SharePoint 2013 is not just a collection of lists and libraries anymore. It is a big product with lots of built-in out of the box services. We as SharePoint developers used to build a lot on the top of SharePoint, but with rapidly growing product functionality, there is less need for developing custom code. In fact there is more need for consultants that they know SharePoint out of the box services and features and they also know how to configure and use them. The new generation of SharePoint architects, have deep understanding of built-in services and their limits so that they can decide whether to develop custom code or just enable a built-in Service. This approach makes SharePoint development quick and dramatically reduces the cost of maintenance and support.
In this interactive session, we create an application in C# and XAML. Upon building the app there are multiple areas we explore, however the choice of where this session leads is up to the audience. The application will be broken down into multiple scenarios and as the product owners you get to decide what we implement. Topics the users can choose from include using Sensors, Toast Notifications, User Information with Roaming Profiles, Live Tiles and Globalization, to name a few. This talk may require audience participation through the use of mobile devices.
