In this course, students learn core skills that are common to almost all SharePoint development activities. These include working with the server-side and client-side object models, developing and deploying features, solutions, and apps, managing identity and permissions, querying and updating list data, managing taxonomy, using workflow to manage business processes, and customizing the user interface.
The course is intended for professional developers who develop solutions for SharePoint products and technologies in a team-based, medium-sized to large development environment. While some familiarity with SharePoint solution development is required, candidates are not expected to have prior experience with the new features in SharePoint Server 2013.
The ideal candidate is a technical lead with at least four years of SharePoint and web development experience. The candidate is responsible for designing custom code for projects that are deployed to or interact with SharePoint environments. This includes:
Selecting an appropriate approach and building customizations in SharePoint.
Creating and implementing a strategy for solution packaging, deployment, and upgrading.
Identifying SharePoint data and content structures for customizations.
Performing diagnostics and debugging.
Planning and designing applications for scalability and performance.
Identifying and mitigating performance issues of customizations.
