Course series description:

The opening course in this series is SharePoint 2013 Fundamentals by Rob Windsor. Rob will introduce the basics of SharePoint such as creating your first site collection, linking your SharePoint farm to a database and adding various native and downloaded SharePoint apps.

Next, Andrew Connell will guide you through the SharePoint 2013 Developer Ramp-up. This is a five-part series of courses beginning with the basics of SharePoint development practices as well as some of the tools you'll need to manage your SharePoint farm. From the basics, the ramp-up moves on to tactics for developing various solutions and apps, then onward to configuring your UI and templates. The last two courses in the ramp-up will cover security as well as server-side and client-side deployments.

To follow your ramp-up, Sahil Malik guides you through the next six courses, which are part of the Understanding Sharepoint 2013 series. This starts off with a taste of SharePoint history, then quickly moves on to configuring various tasks within SharePoint. This includes an in-depth look at the SharePoint development model from console applications to SharePoint-hosted apps. Later in the series, you'll change gears with Windows Solution Packages (WSPs) and working with SharePoint in Visual Studio. Finally, the last courses in the series will go over both REST and CSOM before showing you how to create your own custom SharePoint apps.

The next three courses for this series are the final courses, and they're also part of a series. This time around you'll rejoin Rob Windsor for the opening course in the SharePoint 2013 Development series. Rob starts out in SharePoint 2013 Development: Client Object Model and REST API by covering REST and CSOM in more depth, then you'll move forward with Scot Hillier in SharePoint 2013 Search Development to become immersed in the search features of SharePoint. Matthew McDermott finishes the path with a deep look into SharePoint 2013 search in the SharePoint 2013 Search Back To Front course.
