With all of the talk about moving SharePoint into "the cloud", developers have to rethink some of the methods they have used successfully in the past. Sandboxed solutions, while still very powerful, impose development limitations, which can stymie traditional SharePoint developers. To add to the challenge, today's SharePoint users want more from their applications, both in terms of functionality and the overall user experience. At the same time, CIOs and CTOs want to get more "bang for their buck", spending less to accomplish more.



In this session, Marc will discuss the alternative development approach called SharePoint's Middle Tier, which includes XSL/XML, JavaScript/jQuery, Data View Web Parts (DVWPs), and SharePoint's SOAP (XML) Web Services. The techniques are sometimes called "no code", but whatever you call them they don't require any server side deployment, making them ideal for use with Office365 and other cloud-based platforms.
