Sahil Malik has just published a new course: Understanding SharePoint 2013: Part 5 – REST and CSOM
In his 5th installment of the ‘Understanding SharePoint 2013′ series, Sahil takes you deeper into his world.
Want to learn Apps? The path to Apps goes through REST and CSOM; so whether you are writing WSPs or Apps, this is a topic you can’t afford to ignore.
Microsoft is on a mission. A mission to get custom code out of the SharePoint server. But how are we to deploy new functionality? The answer is, using REST and CSOM. Introduced in SharePoint 2010, and greatly improved and expanded in SharePoint 2013, REST and CSOM is one of the fundamental pillars in SharePoint knowledge that you must master.

Sahil Malik has just published a new course: Understanding SharePoint 2013: Part 4 – Conventional Development
On March 5, 2013, Sahil dropped the first 3 courses of this “Understanding SharePoint 2013″ series with the promise of more to come. Well, here he is again with all the style and grace that you have come to expect from him.
SharePoint 2013 supports two main ways of deploying new functionality – WSPs (Windows Solution Packages) and Apps. Apps are new, but WSPs are still good for many key scenarios. This video walks you through the more “SharePointy” topics, and introduces you to authoring WSPs in SharePoint. Having this knowledge is key to understanding Apps.
