There has already been a lot of talk about the new development approach in SharePoint 2013. In this session we will take a fresh look at the SharePoint-hosted App development model, its implications, benefits and limitations. Then we will see how it actually liberates us to build the SharePoint solutions that our users actually want. The world is changing and our SharePoint solutions need to stay relevant in this new world of user expectations and user devices.

You will learn:

  • Developer perspective on the changes in SharePoint 2013 and how it applies to real-life business solutions
  • Understand the benefits and limitations of the SharePoint App model and the implications for software architecture
  • Practical demonstrations of how we can use these new models to build apps to satisfy current business needs
