Since 2016 Microsoft has been urging SharePoint developers to move away from ‘full trust’ and server-side customizations, and instead to develop client-side customizations. This is for a number of key reasons:
- According to Microsoft client-side customizations are more secure.
- Client-side customizations open SharePoint development to a wider range of developers who know how to use client-side languages, but are not familiar with .NET (the language traditionally used to customize SharePoint).
- Client-side customizations support the ‘modern user interface’ that is now familiar to companies using SharePoint Online or SharePoint 2016.
Waldek Mastykarz, Microsoft MVP, SharePoint PnP Core Team Member and Product Owner – Risk Prevention and Governance at Rencore explained the significance of this move with regards to Microsoft’s strategy:
“Microsoft want to move developers away from writing server-side code for a number of reasons. However, possibly the most important reason is that in future, Microsoft are likely to depreciate support for any ‘full trust’ code customizations”.
To learn more about the updates, visit Rencore at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando, Florida, this week. The team will be providing demos of the update to SPCAF today and all week at booth #1645.
