On December 16, 2016, DevFacto hosted Quality Conf 16.2 – a full-day internal conference dedicated to learning and team building. A number of sessions were presented by our team members which focused on everything from personal to technical growth. In this post, we recap “The New SharePoint Framework” which was originally presented by DevFacto consultants Chris Buchanan and Vili Bogdan.
The SharePoint Framework is a new way of developing functionality for SharePoint in a way that is responsive and mobile-accessible. It is the primary way in which Microsoft is adding U.I. enhancements to SharePoint and will be the way for third party developers to do the same, provided there are no special security requirements.
Traditional SharePoint developers will need to update their skill-set to learn how to use modern client side development techniques and tools. Microsoft has made it relatively easy for somebody to get started with developing using the SharePoint Framework by following their guidelines.
