The idea of an API economy is becoming more widely accepted and the trend of software as a service is bigger than ever. As we all know, technology (for the most part) tends to evolve pretty quickly, but it seems like software as a service is really going to be the way of the world moving forward. As a SharePoint developer, I saw the writing on the wall with Office 365/SharePoint Online, but this was further enforced when Andrew Connell published his article Developers: SharePoint isn’t a Platform, SharePoint is a Service. Granted I live in a pretty small corner of the technological universe, but with mobile and cloud becoming more prevalent this software as a service concept is not going to go away anytime soon.
Overall day 3 at CodeMash 2016 was a very long, but good day. The conference “high” is starting to fade a bit and I am sure I am going to only do a handful of sessions on day 4. But even if I don’t attend a single session on day 4, CodeMash has once again been a great experience.
