Without a doubt, Search is one of the key investment areas in SharePoint 2013.

In this article, I will show you how easy and simple it is to find information in a document library and a list providing a great user experience when searching for information.
Access and Manipulate Data in Your CloudShare SharePoint 2013 Farm from Anywhere with CSOM, REST and ODataDecember 16th, 2012 | Author: Danny Jessee | Filed under: CloudShare, Dev / Test, SharePoint | Tags: CloudShare, CSOM, OData, SharePoint, SharePoint 2013, SharePoint Configuration
SharePoint 2010 introduced the client-side object model (CSOM) to allow developers to write applications which interact with SharePoint from client-side code. In SharePoint 2013, Microsoft steps things up a notch by allowing developers to use Representational State Transfer (REST) in conjunction with the Open Data (OData) protocol to perform Create/Read/Update/Delete (CRUD) operations against SharePoint sites and lists for nearly every API in the CSOM. Through the magic of CloudShare web access, we can leverage the CSOM along with REST and OData to interact with our SharePoint 2013 environments from literally anywhere, using any type of client! All code samples in this blog post will be run from my local workstation over 1,000 miles away from my SharePoint 2013 server running in the CloudShare datacenter!

I’ve been asked many times which site template can serve particular required needs and what differs one template from another, so I decided to write a quick overview of all the available SharePoint 2013 site templates and their common uses. I’ve also prepared a SharePoint 2013 environment configured with all site types for some hands-on experience.
