1 Designing for SharePoint 2013

2 Session Overview SharePoint MVP, Marc Anderson, will introduce you to the possibilities of design and customization in SharePoint Tour the newest interface features, learn best practices, and discover exciting new ways to interact with your SharePoint 2013 environment. While we can still implement designs in SharePoint 2013 the “old way” we’re used to, there are new capabilities that can make the process easier for both designers who are very familiar with SharePoint and those designers who have never worked with SharePoint. We’ll look at the new Design Manager capabilities and learn how to create and integrate Master pages, Display Templates, and Page Layouts. Not only does the Design Manager make it easier to create new designs for SharePoint from scratch, it can also help you manage your existing designs after an upgrade. The Design Manager even allows designers to use the tools they know and love like Dreamweaver, Photoshop, or any other HTML editor.

6 What’s theSolution? SharePoint Use SharePoint as an out-of-box application whenever possible - We designed the new SharePoint UI to be clean, simple and fast and work great out-of-box. We encourage you not to modify it which could add complexity, performance and upgradeability and to focus your energy on working with users and groups to understand how to use SharePoint to improve productivity and collaboration and identifying and promoting best practices in your organization. “The New SharePoint” by Jeff Teper on the Microsoft SharePoint Team Blog
