About This Book
This book focuses on Web Part development in SharePoint 2010 using Visual Studio 2010. It takes you on a journey from learning what a Web Part is and how you can use Web Parts, to building your own Web Parts in different and advanced ways. When you have read it, you should be a fairly skilled SharePoint Web Part developer, ready to take on challenging projects.
This book covers Web Part development from basic to advanced scenarios and is divided into three parts. Each chapter can stand on its own and you can use it as a reference when looking at a particular scenario.
The first part, consisting of chapters 1 and 2, is about Web Parts in general—to get you started. These two chapters explain the parts of a Web Part, how a Web Part fits into SharePoint, and how to use Web Parts in the SharePoint user interface, as well as in SharePoint Designer.
