In the last few months, I have noticed some new acronyms creep up in the SharePoint community. What is it? Well as a developer, it’s stuff you’re probably already doing. You take a search in your favorite search engine and you won’t find the terms mentioned much with the earliest mention I could see starting around October of last year. The definitions will seem obvious when you see them.
- CAM – Cloud App Model. This is basically referring to the new SharePoint app model introduced with SharePoint 2013.
- FTC – Full Trust Code. The way you have been developing with previous versions of SharePoint using solution packages and server side code.
More recently I also saw a reference to PTC as well in a post by @mkashman. What’s that? Partially trusted code. In this case, we are talking about Sandboxed solutions. When I think of PTC, I still think of partially trusted code using CAS policies.
Any how, it’s no secret that there is a big push for us to transition our code to the new cloud app model. You’ll see more and more references of “FTC to CAM”. There is even a session or two on this at SharePoint Conference 2014.
What do you think? Did you have any idea what these acronyms were when you first saw them?
