Sharepoint 2013 Apps – or how I learned to stop worrying and love the apps, the cloud and the app clouds

A session at Code Camp 2013.2

  • James Tramel

Saturday 23rd November, 2013

10:00am to 11:15am (EST)

SharePoint 2013 brings with it the new app model, and new acronyms like CSOM and JSOM. Rumors abound about no sandbox solutions. HTML 5 and JavaScript rule the world. However, this doesn’t tell the whole story. SharePoint Apps enhance the SharePoint experience, not degrade it. We’ll take a brief tour of the new app model to talk about where these new apps can live and breathe – and how they can offer more power than SharePoint alone ever did, thanks to Azure or BYOx. We’ll look at app event receivers, app architecture, app gotchas and how to install apps without procedural code (hint – see javascript). With SharePoint 2013 nearly co-releasing with SharePoint Online 2013, we may look at this new app model at what leans toward truly decoupled SOA where the sky is the limit.
