SharePoint 2013 Developer, Part 07: Client Side Code

with expert Tim McCarthy

With the advent of SharePoint as a hosted service via SharePoint Online, and also the increasing frequency of IT managers to not want custom code deployed to their SharePoint farms, the client object model has become very important to SharePoint developers. In SharePoint 2013, Microsoft beefed up its web service coverage of almost all of the features available from the browser, and also beefed up the client object model as a proxy to cover all of these web service operations. In addition to providing managed libraries for the .NET framework, Silverlight, Windows Phone, and JavaScript, Microsoft has also exposed the same operations as REST web services with OData support so clients on different platforms (such as non-windows platforms) can easily integrate with SharePoint data. After this you will be able to understand the nuances of both the client object model as well as the REST API that SharePoint provides.
