SharePoint for Developers
You can use Visual Studio 2010 and SharePoint Designer 2010 to build on the SharePoint platform. Developers get rich set of out-of-the box features such as Business Connectivity Services for read/write integration between external application data, the Web, and the Office 2010 client.
Visual Studio 2010 includes new tools for creating, packaging, and debugging SharePoint solutions. These include
- A new designer for building Web Parts.
- A new designer for Business Connectivity Services Entities (formerly named BDC Entities)
- Designers for creating SharePoint solutions, features, and more
- Integrates support with Visual Studio Team Foundation including source code control and team build.
- LINQ for Sharepoint offers developers strongly typed access to SharePoint lists. Use the LINQ syntax and list joins and projections.
- Developer Dashboard can be enabled on any SharePoint page for development and debugging.
