SharePoint 2010 – The Start!

It’s been a while I updated my blog posts!  Have been quite busy with SharePoint 2010 and the splendid new things it has to offer.  I realized I’ll take a crack at SharePoint 2010 starting with the several learning opportunities available publicly for SharePoint Developers.  I know it’s pretty late in time to let this out, but hopefully, this will be helpful for you and will be a ready reference for me.

Videos speak times better than words!  SharePoint 2010 Developer Training Course covers developing solutions on SharePoint 2010 platform using Visual Studio 2010 and SharePoint Designer 2010 spanning 14 units.  It starts by introducing SharePoint 2010 highlighting the changes it brings in from a developer perspective.  I’d start with the videos here if I have been developing solutions for MOSS 2007/WSS 3.0 and want to upgrade my skills to SharePoint 2010.

A few other learning resources that could span the interest of a wide audience are listed below:
