Ultimate Bundle for $200. Contact me at [email protected] for a special discount code to purchase the ultimate bundle.

What about the 24-hour launch day sale? How will upgrades work for that?

The special, 24-hour launch day flash sale and 50% discount only applies to purchases on the first day. Therefore, if you buy the Fundamentals Bundle in the flash sale (50% of $299 = $149) but a few days later realize you want to upgrade to the Ultimate Bundle, the upgrade price will be the difference of the published prices ($499 - $299 = $200)... remember, that is in addition to the price you paid for the Fundamentals Bundle.

Do you offer in-person or private training deliveries?

For companies who are interested in private training deliveries, please send me an email at [email protected] and we can chat about your needs and goals for your training.

Do you offer any bulk rates for training teams of developers?

Absolutely! For teams of 10 can enjoy a special 25% discount. To arrange this, send me an email at [email protected] for a discounted bulk purchase!

Can discounts be combined?

No, discounts are exclusive and multiple discounts cannot be combined.

Do you offer any discounts for education or government entities?

Absolutely! Just send me an email at [email protected] and we can chat about it.

What forms of payment are accepted?

We currently accept payment via credit card (VISA, Mastercard and AMEX) via Stripe or PayPal. If you need to pay via invoice or check, contact us at [email protected] so we can arrange it. We also accept wire transfer payments for international customers. Note that wire transfer payments will incur a $15USD fee.
