- This course occurs at the intersection of two pieces of software, Microsoft SharePoint 2013, Microsoft Access 2013. But it is not a beginning course on either of those two topics. I'm going to assume that you are already at least a SharePoint 2013 power user. If you're not and you'd like a brush up on SharePoint 2013, I would recommend two courses in the lynda.com training library, SharePoint Online Essential Training or SharePoint Server 2013 Essential Training. Take the course that is appropriate for the version of SharePoint that you will be developing your Access web apps in.
And you'll need to have Access 2013 and skills to use it. If you haven't used Access in a while, you will want to spend some time looking at Access before you jump into it as a development environment. There've been some major changes particularly to how web databases have moved to web apps in Access 2013. So, even if you're experience is as recent as Access 2010, I would like to encourage you to take a look at Adam Wilbert's wonderful Access 2013 Essential Training course for a bit of a brush up before you come back here and create Microsoft Access web apps for use in SharePoint.
So, two different sets of skills, a power user in SharePoint and a power user in Access, and you'll be fine. You don't need to be a developer in either, but you do need to be experienced in both before we continue.
