When and When Not To Use the New SP2013 App Model with Alex Randall
This discussion based session is targeted for architects, decision makers, and developers who are familiar with custom solution development with Visual Studio. The new App Model for SharePoint 2013 is a major shift in how we develop certain kinds of solutions for SharePoint. This session will talk about when to use it and when not to use it. We will cover existing scenarios in SharePoint 2010 and how they map to SharePoint 2013 with the new App Model. Let's break through the marketing and get the facts in an easy understand way.
