JavaScript for SharePoint Developers

SharePoint users and developers constantly seek ways to make SharePoint both more interactive and better able to relay mission critical information. At the same time, modern web application design discourages frequent full page reloads, and encourages interfaces which leverage JavaScript and behind the scenes service calls to provide a more dynamic user experience. In this training course, students gain hands-on experience creating and deploying JavaScript enabled applications into either on-premise SharePoint servers or into Office 365.
