Client Side Development is officially an essential skill for all SharePoint developers, however with the lack of traditional compilers and debugging processes, many developers quickly grow frustrated and resent the Client Side Development experience. There is hope though, utilizing a growing number of development tools and resources, client side developers can create astonishingly usable and functional applications that before would have required Visual Studio and solution deployment. In this session developers and those familiar with JavaScript will learn how to get started writing feature rich client side applications in SharePoint without the need to open Visual Studio or deploy any features or solutions to your farm. Whether you are using SharePoint 2010, 2013, on premise or in the cloud, this session will enable developers and experienced designers to add value to their SharePoint deployments.

You will learn:

  • Do’s and don’ts for being an effective Client Side Developer
  • Simple tricks that make developing and debugging JavaScript easier
  • An introduction to tools and plugins that can help bring JavaScript development closer to traditional managed code development
