3. Development Overview This sets a perfect “taste-test” for the various choices SharePoint offers. Now that you know more of what the SharePoint sandwich is, this course is designed to help you know where to start (without making a mess). In this course Sahil goes from a 30,000 to a 10,000 foot view. It starts by looking at tips and tricks in using PowerShell for SharePoint on the job. Then it dives into Console Applications, a perfect excuse to start poking around the object model. Sahil does a great job demonstrating the basics of sandbox solutions and farm solutions using Visual Studio 2012, and wraps up with SharePoint Apps. Click here for the TOC.
