July 2010 TRISPUG Meeting Announcement

Posted by Steve Pietrek on July 2, 2010

Now that I am officially down in Raleigh – more on that later – I wanted to send out a quick note that there will be a TRISPUG meeting on July 6th from 6:00 – 8:00.

Josh Carlisle will be presenting on the new and improved developer experience with SharePoint 2010. From the improved debugging and SharePoint project experience with Visual Studio 2010 to some of the new tools, techniques, and APIs available you will get introduced to a high level overview on the major enhancements, along with demos and code samples, and when available some new best practices. Some of the key topics we’ll be covering are the new Visual Studio SharePoint Project Types, Sandboxed Solutions, Feature Framework Enhancements, Client Object Model, Linq to SharePoint, and Business Connectivity Services just to name a few. All the features that will be covered are available in SharePoint Foundation (formerly WSS) so this will apply whether your running SharePoint Foundation or SharePoint Server.

The meeting will be at Tek Systems – Raleigh Office.

Hope to see everyone there.
