SharePoint and Web Content Management: Using SharePoint for Public Sites

I was fortunate last fall to attend a week long training class by the amazing Mr. Todd Baginski that showed off the AdventureWorks Travel Site sample.  This is a fantastic sample that shows various extensibility points needed to build SharePoint on the web sites.  Even more, the site is now updated with new training modules to help you walk through and see how much of Adventure-Works was built!

The new SharePoint On The Web modules cover the following topics:

  • Getting Started with SharePoint Development on the Web
  • Site Structure and Branding
  • Custom Field Types and Mode
  • FBA Authentication
  • Web Interoperability
  • SharePoint Search
  • Content Deployment
  • Minimal Publishing Site Definition
  • Enabling Social Networking
  • Silverlight and SharePoint

There is a lot of material on, including the videos from the training session.  There are also webcasts that we hosted this past winter focused on this material, presented by some of the top SharePoint MVPs.  I highly recommend checking out these webcasts, the MVPs did an amazing job on them.
