The latest incarnation of SharePoint provides developers with many opportunities to extend SharePoint’s functionality. We will look at some very practical solutions involving workflow, web services, accessing the SharePoint SDK using the Object Model, and creating your own Custom Field Types. Solutions will be deployed as SharePoint features. The programming language is C#. Although examples will be demonstrated using the free Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0), knowledge obtained is equally transferable to MOSS 2007.

Medhat Elmasry is an instructor at BCIT. He specializes in web development and is involved in most of the ASP.NET courses. He moved from Java to C# since the latter’s inception.
