Angular vs React: Building modern SharePoint interface

Speakers: Radi Atanassov & Dimcho Tsanov

Date: 06.06.2017

The hottest topic nowadays is the SharePoint Framework.

This new programming model introduces platform independent ways for client-side SharePoint development with modern technologies. Through this change many architectural questions are raised in everyday projects:

  • Which framework should we use - AngularJS, React, jQuery?
  • How do we retrieve data in the best possible way - can we still use the JavaScript object model (JSOM) or do we need to move to REST queries?
  • How should we structure our project and what automation should we consider?
  • What's in it for us in Office Fabric UI?
  • How do we debug our code during development and after release?
  • What is available in the classical pages to help us transition?

In this session we will share our real-life project experience with SharePoint Framework. We'll compare also the two frameworks (Angular and React) and discuss the pros and cons of each of them.
