Fast-focus Session – Using Features to Provision Assets in SharePoint Framework Solutions
There are lots of examples showing how to build and deploy SharePoint Framework client web parts. But what if you want to provision assets like content types or lists to go along with your web part? In this fast focus session, we will examine how to provision these types of assets using CAML and the Feature framework. We’ll see how to add element manifests to your project, how to manage the feature manifest, and we’ll briefly touch on feature upgrades.

TypeScript for SharePoint Developers
TypeScript is a relatively new language and toolset designed to make JavaScript coding feel more familiar to developers used to working with statically-typed languages. TypeScript is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript. TypeScript adds optional static types, classes, and modules to JavaScript to enable great tooling and better structuring of large JavaScript applications. This session introduces TypeScript and shows how it can be used in SharePoint Apps and Solutions.

Introduction to the SharePoint Client Object Model and REST API
As Microsoft was releasing SharePoint 2013 it was pretty clear that they were steering people away from using the product as a portal to using it as a gateway to external systems and services. Since the Server Object Model cannot be used remotely, developers building these external systems will need to become familiar with the Client Object Model (CSOM) and/or the REST API if they want to communicate with SharePoint. This session will introduce these two APIs, give a brief overview of their history, and then show you how to get started using them through a series of demonstrations.

Introduction to the Office Dev PnP Core Libraries
The Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) team have released two libraries focused on increase developer productivity by reducing the amount of code needed when building remote applications. The Office 365 Developer PnP Core Component is a managed code library that extends and encapsulates commonly used Client Object Model operations. The Office 365 Developer PnP JavaScript Core Library is a JavaScript library that simplifies the use of the REST API. After a brief discussion of the Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices project as a whole we’ll move to demos showing how you get started using the Office 365 Developer PnP Core libraries.
