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…
