Someone previously deployed a custom built sharepoint site to our sharepoint 2013 farm but they have now left the company. The site uses a few custom pages, InfoPath forms, and UDC data connectors. I'm unfamiliar with developing in sharepoint but wouldn't I need access to some kind of codebehind files as with traditional .net web development or would I already have access to everything I need by connecting to the server using SharePoint Designer 2013?

Although it is possible to use a code behind within SharePoint, it is not at all common practice. It would be safe to say you do not need to be concerned with code behind files unless you do some very deep custom development. Become familiar with Central Administration, Site Settings, managing and configuring SharePoint service application through Central Administration and PowerShell and know how to use SharePoint Designer 2013 for working with data connections and you will be okay. None of this comes over night nor can it be explained in one paragraph, so get some good documentation and training material and you will be okay.

Hope that helps,

That makes me feel a little more confidence but I need 100% reassurance that I am not relying on code behind that make break at some point. I have the user sandbox service turned off and everything seems to be running fine. From what I have read so far, it is my assumption that if there was code behind, it would be running within this sandbox service.

As far as the InfoPath forms, I know they are used in the workflows but I can't seem to locate those files. I believe InfoPath forms themselves may have their own code behind as well. Is there any way to find out?
