May Session - Become a SharePoint Developer in 90 minutes (or less)

Session Summary

SharePoint as a product is one of the most widely used in Microsoft's line up. It is installed in 95% of Fortune 500 companies and since the release of SharePoint Online is becoming a mainstay in small and medium sized businesses as well.


Developing for SharePoint? Well, that's another thing. For many, the limitations of the API, the challenges of the data model, and the complexity of setting up a development environment took SharePoint development off the must-have skill set for many people.


Fortunately, with SharePoint 2013, that has changed. Now the skills that you need to create a SharePoint application are much more easily accessible. They are just Web skill. You can use MVC, HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript to create a sophisticated application that integrates tightly with SharePoint. Is it exactly the same as writing your typical ASP.NET application? Not quite. But closer than you think. And with the information you get from this session, you'll be able to easily bridge the gap between Web app and SharePoint app. And, as you'll find out, there's no reason not to do this.
