The current technical landscape for SharePoint and Office developers can certainly feel overwhelming. Everyone knows that developers no longer write server-side code, but it’s not always clear exactly what form a particular solution should take. At the highest level, you can choose from SharePoint add-ins, Office add-ins, and Office 365 applications. Within each of those solution types, you can utilize the SharePoint REST API, CSOM API, Office API, or Unified API. Additionally, you can pick from various development frameworks such as ASP.NET web forms, ASP.NET MVC, or Angular. Fortunately, a few days at Unity Connect Amsterdam 2015 will help you organize your thoughts.
Get the event started by attending the keynote session in which Dan Holme, Spencer Harbar, and I will bring clarity to the current state of SharePoint and Office. In particular, developers will immediately get our thoughts concerning the different development options, their current role, and future value. After the keynote, you’ll be ready for some deep diving into specifics.
Along the way, there are lots of other great sessions as well, so check out the full agenda and start planning. Also, be sure to bring it all together with a workshop. For developers, I’ll be presenting a full day of developing SharePoint and Office solutions with Angular, REST, OAuth, and Azure Active Directory. Overall, Unity Connect Amsterdam has a great lineup for developers. All of the speakers are excited to be part of the event and can’t wait to see you there!
