Lets Learn SharePoint

Image
What is SharePoint? SharePoint is a platform for collaboration, document sharing, meeting, record management, content management, business intelligence kit. SharePoint marketing tagline is “Business Collaboration Platform for Enterprise and Web”.
Let’s understand SharePoint by an example:
Suppose a project manager was assigned a new project in his organization. Let’s name this project manager as Mr. A
So Mr. A will send emails to HR and other projects Managers to know following things:
How many resources are free? How many resources are expert in designing, How many are in .Net technology etc.
After that Mr. A will gather his team and will held some meeting, then few email exchange, document sharing via email, telephonic conversations and many more.
Few weeks later Mr. A will have to expand time to search for a particular document, he needs to scribble his email folders, he needs to ask his team mates for a particular things.
Are these work going to give any result? Might be or might no…

Visual Studio has the feature to make a wsp package. That WSP file can be deployed either by central admin UI or PowerShell Command. Assembly Deployment  (DLL) There are 2 ways that a SharePoint Web Application can access assembly files. GAC/Full Trust : Assemblies are deployed into Global Assembly Cache (GAC). They are accessible from any SharePoint Web Application on the farm. Bin: Assemblies are deployed to bin folder of specific SharePoint web application.
