“Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” – L. Frank Baum
Moving forward on our quest to begin migrating from SP2010 to SP 2013, I think we may all be off to see the wizard indeed!
There are many great resources available for learning about what is happening with SharePoint 2013. Mostly I would say that overall if you had access to SharePoint Designer, it appears that you probably need to consider looking into a obtaining a test envirnoment by way of a VM and installing Visual Studio 2012.
This of course is pertaining to customizing and creating highly funtional business solutions.
Quick Notes from Module 3:
SP2013 Dev Tools [Ted Pattison]

Standalone apps that provide specific configuration info and functional components so a SP site.
