Build SharePoint Apps with ShareCoffee

Developing SharePoint Apps the easy, fast and reliable way

About the Book

SharePoint App Development is the future when we're talking about extending SharePoint 2013 OnPrem or SharePoint Online as part of Microsoft's Office365. 

When building those Apps for SharePoint a lot of pitfalls may prevent you from building Apps in the time frame you've initially thought. ShareCoffee is an abstraction layer on top of SharePoint's API in order to get rid of all these pain points and pitfalls.

This book provides a great introduction into ShareCoffee and highlights all it's features and functionality using samples that you can follow without having years of SharePoint development know how.
