You have been blaming developers for bringing down your farm, wrestling with them over configuration changes, or just laughing at them because they wear stupid t-shirts. Making fun of developers is a great way to pass the time, I am sure we all agree on that. However, you have been secretly watching Build keynotes, sitting in on developer sessions at a conference, or reading developer blogs behind closed doors because… well, it seems so cool! Fear not, you are not alone. If this is you and you do not know where to start, this session is for you. We will cover the essential tools you need to know to get started and go from Hello World to your first real client-side web part in only a few minutes. Don’t worry, we’ll also talk about the serious stuff — like how to manage these apps and how they fit into your existing operational service management processes. No farm solutions involved or you get your money back.
