I want to try out SharePoint 2013 with Visual Studio 2012.

I'm trying to locate the SharePoint 2013 SDK. Google points me to older posts about Beta SDK releases.

Visual Studio 2012 only has templates for SharePoint 2010.

Since SharePoint 2013 has been released (at least in an RTM capacity) will the SDK be available soon or does anyone know a release date?

Please note that I'm not looking for an answer that points to pre-release bits.


The SDK hasn't been released yet.

  • Only the product group would know ;) – Trevor Seward Nov 2 '12 at 3:41
  • Still in preview :( – H A Jul 2 '13 at 20:07

Please check the below link. Preview SDK for SharePoint 2013



The SharePoint Developer Downloads page points to the SharePoint 2013 SDK as well as the Client Components SDK. It may be useful to also review the SharePoint 2013 Development Overview as there are significant changes in SharePoint development model.
