SharePoint Developer Program
A 10-week comprehensive program covering Microsoft SharePoint development. The program exposes students to SharePoint architecture and the use of SharePoint 2010 as a development platform for building customized solutions, focusing on SharePoint as a collaboration framework and content management system.
The program will begin with an overview of the various product editions and their features as well as a refresher of the .NET 2.0+ fundamentals that SharePoint is built upon. The program will then provide in-depth coverage of the core development constructs of SharePoint to enable the student to understand how the pieces fit together in common use cases. Finally, the program will expose the student to current development trends and how they will carry over into the next release of the product, SharePoint 2010.
