Step by Step: Building Search Driven Applications with SharePoint 2013
Search-driven solutions are applications that use a search engine to drive the data access and results presentation. Simple examples of such applications include image or travel searches in Bing. Microsoft SharePoint 2013 offers developers new ways to extend search to create search-based solutions and Apps. In this session, we will build a Search-driven SharePoint app that allows a law firm to manage proposals, people, offices, and experiences. The app will auto-provision components in Azure, and use the CSOM/REST API to access SharePoint Search across databases and document libraries in Office 365. Additionally, we will present a mobile companion app for searching the data. Attendees will exit the session with a strong understanding of search-driven solutions and many new ideas for using search to deliver end-user productivity.
