Notes on Development with Microsoft Technologies

Dallas SharePoint TechFest Session Preview

Leave a comment

I will be presenting at this year’s SharePoint TechFest hosted in Dallas next week. The title of my session is “Using MS Visual Studio LightSwitch to build HTML5 Apps for SharePoint 2013” and I will be using the new LightSwitch HTML Client released as part of the Visual Studio 2012 Update 2 CTP 4.

The session will cover the following topics:

  • Working with data sources (SQL and SharePoint)
  • Designing Screens
  • Creation of User Controls
  • Enabling and Publishing to SharePoint Online

This is a lot of material to cover in an hour! The application that I will be demonstrating/designing will be a mobile client for the submission of work orders for a organization that has multiple remote locations. Here’s a screenshot of the working application that hopefully starts to get you excited about attending the session!

Since I am covering so much material, I will begin putting together a series of blog posts here detailing the building of the application after the conference.

Hope to see you there!

I have been a developer of web based solutions since early 2001 delivering solutions to a wide array of organizations using ASP, ASP.NET and SharePoint. I was introduced to SharePoint in 2003 when the consulting firm I worked for at the time introduced it into the workplace. I began working with MOSS 2007 as soon as Microsoft released the RTM version in November 2006. The platform was implemented at the organization I worked for in 2007 and went live in March of that year. I was tasked with the administration and ongoing development of the platform. I currently work as a SharePoint Architect with Artis Consulting, developing solutions for a wide variety of business problems. The goal of this blog is to share my discoveries developing solutions with SharePoint. I welcome your comments and feedback to any post -- and I welcome suggestions for future topics.
