Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 is reportedly the FASTEST SELLING and GROWING product in Microsoft history! Bigger than Windows 95, bigger than Office suites, bigger than anything. Consequently, the DEMAND for all things SharePoint is huge. I am doing nothing but training in SharePoint development these days, and the gap in the marketplace for skilled SharePoint Developers is critical.
We’ll talk about how to get started with SharePoint customization with Visual Studio, and especially what the best practices are. We’ll even take a bit of time up front to show you SharePoint – so come even if you’ve never seen the product before and want to know what all the buzz is about!
So this ambitious talk has the following objectives:
1. Whirlwind tour of Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 features
2. Whirlwind tour of MOSS 2007 Standard and Enterprise Features
3. Setting up your very own MOSS 2007 Development Environment
4. Best practices for SharePoint customization using Visual Studio
5. Develop and deploy a custom web part and custom workflow using Visual Studio
6. Development resources
The best practices will cover:
1. Using a “code beside” technique for your ASPX pages and deploying to the GAC
2. Using “The Feature” to package your customization
3. Using Solution Packages (WSP) files to deploy your feature
44. Automation of Visual Studio Project generation and Solution Package generation using Ted Pattison’s new STSDEV utility!
