    Blog: Deploying Web Parts

    Once you start doing SharePoint development… specifically developing your own web parts, you’ll find deployment may not be a straightforward thing. Partick’s blog has a nice post about deployment of web parts. You may also have to deal wth Code Access Secrity (CAS) in .NET… there’s a good article on MSDN about this. » Deploying Web Parts - Possible Scenarios » Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services and Code Access Security

    Blog: Free (useful) SharePoint WebParts [navigation, what's new, alerts, breadcrumbs]

    Just got tipped off to a post on Jan Tielens’ blog that details four free web parts he built for SharePoint. There is an MSI that will install into the GAC, or there’s a ZIP that explains how to install it manually for a specific site (I prefer this… esp since I’m in more of a shared environment). The single assembly contains four web parts in Jan’s Leadit.SharePoint.Essentials: What’s New: Shows new items added to a SharePoint site.

    Blog: Custom Calendar Providers: Outlook2003 & WSS

    An article posted in May 2004 on MSDN was just highlighted on their front page and I just noticed it. As the teaser states: Stephen Toub walks you through customizing native Outlook 2003 integration with the Lists Web service from Windows SharePoint Services to build a Web application that serves up custom data. How will this help with WSS development? Not sure ~yet~… but definitely good code sample.

    Blog: Developing WebParts with UserControls

    Anyone doing Web Part development (currently for SharePoint) knows how much of a PITA it is to code the WP by hand… almost entirely from the code behind. Fons has come up with an incredible SmartPart to save a ton of time!!! Together with Jan Tielens , I have created a improved version of my User Control Container Web Part called the SmartPart for SharePoint. Jan has written an introduction and even created a video demonstrating it in action.

    Blog: GDN Workspace: Jazmine Framework

    I haven’t spent too much time investigating this as we’ve still been pretty busy about planning our SPS-CMS implementation, but I do plan to dig into it. I have seen it get lots of good press in numerous blogs. From GDN: An extension framework for building SharePoint Web Parts. The initial goals of this framework is to extend the base Web Part class with features needed in most common Web Parts.
