Office Web Apps enables users to view and edit Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote files using a supported web browser on computers and mobile devices. While this piece focuses on the integration of Office Web Apps Server 2013 and SharePoint Server 2013, OWA is as well available through SharePoint Online and Office 365, SkyDrive, and Office 2013.
Below are the steps I have followed to integrate Office Web Apps Server 2013 and SharePoint Server 2013.
- Install and configure SharePoint Server 2013. In this instance, I am running a SharePoint Server 2013 RTM, Windows Server 2012, and SQL Server 2012.
- Install Office Web Apps Server 2013 in a distinct server. Office Web Apps Server could not be installed on a SharePoint server.
- Activate Web Server Role, Application Server Role, and Ink and Handwriting Services Feature in the Office Web Apps server.
- Deploy Office Web Apps Server 2013 using the guidance provided at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj219455.aspx .
- Configure SharePoint Server 2013 to use Office Web Apps 2013 using the guidance provided at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff431687.aspx.
At this point, we could now enjoy viewing and editing our Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote files using a web browser on computers and mobile devices.
Hoping that I have shared some points on SharePoint.
The Project Site in SharePoint 2013 Preview is designed to manage lightweight projects and for the team to collaborate on these. In this paper I will highlight some of its features:
NOTE: At this moment, SharePoint 2013 is already released to manufacturing. Since its bits are not yet available for public download, this paper uses its Preview Version.
1. The facility to create a new Project Site.
2. The Project Summary at the Home page on the Project Site.
3. The Timeline on the Tasks list.
4. The facility to open a project with Microsoft Project 2013 Preview.
Moreover, the Project Site has other ground-breaking features, including library for project documents, shared project calendar, notebook for project information. And if a Project Site is associated with the Project Server 2013 Preview, it can as well be utilized to capture project issues, risks, and deliverables.

One of the coolest features that SharePoint Server 2013 Preview has is the synchronization of our online file in SharePoint with our local copy.
Below are the quick steps:
Let us start by creating a Document Library. For our purpose, we may name our document library as Demonstration.
In our Demonstration document library, let us click the SYNC button on upper-right.
If necessary, let us change the directory where we want to save the local copy of the document.
At this point, we can upload a document in our Demonstration library and sync it with the local folder we have defined on the previous step.
With that, we have synchronized our document library with our local folder.
Moreover, whatever changes we made on our local copy of the file will be reflected on our online copy in SharePoint.
Hoping I have shared some tips!
