Project Server 2013 is based on the Project Server Interface (PSI) web service framework introduced in Office Project Server 2007. The Project Server 2013 platform is built with the .NET Framework 4. Project Web App requires SharePoint Server 2013 as a base for the functionality of new features, such as the client-side object model (CSOM) for access to Project Server in the cloud, version 4 of the Windows Workflow Foundation (WF4), and the OData service for the reporting database tables. Project Professional 2013 can use the new task pane apps for Office.

Project 2013 client programming includes an introduction to task pane apps in Project Professional 2013. A separate SDK includes articles and references for apps in Project and the other Office 2013 clients. For more information, see the Office 2013 developer documentation.
