Windows SharePoint Server 2003 Training

SharePoint 1, 2, 3! is a new concept in community-based training being offered to the development community by the development community. SharePoint 1, 2, 3! offers six sessions designed to train developers to install, use, and develop custom software for Microsoft's Windows SharePoint Services. SharePoint 1, 2, 3! is designed to be a start to finish training session that has a 100 level course, a 200 level course, and a 300 level course to get into all aspects of SharePoint. With two types of meetings; a lecture style seminar followed by a hands on lab session, you will be able to try the technology yourself. Starting with the first session (level 100), we will provide a gentle introduction to SharePoint - what it is and how to use it effectively. The second session (level 200) will be aimed squarely at developers and will focus on customizing SharePoint sites, developing and using web parts, and deploying SharePoint sites. The final session (level 300) will dive deep into advanced topics such as connected web parts and the SharePoint Object Model.

At course completion students will be able to:

  • Know the difference between SharePoint Services and SharePoint Portal Server
  • Understand the level of integration between Office 2003 and SharePoint
  • Explain what Web Parts for Microsoft SharePoint Products are and how they work
  • Create a SharePoint site and customize the contents

The first session is aimed at a 100 level audience and is designed for both developers, administrators, and management interested in learning more about this great set of tools. The second and third sessions are aimed at 200 and 300 level developers respectively.

The sessions build on each other, so if you're a developer interested in SharePoint and have never seen it before, be sure to attend all of the sessions!
