SharePoint PnP Webcast – CRUD operations with SharePoint Framework client-side web parts

In this PnP Webcast we concentrated on covering how to perform typical CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations with different JavaScript framework with SharePoint Framework client-side web parts. Webcast concentrates on covering considerations and practices on performing basic operations without any framework, with Angular 1.x, with React or with PnP JS Core library. You can find related sample code from SharePoint Framework client-side web part sample repository, which is also open for community contributions. 

Notice. When this webcast was released, SharePoint Framework was available as a Developer Preview release.  

Presentation covers following topics:

  • Introduction to covered frameworks: No Framework, PnP JS Core, Angular, React
  • Considerations on using different frameworks in client-side web parts

Web cast demo shows following details

  • Demonstration of the provided web parts from reference solution. UI is as simple as possible by design, so that there’s no additional complexity on the code
  • Clarifications on what to consider when using a specific JavaScript framework in your web part

What is SharePoint / Office DevPatterns & Practices (PnP) web cast series?

SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns and PracticesSharePoint / Office Dev Patterns & Practices (PnP) webcast series covers different patterns, practices and topics around development with Office 365 and SharePoint. Majority of the topics are valid for the Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises. Our objective is to release new around 30 minute long web cast each Monday with few slides and a live demo on the covered topic. All web casts are published at the PnP YouTube channel with additional references on the existing materials.

PnP is community driven open source project where Microsoft and external community members are sharing their learning’s around implementation practices for Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises (add-in model). Active development and contributions happen in our GitHub repositories under dev branch and each month there will be a master merge (monthly release) with more comprehensive testing and communications. Latest activities and future plans are covered in our monthly community calls which are open for anyone from the community. Download invite from

This is work done by the community for the community without any actual full time people. It’s been great to find both internal and external people who are willing to assist and share their learning’s for the benefit of others. This way we can build on the common knowledge of us all. Currently program is facilitated by Microsoft, but already at this point we have multiple community members as part of the Core team and we are looking to extend the Core team with more community members.

If you have any questions, comments or feedback around PnP program or this blog post, please use the Microsoft Tech Community (SharePoint Developer group).
