This morning we had a SharePoint 2013 session hosted by Techies.ae and presented by Usama. The intent was not to code and we indeed kept it light enough to have just slides and a very lively discussion! Noteworthy sidebar discussions were with Mair, Nazish, Noel, and Adrian on TypeScript and OAUTH.
Techies.ae have seen a few new solutions developments boiling down to not writing code on the server at all. Also the developer wanting to run the development environment from 8GB of ram might be in for a ‘slow’ surprise… Tools are SharePoint ‘Napa’, Visual Studio 2012, and SharePoint Designer. The server now hosts an _api service interface and will behave RESTfull, expect a lot of ODATA to be consumed.
Appreciate the efforts, PluralSight Raffle went to Usama and Noel. Nazish got the Azure memory stick.
