This weekend I will be presenting a couple of SharePoint 2010 developer sessions at the Silicon Valley Code Camp. There will be almost 200 different sessions in 2 days with over 2,000 attendees. I will be hosting the SharePoint track on Saturday Oct 9th. On Saturday we will cover a brief overview of getting started with SharePoint development. So if you have been waiting to get into the SharePoint pool, now is the time. Also on Sunday there will be another SharePoint track covering more advanced topics. Did I mention this is all FREE?
WOW this thing is HUGE!! I am amazed by the number of developers coming in on a weekend to hear a ton of great content. We are pushing 3,000 people.
We have put together a great SharePoint developer track at Code Camp. The goal is to introduce SharePoint development to beginners and throw out a few tips and tricks to the advanced developers out there. The event is filling fast so if you plan to come, sign up now and mark the SharePoint sessions to intend to come to on the site so we can plan the room sizes accordingly.
Are you developer who is new to SharePoint? SharePoint 2010 has many new developer oriented features. This session is a lap around SharePoint 2010 for developers providing a brief look and code- based demos of the major new features in building user interfaces, building on the data platform, and general programmability.. Demo-heavy, it will cover tooling, services and deployment and will introduce you to the key concepts and practices you need to know to get engaged with SharePoint development.
Now that you can install Microsoft SharePoint 2010 on the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems, what is the best way to do it? There are many considerations from RAM and CPU to sample content and custom properties. One of the keys is PowerShell scripting to create sites, tear down sites, configure list schema, and clean up log files. In this session, we show you how easy it is to get SharePoint on your development machine, we share the requirements to get this done, we provide easy samples of scripts to set up and tear down your development environment, and we cover SharePoint developer options with Windows 7 virtualization and enterprise environments.
A common request for developers is to surface internal SharePoint data within the Office client applications. This allows users to interact with SharePoint list data (contacts, calendars, custom lists, etc.) in the direct context of their document editing experience. In this session you will learn the recipe for creating these kinds of solutions, and you will understand what kinds of benefits you can bring to users. You will learn to use the SharePoint client OM and the ADO.NET Data Services (REST APIs) to access SharePoint data and present them in add-ins. The session concludes with the deployment of the add-in to a shared location so it can be accessed centrally.
SharePoint is a rich development platform with a large community actively developing solutions. The challenge has always been the balance between creating solutions and deploying them in a way that you trust will not damage or impair the SharePoint farm. Learn how sandboxed solutions in SharePoint 2010 provide a framework for safe and rapid deployment of solutions with SP2010/Silverlight and how they can work well in BPOS solutions.. You’ll learn how farm administrators can monitor solutions and how site collection administrators install and manage solutions and features. You will also learn advanced techniques to safely work around some of the sandboxed solution’s limitations.
Are you ready to rev up your SharePoint sites with Silverlight 4? SharePoint and Silverlight make an unbeatable combination for building rich web applications. In this session, you will learn how to develop these solutions more easily than ever with Visual Studio 2010 and SharePoint's new client object model and REST services. This talk will demonstrate building Silverlight web parts for SharePoint 2010 using Visual Studio 2010 and deploying them to SharePoint.
