Over the last 6 months we’ve released three sets of video tutorials on the new SharePoint 2013 App Model, which is a component of Microsoft’s Cloud App Model for its Office products. Our tutorials include:
- SP13-303 SharePoint 2013: Development Video Training Package, which is authored by Yaroslav Pentsarskyy
- SharePoint 2013: Beginning Development, led by Steve Fox, a Director of Services at Microsoft®
The nice thing about this type of development is the further indication it provides of how the developer community is adjusting to the new Cloud App model. Once these “server objects” have been ported over to JSON “ViewModels”, server security has been preserved, but with a very limited reduction, if any, on functionality.
I’ve written earlier in this blog on the importance of Microsoft’s new development architecture for SharePoint 2013 and its other Office Cloud Applications. This new architecture should be very attractive to enterprise customers looking to provision functionality to “consumerized IT” user segments, while preserving a higher level of security than would otherwise be possible via typical cloud applications.
Mr. Grenier’s post should also provide some good news for C# developers looking to migrate existing applications into a form conforming with the new Cloud App model. “Re-purposed” code makes a lot more sense than committing resources to rewrite it. The cost savings for enterprise customers implementing this type of development should be very attractive.
