The Add-in model is a new development/deployment model introduced with SharePoint 2013. When using this model, all code runs outside the SharePoint server in the client browser, on another server in your network or in the cloud. Since code isn't being deployed to the server, interaction with SharePoint is done with the enhanced and extended client object model and REST services. This session will explore the Add-in model and look at how to develop Add-ins using Visual Studio and a new Web-based tool code-named "Napa."

You will learn:

  • How to Install and use Add-ins from the end-user perspective
  • The different types of Add-ins and how to build them
  • Add-in authentication and identity
