Professional SharePoint 2007 Development
You’ll start by building a strong foundation based on a thorough understanding of the technologies that come with the SharePoint platform, while also drilling into specific implementation areas. Next, you'll dive into seven key SharePoint development areas: the base collaboration platform, portal and composite application frameworks, enterprise search, ECM, business process automation and workflow, electronic forms, and business intelligence.
This book is for ASP.NET developers who want to add collaboration support to their existing applications, Windows/Office client developers who want to move their solutions from the desktop to the web, and experienced SharePoint version 2.0 developers who want to take advantage of the new capabilities available in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.
You will learn all about Windows SharePoint Services and MOSS 2007, including the following:
Ways to enhance collaboration using calendars, tasks, issues, and email alerts
Techniques for developing applications with integrated RSS, blogs and Wikis
How to build, configure, and manage portal solutions
Strategies for using enterprise search, XML, and XSLT
Methods for improving enterprise content management and business intelligence
