This project uses the new Client-Side Rendering (CSR) technique in SharePoint 2013 to replace the standard list-view of an Announcements list with a Carousel (aka Slider).
The project is also created using the new SharePoint-App model introduced by SharePoint 2013, creating a SharePoint-hosted App. See this blog post for more technical details, and submit your comments/suggestions: http://nettitude.wordpress.com/2013/01/27/creating-a-carousel-in-a-sharepoint-app-using-client-side-rendering/.
Basically it combines a series of useful techniques to deploy via a standalone solution the custom list (based on the out-of-the-box Announcements list), create a new instance of the list, create (and set as default) the new custom list-view which as soon
Everything you need to execute and use the project is included in the source code.
Simply hoping it shall serve as a learning example for anyone discovering all the newest additions for the Developers in SharePoint 2013.
