Earlier this week I had the opportunity to present a few sessions at the SPTechCon conference in Austin, Texas.

The other two sessions were on the SharePoint Framework. Bob German and I tag-teamed a 3-part full day track on the SharePoint Framework. In part 2 of the track, I walked through creating a web part from start to finish with no JavaScript framework. Then in part 3, we had a lively discussion on React, Angular, Office UI Fabric and how to make sense of all the options before I built a web part using Angular 1.6.
