It was a long time coming and I have wanted to do this for quite some time … but I have just heard that the book I co-wrote with Steve Fox, Donovan Follette and tech edited by Andrew Connell has just been sent to the printers!
As the name suggests … It’s all about starting development on SharePoint 2013. As you may have read or heard there is quite a bit of new stuff for developers in 2013 and this book aims to serve as a guide for those looking to grapple with those changes.
Topics include … the new app model, developer tools, Azure, building and packaging apps, publishing in the SharePoint Store, distributing them internal to an organization, OAuth, Client Side OM, REST APIs, integrated SP + Office apps, Remote Event Receivers, Business Connectivity Services, Office Services & Workflow.
A core theme throughout the book is learning about the new development options available in 2013 and how and when to take advantage of them.
I wrote five of the fifteen chapters …
- Developing, Integrating, and Building Applications
in SharePoint 2013
- Packaging, and Deploying SharePoint 2013 Apps
- Distributing SharePoint 2013 Apps
- Overview of the Client-Side Object Model and REST APIs
- Overview of OAuth in SharePoint 2013
Like I mentioned above, writing a book was something I have wanted to do for a while now but never got around to it. I really have to thank Steve Fox for giving me the opportunity to collaborate on this.
It should be available soon and is already available for pre-order on Amazon:
Get it while its HOT!
