New Site aggregates SharePoint Developer Topics…

Microsoft has a new site that helps you get started using SharePoint in your development efforts. The site aggregates virtual labs, webcasts, white papers, tutorials and other related content. Instead of searching everywhere for good code to steal, you can go to this site and find what you need to get started with SharePoint development


The site covers the foundational topics of SharePoint development such as:

  • building Web Parts
  • working with SharePoint Data Lists
  • creating custom Workflows
  • creating Event Handlers
  • Designing custom Themes (or Brands)
  • using SharePoint Web Services
  • creating custom Content types
  • and more (i.e. Silverlight, page navigation, user management, etc)

The site reminds me of the Interactive Developer Map (IDM) available at the Office Developer Portal. The IDM highlights what you can do with WPF while also providing a tool that aggregates content related to Office development (i.e. VSTO, SharePoint, & more).
