SharePoint 2010 Development - Professional All the Way
This latest WROX "Programmer to Programmer" series book is an excellent resource for the experienced programmer working with SharePoint 2010. I'd suggest reading the first four chapters, then referring to any chapters beyond that which interest you. Written by a team of six authors, Tom Rizzo, Reza Alirezaei, Paul J. Swider, Scot Hillier, Jeff Fried, and Kenneth Shaefer, it is thoroughly professional, with no hand-holding.
As the technologies in Microsoft SharePoint are so numerous, the first three chapters go paragraph by paragraph, simply listing what the software can do, and what is new in the 2010 version. Since even experienced developers may not have occasion to delve into all these areas, it is worth describing the capabilities.
One area that interested me is Chapter 3, "IT Pro Enhancements for the Developer", in which it addressed "List Throttling" and other techniques for improving performance. This brings to mind the maxim I've heard that "if you can't afford at least a full-time administrator and a full-time programmer, SharePoint is probably not the platform for you."
Chapter 4, "SharePoint Platform" depicts an out-of-control tree diagram, where the leaves of the tree are full-blown technologies implemented by SharePoint, and the roots of the tree are the Execution Environment. These technologies are further discussed throughout the book.
Chapters 5 through 14 go in-depth in each topical area. In addition to sober topics like Records Management, there are currently hot topics like Social Networking and Business Intelligence. To get the full benefit, of course, these should be read, but they are designed to work well simply as reference material.
Thumbs up on this excellent work.
