Getting Started with SharePoint 2010 Development at DevTeach and Prairie DevCon

Published on Author Rob WindsorLeave a comment

I’ll be doing a full-day post-conference session on SharePoint 2010 development at both DevTeach in Ottawa and Prairie DevCon in Winnipeg

This session is a day-long overview of development on the SharePoint 2010 platform. It is designed for those new to SharePoint, but will prove interesting to seasoned SharePoint developers looking to find out about the new features in 2010. We will begin with a look at foundational topics like Feature and Solutions Packages and then see how we can use the developer tooling in Visual Studio 2010 to quickly and effectively build customizations contained in these artifacts. Over the course of the day we will explore the SharePoint developer APIs, how to build custom web parts, working with SharePoint lists and libraries, and options to access data stored in SharePoint.
