At this stage in the book, you’ve now been introduced to what SharePoint is, you’ve learned about the new app model, and you’ve even written a couple of applications for SharePoint 2013. From here on out, you’re going to dive deeper into the developer world.

This chapter covers the different tools that you as a developer will want to have in your toolkit. You may have or use more or fewer tools than what this chapter discusses, but ultimately this chapter is about the core developer tools you should either use or need to be aware of when embarking on your SharePoint development projects.

With that in mind, this chapter covers three main developer tools: Web-based development using the new Napa development app, SharePoint Designer 2013, and Visual Studio 2012. Depending on your skills and design goals, you might use these environments or tools in different ways, and so the goal of this chapter is to not only introduce you to these different possibilities but to also walk you through some practical examples.
