I will be presenting on these topics:
In this session you'll get to know the new WSS features framework. Features are a new innovation added for developers in this latest version of WSS. Features allow you to define, package and deploy discreet units of functionality such as custom commands, page templates, lists, content types, event handlers and work flows. You'll see how to build a feature using XML and Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML). You'll learn how to package, deploy and activate a feature that will add custom commands to WSS sites and the lists within them. You’ll also learn how to define the schemas for lists, document libraries and content types. Finally, you'll see how to create site definitions containing feature references, and how to deploy features and site definitions using the new WSS Solution packaging mechanism.
Learn how to get ASP.NET 2.0 Web Parts up and running on a Windows SharePoint Services 3 site. You'll get a quick web part primer, and then learn how to create persistent Web Part properties and control property value serialization through ASP.NET type converters. You'll see advanced Web Part techniques such as data-binding controls to WSS lists and implementing Web Part connections. You’ll get acquainted with the SharePoint Control Library including SPGridView, SPTreeView, and other field controls that will enable you to create web parts consistent with SharePoint’s look and feel. You’ll also get a look at creating forms in Windows SharePoint Services 3, including how to leverage ASP.NET control templates.
