Sorry for the late notice, but if you're in the Boston area and a SharePoint developer, tonight's user group talk may interest you! While I can't be there in person, I am joining the group as a remote presenter.
I'm presenting a session Building Client Web Parts with the SharePoint Framework, an introduction to what it's like developing with the SharePoint Framework (SPFx). In this session, you'll get some tips & tricks on how I setup and manage my development environment in addition to creating client-side web parts. Here's a full description of the session:
Creating client-side web parts in the SharePoint Framework is the recommended extensibility model from Microsoft.

In this session you will learn the fundamentals for creating client web parts using the SharePoint Framework so you can hit the ground running with this new SharePoint development model: the SharePoint Framework.
