SharePoint 2016 Feature Pack 2 Brings the SharePoint Framework to On-Premises

SharePoint 2016 Feature Pack 2 Brings the SharePoint Framework to On-Premises With the release of the SharePoint 2016 Feature Pack 2 (or September 2017 Update) Microsoft has brought their latest development incarnation, the SharePoint Framework, to on-premises environments. The SharePoint Framework (or SPFx) allows developers to create light-weight client-side web parts that run with the full context of the current user. These web parts are able to leverage modern developer techniques and technologies so even those with no prior SharePoint experience can become productive and capable SharePoint developers with very little ramp up. With the recent release of SPFx 1.3 we now have the option to choose our deployment target, either SharePoint Online or SharePoint 2016 on-premises. This video will walk you through installing Feature Pack 2 and building a simple SPFx web part that can be easily deployed to SharePoint 2016.
