Course Code: 10232

What's in this course?

In this course, students learn the skills and best practices that are required to help organizations design and develop effective SharePoint applications.

Course Outcomes

Develop strategies for caching, session state, as well as design for high performance sites by limiting page size and iteration.
Determine the most suitable presentation method, visual elements, programmatic objects and multilingual strategy which meets the design objectives.
Evaluate available data access and storage methods and determine the appropriate implementation for the application requirements.
Identify the pros and cons of various data capture options and specify the most effective method or combination of methods for capturing user input.
Evaluate the use and implementation of SharePoint artifacts and determine which artifacts best meet the needs of the application requirements.
Design processing systems to get work done in the solution.
Create an effective strategy for implementation and deployment of custom solutions in both development and production environments.
Create a development strategy to allow multiple developers and administrators to work together.
Devise a strategy for developing and deploying upgrades over time as the solution evolves.
Develop an information architecture strategy that will support flexibility and growth and a navigation strategy that fits on top of this information architecture.
Plan a comprehensive branding strategy and determine the necessary application elements required to support that strategy.
Design and implement a security approach which supports both code access and end-user functionality.
Design an effective strategy for optimizing page render times and data access methods within SharePoint 2010.
Determine the appropriate use of unit and integration tests within SharePoint and design an effective strategy for ensuring maximum code reliability.

Course Modules

This module helps you to review the essential information regarding ASP.NET including how to improve performance for high-scale sites like SharePoint. This module covers concepts around ViewState, caching, and session state and provides an opportunity to learn to make appropriate choices.

This module explains defining what storage will look like. This module discusses the information about data design critical to the performance and accessibility of the solution.

This module discusses items that will need to be implemented in SharePoint to tie the user interface and the data structure together. The module covers information about artifacts to begin the transformation of the abstract design into a specific set of deliverables that need to be created through SharePoint.

This module addresses the first order problem of factoring the solution into features and packages so that it can be upgraded. This module covers the baseline skills of determining the number, scope, and dependency of features and determining the right number of packages.

This module delves into the challenges of versioning in a SharePoint environment. The module also addresses deployment issues because most deployment issues are related to the versioning process.

This module covers branding options, including what tools can be used to customize the appearance. The module moves us to including the users and power users of the ultimate solution.

This module discusses page and data access performance and how to plan for a high performance site.

This module provides the key criteria and structure necessary to make appropriate decisions about what kind of user interface component to use based on the needs of the solution.

This module discusses strategies on how to get the data into the system. This module covers the techniques for capturing data – including office integration and integrating to other systems with BCS.

This module covers the details of options for developing solutions. The module provides decision criteria for the determination of sandbox versus full trust (or a hybrid of the two) deployments.

This module provides the students a platform to expand the scope of the solution and focus on issues related to dozens of projects on a server, each with its own approach to configuration and logging.

This module helps to draw the distinction between information architecture and branding topics. The module helps to separate taxonomy (organization) from navigation (user interface).

This module describes how to design security for performance and provide a holistic view so to evaluate security implications and tradeoffs.

This module discusses what we do at the end of the development process, testing. The module also covers functional testing and scale/performance testing.
