I have not been able to find any related subject here related to training patterns, Some of us who have gone through the C# basics and moderate courses as well as some other courses may be at loss like I am as to how a person would go through a project from start to finish. I was wondering if there is a book out there or a site what would hit the ground running with a project from concept to deployment, just pure coding and testing within SharePoint framework, this would be a HUGE help. Thanks.

Free Resources for SharePoint 2013

MS Virtual Academy (not just developer related)

HTML 5 and ASP.NET MVC are the first two exams on the MCSD: SharePoint Applications track.

Channel 9 - I am only going to list a few. Check out the SharePoint tag on their site.

Free eBooks from Microsoft on a range of topics including SharePoint administration and development.

Paid Training

PluralSight is the best online training site for SharePoint administration and development. They have 95 courses and are adding new ones pretty regularly. I have no affiliation, but I have been a subscriber for a few years now.

Microsoft offers courses on SharePoint development as well. You can go to an MS partner to take it. Just check out the "Optional Training" links.


I say this with some reservation, but I did find this book: SharePoint 2010 Development with Visual Studio 2010 by Eric Carter, Boris Scholl and Peter Jausovec helpful. My reservations are due to typos and some omissions from the text and code. I learned from this book by searching sites like this one when the code would not compile. I had to figure out how to fix what was not working from the book examples. In the end, I learned from it despite its shortcomings.

  • I haven't read that book, but it might be more realistic than you think. Real world SharePoint development is exactly like that. MSDN and the blogosphere are full of stuff that doesn't work, omits important details, or only addresses the most trivial of use cases. Then you are left having to fill in the missing or inaccurate bits yourself. Feb 10, 2014 at 15:17
  • Agreed. I reviewed the book on Amazon. It was definitely helpful.
