1. How to Create SharePoint Development environment With the increasing popularity and a rapid rate of adoption of Microsoft SharePoint in the software industry as well as in the other industries, there has been a significant increase in the number of SharePoint development projects over the past few years that target SharePoint environments.As more and more companies and organizations begin to use SharePoint applications, there is an influx of professional developers who are migrating to Microsoft SharePoint from the other development platforms. To create a SharePoint development environment, a guidance documentation is designed which contains detailed examples, and a reusable class library. Solution developers and architects follow the guidance document for making the right decisions and continue with the right practices when designing and developing SharePoint applications. This guidance document contains key areas which are important to understand for a SharePoint developer or architect while developing SharePoint applications. Guidance Documentation
2. Designing and developing rich, robust SharePoint applications can be challenging sometimes. The guidance documentation which helps in developing SharePoint applications is divided into four core sections: Application Foundations for SharePoint 2010- This section describes the approaches to meet the challenges of testability, flexibility, configuration, logging and exception handling, and maintainability. Execution Models in SharePoint 2010- provides technical insights into the mechanics of the full-trust execution environment, the sandbox execution environment, and various hybrid approaches to executing code in SharePoint applications. Data Models in SharePoint 2010- explains external data functionality, key design decision points that can help the developers to choose between standard SharePoint lists and external lists. Client Application Models in SharePoint 2010- This section provides guidance on how to use the new client-side functionality with Silverlight and Ajax to access data and build richer client experiences. The key observation in SharePoint project management is that the developers do not have to create SharePoint applications as Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 already provides the applications that developers target in their SharePoint development efforts. Instead, they extend applications and websites that are created by the underlying platform. SharePoint Development Platform helps to Create Specialized Services The SharePoint development platform also provides several other developer opportunities to create specialized components and services, which are as follows: Timer jobs Custom Windows PowerShell snap-ins Custom navigation providers Custom claim providers .NET assembly connectors 3. Sandboxed solution validators Trusted proxies for sandboxed solutions Excel Services user-defined functions Custom web services Service applicationsConclusion SharePoint platform has been associated with intranet, content management and document management but recent versions have significantly broader capabilities. It is the dominant software for creating organizational intranets with a recent survey indicating that around 50% of all intranets are developed using SharePoint. SharePoint is gaining recognition as a full-fledged application server with many features and enhancements that specifically allow non-developers to create sophisticated intranet sites. However, with the 2010 release, Microsofts SharePoint increasingly becomes a compelling development platform.
