As presented to the Hamilton SharePoint User Group on March 21, 2013. With powerful new content search capabilities, metadata driven navigation, and new features such as design manager and cross site publishing, this presents a paradigm shift for developers with a focus on WCM publishing sites (intranet, internet). These new features and capabilities will be presented at an introductory level during this talk. The session will then focus on your typical Visual Studio “Publishing Solution” in SharePoint 2010. How do you get this running on a SharePoint 2013 Farm “as is” (migration)? What is involved if I want to convert my existing visual studio solution to SP 2013 developer tools and then fully over to the SP 2013 publishing paradigm? We’re already in development of a SharePoint 2010 site - can we deploy SharePoint 2013 now or should we wait? This session will provide insight into how you should develop today, and be ready for the new world that awaits in SharePoint 2013!
