Join Sahil Malik for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of SharePoint Framework for Developers: 3 Deployment, Upgrades, and Lifecycle.
- [Instructor] Let's talk a little bit about what you should know before watching this course so you get the maximum value out of this course. You should be familiar with modern dev. I consider this as a prerequisite to working with SharePoint Framework. Technologies like TypeScript, npm, Node.js-based development, VS Code, Gulp, Yeoman, Sass. You don't need to be an expert at these concepts, but you need to have a good level of understanding of these concepts.
You should also have some basic familiarity with Office 365. So when I say things like, "Let's go to your site collection." "Here is a content type." "This is your tenant app catalog." "Here's a list." "Here's a feature." These words should have meaning to you. This is not a basics SPFx course. This is more about the practical sides of SPFx, how you manage SPFx solutions in the real world.
So I won't be showing you how to write an SPFx web part, for instance. You should already know that. I have other course on LinkedIn Learning which take you through those basics, and I recommend you watch those first if you're not already familiar with writing a simple SPFx solution. SharePoint Framework is cross-platform, so you can follow along through this course on Mac, Windows, or Linux. Certainly the PowerShell portions apply only to Windows.
However, I do have very good coverage on Office 365 CLI in this course, as well. And finally, you do need an Office 365 tenancy with admin access. This doesn't need to be your production tenancy, but you need a tenancy for dev purposes.
