That’s the title for a full-day session I’m doing at the upcoming Philly Code Camp (October 10, 2015, Philly MTC in Malvern – more information). Registration is only $76 and includes breakfast and lunch, raffles, guaranteed admission to the Saturday regular Code Camp (which will sell out), and more. Register here.
Here’s the synopsis for the day:
Until recently, SharePoint was the red-headed stepchild of the Microsoft web development world, requiring intimate knowledge of SharePoint and it’s gargantuan object model. This made SharePoint a very specialized skill-set that stood off to the side on its own. It’s lack of support for standard web-development practices made it difficult for new developers to learn – or to even want to learn.
Fortunately, this has changed.
Bring your laptops as this is a hands-on session. No SharePoint experience is necessary, but basic programming skills would be a big help. This is a great opportunity to add SharePoint to your toolkit, or to take your SharePoint skills to the next level. Individuals and teams are welcome.
I’m still tweaking the material, but here is the current agenda:
- Introduction & Getting Started (including why SharePoint? )
- Setting up the Environment
- Setting up the Environment (Lab)
- Tools & Frameworks
- Tools & Frameworks (Lab)
- The SharePoint REST API
- Hello (SharePoint REST) World (Lab)
- CRUD Operations
- CRUD Operations (Lab)
- Provisioning (Lab)
- Language Agnostic – C#, Ruby, [Insert favorite language here]
- Language Agnostic (Lab)
- Wrap Up and Next Steps
I’ll post more details as we get closer.
To follow along with the labs, you’ll need:
- a laptop with Visual Studio (2013 or 2015) installed
That’s it. You will not need SharePoint installed
