SharePoint 2016 / Office 365 SharePoint Online
Development Course Details

Intended for: Developers / Architects / Enterprise Content Managers / Administrators

Majority of SharePoint development courses start the development portion without giving you practical understanding of out-of-box SharePoint functionality and its strengths and limitations. By the time you open Visual Studio in our course, you will be an expert in collaboration, enterprise document management, search, workflows, and many other aspects of SharePoint. With that knowledge you will understand not only the how but the why of SharePoint development.

We will cover the most important aspects of the SharePoint API and how to access it using client and JavaScript object models. Additionally, you will learn to access and manipulate SharePoint lists using REST API. For the app development, you will build a SharePoint hosted app that uses SharePoint components. Also, you will create a provider hosted app that utilized Windows Azure web app, SQL, no SQL tables and BLOB storage. We will discuss app security, developer workflow, and deployment options in details.

Learn the following topics:

  • All the topics covered in the Fundamentals / Administration courses.
  • Learn the most important aspects of the SharePoint client, JavaScript, and REST APIs.
  • Build and deploy SharePoint hosted app that uses pages, ribbon actions, lists, and app parts.
  • Learn about app deployment in an organization and SharePoint app store licensing model.
  • Understand developer workflow.
  • Understand app security
  • Build an MVC provider hosted app that resides on Windows Azure.
  • Use entity framework to access SQL Azure data.
  • Use Azure blobs and no SQL tables storage, CORS, signed URLs, and REST APIs
