Course description

This course is intended for .NET developers who want to learn how to create custom SharePoint solutions. This course requires and understanding of Web development with .NET technologies and Visual Studio. It does not require knowledge of SharePoint, but that is helpful to get the most out of the course. The topics in this course apply to all versions of SharePoint 2010 and all of the examples work in the free version, SharePoint Foundation 2010. SharePoint 2010 has reached a new level of features for .NET and web development that far exceeds previous versions. This course will cover SharePoint 2010 as a development platform, which includes creating sites, lists and pages. In creating these items you will be introduced to the many new features that SharePoint 2010 has to offer.

The course will then cover programming lists with managed code including list instances, CAML queries and more. The SharePoint Client model is covered next with object instances, Silverlight and other elements. Then you will learn about branding for pages and styles, and then the importance of Sandbox Solutions. You will also see client side programming in JavaScript, as well as Site definitions and Web Templates. The instructor will then cover Security, Business Services and Workflow basics. To end the course you will see how to program navigation and the ribbon bars.
