Speaking at SharePointFest Chicago 2018

I am very lucky enough to have been accepted to speak at SharePointFest Chicago for the third year running now. The subject is Automated Build and deploy of SharePoint Framework webparts.

One of the really fascinating things about working in a modern large development team is the outstanding benefits for automated testing, automated build, and automated deployment. Even for something which might not on the surface seem to be a “big deal” such as SPFx webpart development, has many advantages to be gained by using a professional automated development environment.

Since I submitted and was accepted to speak, VSTS has been renamed to Azure DevOps, so this might be difficult to pull off as a topic – but i think we will be ok 😉

SharePointFest is always  alot of fun with a good crowd of speakers and attendees. I am excited to attend and excited to speak 🙂

 

DEV304 – Using VSTS to automate build and deployment tasks for SharePoint Framework webparts

Working on your own and building SharePoint Framework webparts is one thing, but when you have to work in a team on a larger project, the team approach to development has to be more structured and automated.

Modern team web development practices demand the use of unit tests, load testing and automated build and deploy methodologies. Why should developing for the Sharepoint framework be any different?

In this presentation Mark will highlight the advantages to using VSTS to create and manage and continuous build and deploy process for working with the Sharepoint Framework. Come and see how modern team development techniques can be applied to SPFx.
