I’m Andrew May, a programmer-writer on the SharePoint developer documentation team. If you’re like me, you’ve noticed that over the past few years, a number of MSDN blogs have been created that deal, at least in part, with SharePoint development, to the point where it’s sometimes challenging keeping up with them all. So, to make it easy for developers to make sure they’re getting all the latest technical information around developing SharePoint solutions, we’ve decided to combine those blogs into the one you’re now reading: the SharePoint Development Team Blog. Think of it as your one-stop shop for developer-centric SharePoint information, straight from the product teams and user assistance folk responsible for SharePoint Foundation, Server, SharePoint Online, and the SharePoint development tools in Visual Studio.

Here’s what you can expect from this blog going forward:

·       Detailed technical information on SharePoint development, such as walkthroughs and code samples, from the people who designed those product features and tools

·       Early, first-look versions of content being prepared for publication to MSDN

·       Cross-posts and pointers to SharePoint-centric developer content on other specialized blogs, such as Erika Ehrli’s, Eric White’s, or SharePoint in Pictures

·       Announcements of interest to SharePoint developers, such as content updates, service releases, or developer events.

So we’re hoping you’ll subscribe, and pass the following easy-to-remember URL on to your SharePoint developer friends and colleagues:

And if there are particulars things you’d like to see covered or discussed, by all means leave us a comment.

Welcome aboard.
