The future is here, the SharePoint Framework is the new way to create web parts in SharePoint.

We will be discussing everything you need to know to started creating your own solutions using the SharePoint Framework. We’ll start by discussing the supporting tools that you will need and then move on to the architecture and structure of the projects.
