ALM Best Practises for SharePoint Development

with Richard Angus
Abstract: Does this sound familiar?
  • “SharePoint is too hard.”
  • “It does not integrate into our ALM strategy.”
  • “The development requirements are too high”
The truth is, SharePoint development  *is* challenging, and it is because it is challenging that there are great rewards in integrating it into your ALM strategy. SharePoint adoption is growing, and with it the need to integrate the development process into your ALM strategy. During this session, we will explore the some of the strategies you can employ to bring the traditional developer ALM experience to your SharePoint projects, including
  • Choosing between using SharePoint Designer and Visual Studio
  • Using Work item tracking with your SharePoint development
  • Automating SharePoint builds on the Build Server
