​It’s hardly possible to talk about SharePoint development without a good dose of client-side technologies getting tossed into the mix. Server-side isn’t the only object model to consider – client-side object model (CSOM) anyone? – and then there are the REST APIs. Plain old JavaScript or jQuery? Nick Hadlee and Gary Payne's session​​ will be enlightening for developers who want to get away from the more traditional server-side options and understand the client side of SharePoint inluding it's new Display Templates.
