The latest release of Microsoft SharePoint is primed to change the rules when it comes to building applications. In this session, come get a demo-centric introduction to what's new and improved. We'll cover what "off box" really means and how these external apps integrate with SharePoint. We'll look out the different hosting options to help you decide where you app should run, and introduce the new client APIs as well as discuss authentication mechanisms within your solutions. We’ll also explore changes in deployment packaging options – it’s an exciting new world for developers, come join us and take the first step into the future.

  • Why do we needa new app model
  • Challenges with WSP solutions Full-trust solutions Sandboxed solutions Requires administrative deployment and support Lifecycle management Steep learning curve Not cloud ready
  • Benefits of the new app model • Based on a proven and familiar app model • Apps can be found in SharePoint Store or a corporate app catalog Info Workers • Can provision, upgrade and delete • Lower learning curve – re-use your existing web technology background • SharePoint Store opens up new revenue potential Developers • Apps decoupled from SharePoint – simplifies upgrades • Virtually no risk to farm • Corporate catalog facilitates governance controls IT Managers
  • What is a SharePoint 2013 App? Self-contained pieces offunctionality that extend thecapabilities of a SharePoint website
  • Demo Built-in Apps
  • Um, as a dev - what exactly is an app? An application whose interface is surfaced through SharePoint but code is executed elsewhere Can contain some declarative SharePoint artifacts External app provides SharePoint UI through IFrame External app uses CSOM or REST (OData) calls to call back No custom server-side code running on SharePoint
  • How apps run
  • What SharePoint artifacts are supported? * Modules: pages, js libraries, images, other file-based resources Custom actions: ribbon or ECB Client web part (“app part”) List instances, columns, content types Remote event receivers * SPWeb-scoped features only When adding an app, a sub-web is created to hold these artifacts; when removing an app, sub-web is deleted
  • Demo Apps
  • Apps vs solution packages Apps Sandboxed WSP Full trust WSP Anywhere but Farm (User CodeWhere does server-side code run?

  • Three hosting options
  • Three hosting options
  • Three hosting options
  • Three hosting options
  • Host web and app web The host web is where app is added, removed, upgraded If app has SharePoint artifacts, a sub-web is created underneath the host web This sub-web is called the app web App web is only accessible using isolated domain name
  • App web Provisioned by host web Contains only web-scoped features Initial UI is immersive, full page Custom master page is assigned (app.master) Quick launch and common layout pages are unavailable Only declarative code allowed
  • Demo .app package
  • API Support (_api) Remote APIs are now a first-class citizen Client-side object model (CSOM) REST-based (OData) OAuth
  • CSOM
  • CSOM Same object models as before Much richer API compared to 2010
  • OData
  • OData REST-ful API Virtually same coverage as CSOM
  • Demo Using OData
  • Bonus Demo (if time permits) Apps
  • How do I get started? Sign up for Office 2013 developer site http://dev.office.com Get Visual Studio 2012 http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/downloads Download the Office Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2013 RTM - Preview http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=261869
