Overview
  • Introduction
  • SharePoint Tools
  • Common Scenarios
  • When not to use SharePoint
  • QA

http//www.sharepointmn.com
12
Introduction
  • Why Develop?
  • Add new functionality
  • Tailor existing features to specific needs
  • Use Line of Business Data in SharePoint
  • Create tighter integration between different
    systems
  • Who Can Develop?
  • Different levels of development
  • Administrators - Configuration
  • Super (Duper?) Power Users - Customization
  • Developers - Development

http//www.sharepointmn.com
13
Introduction
  • Why present on Development to a Non-Developer
    Audience?
  • Half the battle Knowing what is possible
  • Identify new uses for current technology
  • Identity bad uses for current technology
  • Many corporate decisions arent made by technical
    people
  • What Can I use to Develop?

http//www.sharepointmn.com
14
What Can I use to Develop?
  • Core Toolset
  • Office Suite
  • SharePoint Designer
  • InfoPath
  • Excel
  • Visual Studio

http//www.sharepointmn.com
15
Core Technologies
  • Core technologies common across SharePoint
    Customization/Development
  • Office Applications
  • Easiest way to alter SharePoint, Power User
    friendly
  • Limited in size of potential change, deployment
    concerns, potential brittleness
  • Examples InfoPath, Excel, SharePoint Designer
  • HTML/XML/XSLT/Javascript
  • Can create powerful customizations, without
    deploying code
  • Some specialized knowledge is usually required
  • Examples Master Pages, Content By Query, Search
    Results
  • .NET
  • Extremely powerful, offers most functionality
  • Also requires the most knowledge and
    infrastructure
  • Examples Web Parts, Workflows

Difficulty
http//www.sharepointmn.com
16
Getting Started With SharePoint Development
  • Understanding the environment
  • How to interact with SharePoint
  • Knowing SharePoints capabilities and limitations

http//www.sharepointmn.com
17
(Programatically) Reach out and Touch SharePoint
  • 3 Main Developer Access Methods (APIs)
  • SharePoint Object Model
  • SharePoint Web Services
  • Remote Procedure Calls (RPC)

http//www.sharepointmn.com
18
SharePoint Object Model
  • Nearly Complete Access
  • Can hit almost everything in SharePoint
  • Simple to Use
  • Much easier than other methods
  • Comfortable development paradigm
  • Widely Used
  • Support Newsgroups, books, presentations
  • Used internally to support various actions
  • Not Remoteable

http//www.sharepointmn.com
19
SharePoint Web Services
  • Provide a standardized way to access
  • Language Independant
  • Doesnt support all operations
  • Different versions have different abilities
  • Needs some XML parsing

http//www.sharepointmn.com
20
Remote Procedure Calls
  • Most capable of the Remote Options (for Document
    Scenarios)
  • Most dangerous as well
  • Powers some Office Suite SharePoint integrations
  • Difficult to use
  • Poorly documented

http//www.sharepointmn.com
21
SharePoint is an ASP.NET Application
  • A really big, slightly scary, extremely
    complicated ASP.NET application
  • Core skillset from traditional development is
    still valid
  • Can actually run an ASP.NET app under SharePoint

http//www.sharepointmn.com
22
SharePoint as a Development Platform
  • Now we know a little how, what about when?
  • How do I know my project is a good fit for
    SharePoint?

http//www.sharepointmn.com
23
Key SharePoint Development Platform Scenarios
http//www.sharepointmn.com
24
Personalization
  • General
  • SharePoint knows who you are, except on the
    internet
  • Creates an immediate context for the user
  • Security first, tailor the view later
  • Requirement for display based on individual or
    role
  • Profile can provide role information
  • MySites
  • Personal Location for users
  • Customize look and feel
  • Real value is in the users context
  • The Ubiquitous Web Part
  • Most common development activityin V2
  • Supports targeting to groups of users
  • Easily store preferences For all users, or a
    specific one
  • Mix and Match with Web Part Connections
  • No UI Editor for developers SmartPart eases the
    pain

http//www.sharepointmn.com
25

    Documents

    Code
