As the popularity of using SharePoint 2007 as a development platform continued to grow, the need for a mature application lifecycle methodology and associated toolsets grew as well. Developers and managers struggled to try to apply traditional ALM techniques and tools to the management and maintenance of SharePoint solution development. SharePoint 2010 marks a new era in which SharePoint development becomes a 1st class citizen, bringing with it a robust infrastructure to meet the needs of today’s development shops. This is great news for developers who want to be productive.
In this session, we’ll explore the differences between developing, deploying and maintaining SharePoint solutions in 2007 versus 2010. We’ll also take a look at the enhancements that have been added to Microsoft’s 2010 suite of products to achieve this, and how to best take advantage of the new feature sets.
