Microsoft is holding a free webinar later this month on reimagining SharePoint development. Specifically they want you to think differently about building customizations with apps vs. the way we have been thinking with solutions. The premise is good and frankly is a core point I'm going to make in a few weeks when I keynote the SharePoint Summit 2013 in Toronto.
Here's the details on the Microsoft webinar and registration information:
Reimagine SharePoint Development: A better way to customize SharePointJoin Senior Product Marketing Manager, Keenan Newton, and special guest Partner Director of Apps Program Management, Robert Lefferts, as we kick off our new site centered around migrating SharePoint solutions to apps. We will discuss the history of SharePoint customizations and where the SharePoint development platform is going. We will also highlight the benefits of the cloud app model and answer any questions that you may have. The webcast will be broadcasted on Channel 9.
May 20, 2013 @ 9AM (GMT-0800)
This will be the first live webcast in a series of webcasts focused on migrating SharePoint solutions to apps. These webcasts along with soon coming content on http://www.reimaginespdev.com will help SharePoint developers take meaningful steps in planning for the app model.
