Managing Customizations in SharePoint Online with Andrew Connell

About Show #569

SharePoint has never been more manageable! Richard chats with Andrew Connell about his experiences around using the latest programming models for SharePoint and how they stick to more standardized client-side development models that are easier to secure, audit and don't mess with your servers quite so much. The conversation starts out with a discussion around the Office 365 APIs and the programmability they bring to Office 365 as a whole, while also sticking to good secure standards - this is the stuff that Microsoft itself depends on! Andrew talks about how the cloud-first approach to SharePoint has strengthened and simplified SharePoint on-premises, so we all benefit!
