Topic: JavaScript Libraries for SharePoint Developers

Abstract: Whether you are developing for Office 365 or SharePoint on-premises, these days you are going to need some “go-to” JavaScript libraries to enhance your solutions. No matter what project I am on, over the past few years there are a number of fantastic JavaScript libraries I have learned to use and integrate with great success. They work with Apps, content editor web parts, .NET solutions, and anywhere else you can utilize JavaScript (Even CSS!). Some of my favorites covered in this session are jQuery, SPServices, jqPlot, and DataTables.

In this session I will show how to get up and running developing with JavaScript for SharePoint in multiple ways. Then I will demo each of my “go-to” libraries as well as a few others. I will discuss real world application of these libraries based on previous clients where I have used them. I will wrap up with a nice combined demo that works great in both Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises.
