Mastering Microsoft’s App Model Makes Sense for a Wide Range of SharePoint Users

On Tuesday, November 12, Rehmani Consulting, Inc. will host an online class on building Apps for SharePoint 2013. The class is titled Building Robust Apps in SharePoint 2013. This course will be led by Yaroslav Pentsarskyy, a subject matter expert on this topic and a published author, as well.

SharePoint 2013 stakeholders searching for a method to expose data reposed in SharePoint to users equipped with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) terminals (smart phones, tablets, ultrabooks, etc), will, inevitably, have to come around to working with Microsoft’s new App Model. Our course is designed to equip application developers with the information they need to successfully build the functionality these users require in App form for SharePoint Server 2013.

A lot of emphasis will be placed on becoming familiar with the tools required to build these processes, namely JavaScript. We’ll also touch on a special set of functions designed to hasten App development with JavaScript, meaning the jQuery library. So stakeholders with an interest in branding SharePoint sites, who also are somewhat familiar with JavaScript should find this course to deliver a substantial amount of useful information.

How robust is the App platform? As Yaroslav will demonstrate in this course, the platform is very robust. Though dot net code is not required for Apps (and, further, cannot be used as a development platform for these processes), a very wide range of functionality can now be built into these processes with JavaScript, especially so when jQuery is included in the mix of available methods.

Microsoft has provided the SharePoint community with a substantial set of indicators as regards the future for process development for the SharePoint Server paradigm. Most of these indicators point to Apps, so it certainly makes sense for any organization with a major commitment to SharePoint to plan on implementing this development approach as quickly as possible.
