Description

Web Parts are the staple user interface component of SharePoint. The recently introduced cloud app model now introduces new ways for creating robust user experiences in SharePoint. One of these user experience types is called an app part which has many similarities to Web Parts and is a natural migration from legacy Web Parts. Learn about how you can migrate your existing SharePoint Web Parts to the app parts with the cloud app model.

      I can't understand what she's saying. Her accent is too thick and she talks way too fast.

      Great video, her accent is strong but I could follow all that she said. I like the example of using search and REST to get to the user's information.

      Her speech is fine, accent is slight and very easy to understand even for me as a non-native English speaker.
      I do agree the pace is a bit fast at times. It will be great if the demo code is available for download.

      I promise guys we will get the demo code for download up as soon as we can... Is it just the app code you want to see, or would you like to see the SharePoint solution as well?

      Why is this listed as being by Issam Rashid, Keenan Newton when in fact the speaker says she is called Zena (or Zeena) something ?

      Please somewhere say who the speaker is so we don't need to guess the name and/or spelling of the speaker's name when referring to a web cast.

      Cool demo, but why hard-coding the User Profile service application ID (guid)? I doubt that deploying this app part to some other SharePoint farm will work...

      This was excellent!!!! But lets not downplay that you have to recode all your C# into javascript.

      Can we presume we do not need SharePoint 2013 installed locally?

      I also want to ask Microsoft to please give us a way to create Webpart Properties in NAPA. Ideally we would be able to build this example with NAPA so that we can build this example without SharePoint or Visual studio!

      Is there anything that will automatically migrate old C# web parts into the App model?  I love writing JavaScript, but my client won't like the cost
