Saturday, November 16, 2019 2:31 PM

Like previous years, Microsoft delivered a session at the Microsoft Ignite 2019 conference that was essentially the “State of SharePoint Framework”. This session, BRK3071 - SharePoint Framework: What's new and what's next, started with a review of what the SharePoint Framework (SPFx) is and where it can be used. The second half of the session covered what's coming next with SPFx, both in the short & long term. In this post, I'll recap what was shared and share my thoughts.

This includes SharePoint Online & SharePoint on-premises versions SharePoint Server 2016 & SharePoint Server 2019. To build a SPFx project, you use the Yeoman generator for the SharePoint Framework to create your project and get started. But there seems to be some confusion on which version you should install depending on your target SharePoint environment. Let's clear this up, once and for all.

Jest Preset Update October 2019

Tuesday, October 8, 2019 8:30 AM

Late last year I published a few Jest presets to simplify adding automated testing to your SharePoint Framework (SPFx) projects. These are complete with example tests including testing the rendering of components, testing async functions using promises or callbacks and even simulating user events. You can learn more about the presets in the original post, Enable Jest testing of SharePoint Framework Projects in One Simple Step. In this post, I want to share some updates to the presets that have been published.

Dealing with Undefined 'this' in React Event Handlers in a Performant Way

Thursday, October 3, 2019 9:30 AM

When I'm teaching React to developers, one thing that comes up often is dealing with a common error. But here's the interesting thing: it's not running into the error that comes up all the time, its how to deal with it that surprises them. I've always wanted to have something to point to that the scenario & why one option is better than others, even though there are plenty of ways to address the issue. That's what this post is!

JavaScript + SharePoint Framework Summer Camp Calls - July 3 & July 18, 2019!

Monday, July 1, 2019 2:30 PM

Microsoft regularly hosts three different community calls under the SharePoint PnP program on various topics. However, during the month of July 2019 schedules are getting a bit out of control with various vacations where no one from the Microsoft side can host the calls and start the recordings. So, they are taking the month of July 2019 off.I volunteered to host two calls in July for those of us who don't want to miss the JavaScript & SharePoint Framework Special Interest Group calls! These will be similar to the Microsoft-hosted calls, but just hosted and run by the community. We're calling these Summer Camp Calls!

Mastering the SharePoint Framework - Sprint 16 adds SPFx with Teams, SPA's and Tons of Updates

Saturday, May 4, 2019 7:41 AM

I'm excited to share this latest update to my course, Mastering the SharePoint Framework for developers. This update, packaged as sprint 16, includes one new chapter and a LOT of updates. When I originally planned out sprint 16, I intended to record a lot of new content. However when the SPFx v1.8.0 release came out there were enough changes to SPFx that I decided to go back and update the course, including adding some new lessons, completely re-recording existing lessons and updating quite a few lessons (both video & notes).
