I have written a number of posts on Sharepoint 2007 webparts, as well as ASP.NET 2.0 Webparts (well they are sort of interchangeable anyway).
Writing custom webparts
Writing Custom editors
Webpart communication Sharepoint specific scenarios
.. and many others.
I have also written series of posts, in a 5 minute digestable fashion - in a small bite sized one blog post a day about LINQ/DLINQ. Those were fairly well received considering the hits/links I have received on 'em.
Well, here is announcing an upcoming series.
I am going to go step by step, one blogpost a day, and talk about advanced scenarios under ASP.NET 2.0 Webparts. Of course I will link to earlier posts as well for background basic information as need be.
What I will do is, I will chalk up a real world application, and demonstrate how to create that in first ASP.NET 2.0, using the ASP.NET 2.0 Webpart framework. We will discuss all concepts there, before moving on to sharepoint.
When in Sharepoint, we will look at deployment headaches, and compatibility between ASP.NET 2.0 Webpart framework, and where you may loose such compatibility.
Overall in this series, we will cover
- Writing custom editors for Sharepoint 2007
- The webpart communication framework in both sharepoint & asp.net 2.0.
- Various deployment options and methods in Sharepoint 2007.
- Security considerations in Sharepoint 2007.
- and many more such relevant concepts.
.. when do we start? Dammit, I'd love to start right now, but it's frickin' 5 AM, and I need to go sleep. So this series starts tommorow night.
