Course description

There are two service applications that are central to most of the exciting new features in SharePoint 2013: search and managed metadata. We’ll start by looking at what these are all about, how you work with them and how they work together. Next we’ll look at how Design Manager can be used to create a custom master page from a web template. To close out the course we’ll look at how search driven publishing decouples navigation and the underlying storage. We’ll also look at improvements for images and videos and talk about metadata based navigation.


A basic understanding of .NET and ASP.NET experience with SharePoint 2007 or 2010 are helpful, but not required. No particular programming experience is needed, but the course is taught from a developer’s perspective.
