Introduction to SharePoint 2010/2013 Development

Getting started with SharePoint development can be challenging. Since SharePoint is built on top of ASP.NET there are many similarities between ASP.NET and SharePoint development, but there are also many differences. Understanding these differences and how they change the way you build solutions that target the SharePoint platform is one of the keys to becoming an effective SharePoint developer. With this in mind, this full-day workshop has two goals: to introduce you to the tools, APIs and practices used during SharePoint development; and to highlight the areas where SharePoint and ASP.NET development differ.

Specifically we will cover the SharePoint platform architecture, the SharePoint developer environment, Visual Studio tools for SharePoint development, SharePoint developer APIs, building custom Web parts, working with SharePoint lists and libraries, and options to access data stored in SharePoint. All of the material covered in this workshop applies to both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 development. An understanding of Visual Studio and ASP.NET is required.

Audience:
Web Developers, team leads, architects.
