This is an article I wrote for Redmond Magazine. Why SharePoint professionals need to embrace SharePoint’s new API model of development and deployment.
SharePoint is often touted as the Swiss Army knife of enterprise collaboration and productivity. But like most blades on a Swiss Army knife, each separate tool isn’t always that sharp or practical as the user would like them to be. For that reason, I predict that SharePoint developers, like other developers, will become mostly APIs or API plumbers.
