Advanced Creation of Web Parts for SharePoint Portal Server
Presented by Matthew Cosier

This session will explore how to use Microsoft Visual Studio .NET to create both client and server side Web Parts for SharePoint Portal Server.

Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server provides a standard framework for the rendering of content, and interaction through the portal – Web Parts.  This model is being expanded through to other Microsoft Products, and into future versions of ASP.NET.

We’ll discuss in this session how advanced Web Parts can be built using Visual Studio .NET, that take advantage of SharePoint standard services, and use additional platform services to create complex information management solutions.

The session will cover the following areas:

  • Creating Web Parts using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
  • Accessing standard services from SharePoint Portal Server
  • Extending your Web Part to be fully integrated with SharePoint Portal Server
  • Taking advantage of the Single Sign On Service in Web Parts
