SharePoint 2010 Training Units

Getting Started with SharePoint 2010

Welcome to the SharePoint 2010 learning center. SharePoint 2010 includes numerous new capabilities and features for professional developers. In this welcome video you will hear from some of the team members behind the training kit to understand what the kit is all about and what are plans are for the future of the SharePoint learning center on Channel 9.

SharePoint 2010 Developer Roadmap

SharePoint 2010 includes numerous new capabilities and features for professional developers most of which are highlighted in this unit. SharePoint 2010 makes developing those solutions easier, quicker, and more flexible. Much of the work that the developer had to do in the past with earlier versions of SharePoint has been replaced with simple configuration of the SharePoint 2010 platform, use of Visual Studio 2010 and SharePoint Designer 2010 or with calls to the SharePoint API.

Visual Studio 2010 Tools for SharePoint 2010

This unit will provide you with an overview of SharePoint development with Visual Studio 2010. Specific topics covered will include an overview of the project and item templates, a walkthrough of the designers included, and areas of extensibility within Visual Studio 2010 that can enhance SharePoint development. Visual Studio 2010 includes support out of the box for the most common types of projects that you may want to build with SharePoint 2010 as well as new features for more easily defining features, solutions, and wizards to walk through the most common settings for each project type.

UI Enhancements

The look and feel of SharePoint has radically changed from earlier versions of the product. In addition to being more accessible to the user it allows for improved extension points and fewer workarounds. The new user interface components that you can extend and build applications which include the fluent UI ribbon and an extensible dialog system.

Lists and Schemas

In a typical system data is somewhat normalized – not all of the system's data exists in one large table or list. Instead data exists in sets of tables or lists which have one entry for each entity across multiple tables.

LINQ to SharePoint

LINQ is a new data access paradigm which allows users to express SQL like syntax against a variety of data sources. LINQ can improve performance by allowing the back end data source to decide the best way to solve the query. SharePoint now fully supports LINQ for querying lists so that you can query information from the platform in a more condensed, easier to understand format.

Client Object Model

In SharePoint 2010 there are a number of object models that can be used by developers to access the server. The Client Object Model (Client OM) is a unified model which uses the same or similar programming concepts as the Server Object Model (Server OM). The Client OM can be accessed via web services, via a client (JavaScript) API, and via REST.

Workflow

In SharePoint 2010 you can associate workflows with a site so you need not associate a workflow instance with a specific item in a list. Site-level workflows are a powerful mechanism to create generic functionality using the power of Windows Workflow Foundation (WF).

Services Architecture

In this session we will discuss the new Service Architecture model for SharePoint 2010. In SharePoint 2010 the Service platform has been re-written with a new more scalable and flexible architecture.

Accessing External Data

In SharePoint 2010 Business Connectivity Services (BCS) enables integration with back end systems. Business Connectivity Services includes a set of presentation features, a connectivity framework and tooling within SPD and Visual Studio that enable developers and ITPros to connect to external data and services and to surface this data in SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010.This session will provide an overview of the BCS capabilities and usage in SharePoint 2010.

Enterprise Content Management

From a free form Wiki to a highly controlled intranet or internet site, learn about all of the new Web Content Management features in SharePoint 2010. This session will cover enhancements to the core authoring UI, publishing infrastructure, the Content Query Web Part, and content deployment.

Extending Search

This session will provide an overview of the enterprise search product line in SharePoint 2010. We've brought together the best of SharePoint Search and FAST ESP, resulting in the most complete enterprise search product line in the industry. In this session we'll talk about our overall strategy for enterprise search and delineate each of the key search products in SharePoint 2010.

Business Intelligence

There has been considerable investment in the Business Intelligence capabilities of SharePoint 2010. From new product capabilities like balanced scorecards, interactive dashboards, and line of business integration to improvements in Excel rendered content with Excel Services, improved and new capabilities for Self-Service information access, and creation of BI assets. In this session, we will cover the major components and identify the new capabilities.

Sandboxed Solutions

SharePoint 2010 adds a new deployment model for SharePoint called Sandboxed Solutions. It is a controlled solution packaging format that offers SharePoint Server Farm owners a way to easily mitigate risk that custom code will cause issues for them. It does this by restricting the API's that can be called and governing resources that can be used. Because of this Sandboxed Solutions provide a solution package that can be easily deployed to a shared server environment. This talk will describe what Sandboxed Solutions are, it will demonstrate how to create them with Visual Studio 2010 and how to deploy and monitor them on SharePoint farms.

SharePoint 2010 Security

SharePoint Server 2010 incorporates a new, more powerful and flexible authentication model that works with any corporate identity system, including Active Directory® directory services, LDAP-based directories, application-specific databases, and new user-centric identity models such as LiveID. This model uses claims-based authentication and a new product, code-named “Geneva.” Claims-based authentication is built around the concept of an identity and is based on standards — WS-Federation, WS-Trust — and protocols like the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML).

SharePoint 2010 Best Practices

SharePoint 2010 is a very large product with many options. This can be challenging for developers to understand what the best way to accomplish a given task is. In this unit you will learn about some the most common best practices are for developers who are new to SharePoint.

SharePoint 2010 Security

SharePoint development requires that you develop on the same machine in which SharePoint is installed. Many developers choose to use Hyper-V VHDs to host their development environment. In this unit you will learn how to build a SharePoint 2010 development on a Hyper-V virtual machine.

Upgrading Custom Solutions

Microsoft SharePoint Foundation provides new members that make it possible for you to upgrade custom Features through versioning and declarative upgrade actions. In this unit you will learn how to leverage the new feature upgrade capabilities in SharePoint 2010.

Upgrading VSeWss Solutions to SharePoint 2010

Today there are many solutions written using the Visual Studio for WSS (VSeWSS) tool. This tool was one of the tools that developers used to build SharePoint 2007 applications. In this unit you will learn about how to upgrade your existing SharePoint 2007 applications to SharePoint 2010.
