This workshop will get you up to speed if you are interested in becoming a SharePoint developer but you don't know where to start.

Are you interested in becoming a SharePoint developer but you don't know where to start? In this workshop, I'll get you up to speed. You might have heard the terms full-trust solutions, sandbox solutions, SharePoint apps, server-side code, client side object model (CSOM), cloud app model (CAM), REST APIā€¦ what does it all mean? When should you use one over the other? Have no fear! The current release of SharePoint (SharePoint 2013) and Office 365 embrace the client-over-HTTP model of development which makes the lives of developers much easier. In this workshop, for those new to SharePoint development, we'll start out with some background to get you up to speed quickly. Then we'll look at the landscape of the development world for Office 365, SharePoint & the cloud. It doesn't matter if your SharePoint environment is on-premises, hybrid or hosted in the cloud with Office 365. When you walk out of this workshop, you'll be armed with the knowledge to create custom solutions for your business problems using the best tools, techniques and libraries at your disposal for modern day development. Furthermore, during this workshop I will also highlight specific sessions at the rest of the conference where you can dive deeper and learn more about specific topics we touch on during the workshop.

You will learn:

  • Get a clear understanding of developing for SharePoint on-premises and in Office 365
  • Understand server-side & client-side code options
  • Understand how & when to work with the different SharePoint APIs
