WS 302 - Getting Started with JavaScript Development in SharePoint

Julie Turner - Sympraxis

JavaScript, REST, CSOM, Office 365 APIs: Like it or not, client side development is the future of SharePoint development. Utilizing simple JavaScript or powerful third-party libraries like jQuery in SharePoint, developers can take their applications to the next level in less time. What's more, you can utilize JavaScript in SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013, and in Office 365 often without making changes to your code.

In this half-day workshop, you gain a new appreciation for JavaScript and learn what's possible utilizing this type of development.

We'll discuss various methods of development and debugging, some better practices for maintenance and deployment when it comes specifically to SharePoint. And, finally we'll look at how we can do more advanced development, including single page applications (SPAs) and dashboards utilizing Client Side BI.
