About the Session

Join Christian Holslin of Gig Werks for a presentation on the New App Model available in SharePoint. SharePoint Apps are mini applications that extend what you can do with SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online. They are easy-to-use and allow site owners to install, upgrade, and uninstall them on their SharePoint sites without farm or site collection admins. During this presentation we will discuss what the new application model means for businesses and what type of Apps are currently available in the SharePoint Marketplace and how apps can be built. We will also discuss the future potential for what apps can do both on premise and in the cloud with Office 365.
