Farewell XSL, Welcome Display Templates

Farewell XSL, Welcome Display Templates

Almost everything was built with XSL in SharePoint 2010, but this technology is a little bit outdated in SharePoint 2013. In this session we will focus on Display Templates. Display Templates leverage HTML and JavaScript instead of XSL to present is content. This new technology is widely used in SharePoint 2013, so this session will be a good starting point if you want to know more about Display Templates. You will learn where and for what these Display Templates are used, and how to create and modify Display Templates. So if HTML and JavaScript is something familiar for you, and want to know more on how you can brand certain elements, than this session is something for you.

Office 365 lessons learnt – developer decisions, tricks and tips [Confirmed]

Office 365 lessons learnt – developer decisions, tricks and tips [Confirmed]

As a developer or technical lead, your early Office 365 projects are likely to raise some big questions. How should you interpret Microsoft's mixed messages on sandbox solutions? How should test environments be handled in the cloud? Do you need to run more than one Office 365 tenancy? When you can't deploy files to the LAYOUTS directory, where should global assets such as CSS and JavaScript be stored? What about automation, when only 30 PowerShell cmdlets are available in SharePoint Online? And just how do you provision Managed Metadata fields, when the on-premises techniques cannot be used?

This session walks through the “dev strategy” decisions we made at Content and Code, and why. Over the course of several demos, we’ll also discuss apps, automation scripts and also advanced techniques such as Continuous Integration for Office 365.

Hopefully even people not expecting to work on an Office 365 development project can come away with flavour of what such a project might look like.

Building No-Code Sandbox WebParts for now and the future

Building No-Code Sandbox WebParts for now and the future

SharePoint is an evolving platform: in 2007, we were all building farm web parts. Then in 2010, we were introduced with sandbox web parts, with the beginnings of the client side object model. In 2013, we are looking at the evolved app model, with a super-charged REST service.

As developers, while it is great to learn about what's coming down the pike, it feels extremely frustrating not knowing what to learn, or attend a session and learn a technology that you can’t put to use because you don’t use the latest and the most cutting edge in your organization.

Let’s take a step back, let’s look at how to build a web part using only JavaScript. Let’s separate the UX from the logic. Then let’s plug in different types of CRUD code to work with different versions of SharePoint, across different data sources: lists, search or user profile.

This session is about learning how to use JavaScript to build amazing web parts, regardless of what version of SharePoint you have.
