SharePoint applications begin a fundamental shift away from building code that runs within the SharePoint process. Along with this shift comes the start of a movement away from using the historical API sets that don’t provide support for this newly decoupled code. In this chapter you learn about and explore the updated and new options available for working with SharePoint at a programmatic level. You also learn when is best to use the various options, how they work, and most importantly, how to use them to your advantage. As this chapter explains, many of the design philosophies, technologies, and principles that went into SharePoint are shared with services on the Internet with which developers are already familiar, such as Twitter and Facebook. This means learning them should be more straightforward and far simpler than learning a proprietary system.
