You can create custom data schema (SharePoint Lists) for SharePoint
Online declaratively in Visual Studio (i.e. with tooling VS provides).
Kendo UI then makes very short work of creating a powerful user
interface. Even if you have never customized SharePoint before, you will
be surprised how rapidly you can learn everything you need to do from a
programming, packaging and deployment perspective to start
developing with SharePoint Online now! Productivity at a level you did
not think possible, guaranteed! Note these techniques will equally apply
to SharePoint 2013 On Premises. The presentation will include an
overview of Kendo UI.
This session was delivered at the Collab365 Summit 2016 and was presented by Ed Musters.
