SharePoint 2010: Part 1: Preparing for 70-573 TS Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Application Development

See “Part 0” here.


A note (and a guess on my part): This is exam is not an “upgrade from 2007 exam”, so I am assuming when there is a reference to objects such as “SPWeb” that what we will need to primarily know the “core” properties, methods and how to’s, and not just what is new or deprecated. With that in mind, and the fact 2010 is VERY backward compatible, I have a number of references to 2007 resources. (2007 books are now really cheap on Amazon and a used book stores!)


Skills Being Measured:
Working with the SharePoint User Interface (19%)

Manage SPSite and SPWeb programmatically by using Visual Studio 2010

  • This objective may include but is not limited to: creating sub webs, referencing SPFiles, manipulating property bag, when to call Update, referencing SPContext, SPSite, SPWeb,  SPSite.OpenWeb, SPWeb.Webs, feature activiation and deactivation
    This objective does not include: trivial cases such as setting title and other loose properties of the objects

This SPSite, SPWeb and related core objects have not changed too much (if at all) from 2007, so a number of the links below are for 2007, but apply to 2010.


Here’s a couple of the interesting changes:

As the core has not changed too much, many of the existing book and web resources will still apply:
