Here’s another recorded session from the DevLink conference.
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. When you need to go beyond the built in capabilities of the product, SharePoint also provides a rich set of APIs to code against. This session is designed to introduce you to the foundational topics required to build customizations on the SharePoint platform. Specifically we will cover: Features, the solutions framework, the server object model, and building simple Web parts. This session will be valuable for those working with SharePoint 2007 or 2010.
