Next week I’ll be presenting a workshop and two breakout sessions at SharePoint Fest in New York City.
DEV 101 – SharePoint 2010/2013 for ASP.NET Developers
SharePoint is an awesome tool. It allows you to build web sites, manage lists of data, collaborate on documents, and so much more – all done through a simple, easy to use, web interface. Even better, SharePoint is built on top of ASP.NET. So, when the platform doesn’t have the functionality you need, you can extend it using the tools in Visual Studio and the SharePoint developer APIs. Unfortunately it’s not all wine and roses. In addition to your ASP.NET development experience you’ll need to learn SharePoint specific concepts, practices and terminology. This session is covers the SharePoint architecture, developer tools, APIs, and the different packaging and deployment models. Its goal is to give you enough to get started developing on the SharePoint platform while laying the foundation for further learning on the subject.
DEV 202 – Integrating SharePoint 2010/2013 and Visual Studio Lightswitch
Visual Studio LightSwitch is a tool that’s designed to let power users build data-centric business applications for the desktop and cloud. The tooling takes care of code generation, data access and common infrastructure needs, allowing the application builder to focus on business logic. If enhanced functionality is required, developers can extend the application with custom .NET code. In terms of data access, LightSwitch applications can use many data sources, including SharePoint 2010 or 2013. In this class, you’ll see how to build client, Web, and mobile LightSwitch applications that use data from SharePoint. You’ll also see how you can use LightSwitch to build SharePoint 2013 Apps.
If you’re in the New York area come on out and let’s connect and talk SharePoint development. There are lots of registration options, you can attend for one, two, or all three days. Use code WINDSOR100 when you register to get a discount.
