SharePoint has five development models: Solutions, Add-Ins, Azure AD Apps, Framework, and JavaScript injection – and that's after you've exhausted the configuration options and excluding the sub-types of development. Needless to say just selecting which development approach and API you want to use is a challenge in and of itself. In this session we'll walk through the options and develop a decision tree for how to select the right SharePoint development model.

You will learn:

  • What the development models are
  • Which development models are supported where
  • How to decide which approach to use.
  • The myths and realities there are to developing for SharePoint
  • How to leverage Office integration and customization to reduce the development effort
