Engage in SharePoint 2010 Development




SharePoint 2010
provides a broad a unique set of integrated capabilities, within a unified
infrastructure to allow organizations share data and information on different
types of sites including intranets, extranets and internet facing sites scaling
up to millions of users .  Because of the
dynamic nature those solutions, SharePoint 2010 provides a platform that allows
developers to customize, extend and build rich solutions on top its
capabilities to address the different needs.

 

 How do I start SharePoint development?  How is it different from other development
platforms? ASP.Net, Client applications and Database applications?

 

Eric White discusses these points
his blog post, SharePoint
Developer Building Blocks: Technologies for Creating SharePoint Applications
.
He also addresses other important points such as the different types of
SharePoint applications, building blocks, resources, development tools and
SharePoint application lifecycle management.

 

 Now, as a developer I know what I can do with
SharePoint, my sleeves are up and I want to get my warm up my hands.  You can download the 2010
Information Worker Demonstration and Evaluation Virtual Machine
or Download
SharePoint
Easy Setup for Developers Kit
.  This
is a new set of pre-packaged tools that help developers easily get started with
SharePoint 2010 development by automating the provisioning of a developer
workstation using Windows 7, SharePoint & associated tools.

 

Once you got your
hands on the environment, check out these videos, Get Started
Developing on SharePoint 2010
, and get your hands on the SDK, and dive into
the SharePoint
Developer Center

 

Happy SharePointing…
