Learn some tricks on how to make JavaScript / client-side development easier.

Unlike cloud apps, SharePoint Hosted Apps cannot have a server footprint on the SharePoint host. Instead all custom business logic is manifested and runs within the user’s browser. This can prove to be a challenge with some developers who are used to working with the server-side object model in SharePoint. In this session you’ll learn some tricks on how to make JavaScript / client-side development easier and at the same time how you can make your SharePoint Hosted App into a single-page app that’s very responsive and user friendly very quickly!

You will Learn:

  • How to incorporate TypeScript into your development to provide more structure with JavaScript
  • How to build a single page application as a SharePoint Hosted App
  • Development and debugging tips and tricks for building SharePoint Hosted Apps
