Untangling SharePoint Client Side Development


Since SharePoint 2010 and 2013 include an Ecmascript/Javascript object model (JSOM) and .Net object model (CSOM), it has been an option to design other applications that “reach into” SharePoint.  These applications can modify SharePoint sites or use SharePoint as a storage engine.  In this session, we’ll explore when it makes sense to develop client side applications (as opposed to traditional .net / sql server applications), look at code automation possibilities, security, and gotchas.
