Working on a project to build an HTML5 form within SharePoint that will read and write to a SQL database. Can't find much online about how to get this implemented. I am very well versed in HTML and SharePoint. Just need to know where to start.

  • Could you provide more info? I think you can start with an application page but no sure... – Juan Pablo Pussacq Laborde Apr 4 '16 at 19:12
  • Just looking for the basics: where to build it, what software I would need, to it works to get it connected to a database. Any articles you could point me to would be great. – wahle509 Apr 4 '16 at 19:23
  • In the answer below I left you a link to get started. SharePoint development has many variants. That book is very good. You'll get some key concepts. Since there are many possible ways to meet your requirement. – Juan Pablo Pussacq Laborde Apr 4 '16 at 19:41

I recommend you start with this book, "Inside Microsoft SharePoint 2010".

The first 4 chapters can be read online at MSDN this link: Book landing page: Inside Microsoft SharePoint 2010

There are versions of this book for 2007 and 2013 too.
