What Will you Learn in This Class?

Day 1 - What is SPFx & Let's Get Setup for Dev!

The first day of the course starts with an introduction to the SharePoint Framework for developers who are both new to SharePoint as well as those experienced SharePoint developers who have worked with previous development models such as farm or sandboxed solutions as well as provider-hosted or SharePoint-hosted Add-ins. By the end of the first day you will have seen how to setup your local development environment regardless if you are using MacOS or Windows as your primary experience. We will even include a discussion on how to manage your Node.js installs with NVM and alternatives to the prescribed NPM package manager.

  • Introduction to the SharePoint Framework
  • Getting your development environment setup
  • Node & NVM
  • NPM & Yarn

Day 2 - Web Parts: Designing, Branding and Building

The second day of the live course focuses on client-side web parts. Web parts are core to SharePoint customizations going back to the very first development options Microsoft provided developers in the SharePoint platform. By the end of the day you will have learned not only how to create web parts using the SharePoint Framework as client-side web parts, but you will also learn how to deal with custom properties using the property pane. We will briefly cover some useful community projects from the SharePoint Patterns & Practices group that includes reusable controls for your web parts and property panes. In addition, you will also learn how to debug your customizations using the browser or Visual Studio Code as well as leverage the hosting site’s theme colors to properly brand your customizations!

  • Client-side web parts (CSWP)
  • Property panes
  • Community resources for CSWP's
  • Branding
  • Debugging 

Day 3 - Data Access: SharePoint & Third Party

Many of your customizations will likely need to communicate with the data in your SharePoint sites so the third day will focus on using the SharePoint Framework to leverage the SharePoint REST API. You will see how to do all the common CRUDQ operations including creating, reading, updating, deleting and querying for data within your custom solutions as well as leverage batching multiple requests together. As part of this day we will also look at how to call the Microsoft Graph and third-party web services for data external to SharePoint sites.

  • SP REST API data access
  • Calling 3rd party services

Day 4 - UI Extensions, Provisioning Assets & Deployment to Production

The fourth day of the course will look at working with UI extensions, the ability that the SharePoint Framework gives us to inject script on every page in our site, customize the rendering of fields in modern lists and add buttons to list toolbars and item context menus. As part of this day we will also explore what's involved in deploying your customizations to production. Finally, you learn how to use SharePoint Framework projects to create common SharePoint artifacts, including site columns, content types and list instances using the SharePoint Feature framework. We will also address other options for provisioning assets in SharePoint including using the SharePoint REST API for client-side provisioning and remote provisioning options.

  • Extensions
  • Deployment to production
  • Provisioning assets

"Its taken 3 days but I've written my first #SPFx web part in TypeScript and I even think I understand some of it. Couldn't have done it without the awesome @voitanos (by @andrewconnell) Mastering the SharePoint Framework course though. Feeling pretty chuffed right now."

"@voitanos dropped another version of the update with few minor fixes of the previous chapters. The way @andrewconnell making sure of the quality & content, this is going to be a must for all #SharePoint devs in future for structured learning. #SPFx."

"Thanks Andrew for the course on Mastering the SharePoint Framework. I have 10 years of experience in SharePoint development. Most of my Experience is towards server-side code. Your course narrows down the learning path in new SPFx development. Thanks again for enlightening me in SPFx development. Cheers!"

"I have a C# and Visual Studio background, so the SPFX for me is about learning the new tooling to make it all work. I have been through the Hello World recently and found that it isn't as hard as it appears. We don't need to be experts in these tools, just have a basic understanding of what it's doing. Your email series has been a big help."

Eric Gregorich

"It's a great course and I truly believe it was well worth funding this out of my own pocket. Keep up the great work!"
