SharePoint 2016 is a versatile development platform for building apps and solutions with varying scopes that address a wide range of needs. You can build server-side farm solutions that extend core SharePoint capabilities. SharePoint 2016 offers a new flexible development model—you can use SharePoint 2016 to create apps for SharePoint that take advantage of standard web technologies, such as JavaScript, OAuth, and OData. And SharePoint 2016 provides you with functionality to interact with SharePoint resources and a wide range of hosting options. The new app for SharePoint development model gives you the ability to build apps that take advantage of SharePoint capabilities and that run in the cloud instead of on your SharePoint farm.
