SharePoint has always had a different software development lifecycle than traditional applications. The fact that SharePoint solutions are composited from configuration of the site plus code has given us a different set of approaches to creating solutions based on SharePoint. Add-Ins (was Apps) create a new set of challenges with client secrets and fixed provider URLs. In this session you'll learn some practical approaches, techniques, and tools for building solutions built on SharePoint - whether you're building SharePoint Solutions or SharePoint Add-ins. Here we'll talk about the approaches to development, QA, and production environments and how to make the process work.

You will learn:

  • How to manage the movement of content, solutions and Add-ins
  • How to manage provider hosted Add-ins and testing environments
  • What a configuration management process should look like
