Book Description

June 8 2010 Wrox Beginning Guides
Discover how to take advantage of the many new features in SharePoint 2010

SharePoint 2010 is a significant leap forward from the 2007 release, and 'you will find that there are a ton of features built into the platform for you to leverage in your solution development. Because SharePoint is a broad platform that covers a lot, this book also covers quite a bit of ground. As a Wrox Beginning book, the goal of Beginning SharePoint 2010 Development is to get you started with many of the fundamentals so that you can continue on to advanced programming beyond this book.

The book's goal is to quickly take you from the basics of SharePoint, to installing and configuring a development environment, and then into how you can develop for SharePoint. The book is heavy on coding exercises, but tries to stick to a common set of .NET patterns to ensure you walk away with understanding the different ways in which you can code for SharePoint. Moving from beginning to advanced means that you can expect the walkthroughs and chapters to become increasingly more complex within each chapter and throughout the book. The walkthroughs have been created to be concise and to guide you through all of the steps you must accomplish to complete a coding task.

Beginning SharePoint 2010 Development is aimed at the developer who is new to SharePoint. The book assumes you have some programming experience and a passion to learn how to develop for SharePoint. But this book does not assume that you've programmed against SharePoint before. With regard to your general development background, the two assumptions in this book are that you have some familiarity with Web development, and you have an understanding of .NET programming. With regard to Web development, this book assumes that you understand HTML, and may have an understanding of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), Extensible Markup Language/Extensible Stylesheet Language (XML/XSL), and dynamic languages such as JavaScript. You may have a light understanding of ASP.NET and are looking to apply this knowledge to the SharePoint space. In any case, you have some understanding of the fundamentals of Web and .NET development, and are looking to apply those to the SharePoint space.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but you will need to do some investigative work... Dec 1 2011
By Craig E. Shea - Published on
Well, the book isn't as technical as I would've liked, but I guess the author did kind of say that up front in the introduction to this book. It's not really a programmer's book for SharePoint. HOWEVER, having said that, if you've never done SharePoint development before (ever), then this would be a pretty good place to start. If you're an experienced developer with a background in ASP.Net and/or Silverlight, then you will be able to skip a good amount of stuff and just focus on what's different/new when developing in SharePoint.

Why 4 stars and not 5? Well, because sometimes the instructional exercises are not clear about when/where certain steps are to be performed. As a book geared towards those who have never done SharePoint development before, this is a big deal. In fact, some of the steps are just plain wrong (it looks like the author may have been using a Beta or Release Candidate version of SharePoint 2010--based on some of the screenshots that appear in the book--but even so, there is no errata at Wrox's site. And, I didn't post one because it was too much of a pain to do so). In particular, Chapter 4, pp. 155-156, steps 7-15 are not correct. In fact, in the later steps, looking at the Site Settings page in SharePoint, there is no Look and Feel section anymore (at least, not as a major category header) and I could not find where the author was talking about to apply a custom master page that was created in this exercise as the site's master page.

Other than that, though, the book is overall very good about explaining the high-level concepts pertinent to SharePoint 2010 development--and I do mean high-level; this book is really geared to brand new SharePoint developers with possibly little previous development experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Technical Book I Have Ever Read June 22 2011
By marocano - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read several technical books on different technologies and this book is by far the worst. The author does not explain any of the concepts well enough to really understand them and I had to troubleshoot the majority of the exercises just to get them to work. I spent more time debugging his poorly written examples than actually reading the book. In chapter five there is an example of an Excel add-in that pulls in a SharePoint list. In the 3rd step of the exercise he states that we must build the project using .Net 3.5 framework but his code example shows we need to have a "using System.Xaml" directive which is only available in the .Net 4.0 framework. In that same chapter he briefly walks through how to build a custom WCF web service to interact with a SharePoint list but doesn't explain how to deploy it or get it to work. Reading this book has been one of the most frustrating experiences and I can never get the time I spent on it back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for Learning SharePoint 2010 Development June 10 2010
By Scot Hillier - Published on
I have been working in the SharePoint space exclusively since 2003 and have trained hundreds of people in SharePoint development. People who are new to SharePoint need structured learning with step-by-step examples in order to be successful. This book delivers exactly the kind of learning experience that developers need to get started with SharePoint or to transition from ASP.NET development. Steve Fox is a recognized expert in SharePoint development, an excellent communicator, and someone who understands what concepts are important in the massive platform that is SharePoint. If you are trying to break into SharePoint development, you should get this book, read it cover-to-cover and work every sample.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for those learning SharePoint 2010 June 7 2010
By Andrew Connell - Published on
This book does a great job getting non-SharePoint developers up to speed on what it takes to become a SharePoint developer. Readers are taken through step-by-step instructions on creating certain solutions and understand when one approach makes sense over other options when SharePoint presents multiple paths to compelte a task. I'd highly recommend this book to those who want to learn SharePoint 2010.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very irresponsible book June 13 2012
By Jae Choi - Published on
I hardly write any book reviews, but I felt obligated to write one this time. This book is full of errors, and it is impossible to follow the step-by-step guides of the book which make up the majority of the book. It seems like the author is using a different version of SharePoint. Don't waste your time and money.
