Develop a Community Solution with VSTO 3.0, Office Open XML and WSS 3.0
Mario Szpuszta builds a restaurant rating web solution from scratch.
Restaurant owners can submit their restaurant details in the form of a Word 2007 document containing Content Controls mapped to a custom XML part. A custom Web Service returns the submitted restaurants from the SharePoint List and is used in a custom VSTO 3.0 Task Pane to generate invites from inside Word 2007.
This session is a good example of the ease of creating a rich solution for bringing back-end data to the Office clients.
Best Practices for Developing, Deploying and Maintaining SharePoint Solutions (Q&A)
A decent session with real life problems and questions from the SharePoint community here at TechEd Developers 2007. We discussed SharePoint as a development platform -which it definitely is, although at present the developer experience is rather painful, how to do development (VPC versus Native), what to expect from SharePoint as a developer, etc.
Both Ted Pattison as -->Patrick Tisseghem --> provided the best possible feedback and solutions to the endless stream of questions from the audience.
FYI, my personal preference is doing VPC development because this way I can quickly switch between various projects and SharePoint versions while keeping all client solutions separated.
