SPEAKER: Client Object Model & REST Improvements in SharePoint 2013

SUBJECT: Jerry Yasir, SharePoint MVP

In SharePoint 2013 developers will have the ability to develop SharePoint Apps that utilize a new, much improved Client OM for reading SharePoint content. Now, instead of having access to only about 30% of SharePoint functionality you will have access to about 95%! This demo packed session will provide you with examples of various ways of using Client OM and REST API in SharePoint 2013 to develop applications like SharePoint Apps (and if you don't know what that is you better come to this session!), managed/Silverlight clients and JavaScript enhancements to SharePoint.
