I am a beginner when it comes to SharePoint so please bear with me, I apologize in advance for my inaccuracies.

Here is what I need to do... I need to build a form in C# .NET in VS 2012, deploy it to a SharePoint 2013 site, the users be able to create a new form, and the form entries appear in a list. I tried looking on line for a tutorial on how to go about doing this but I am lost in the sheer amount of information regarding SP.

I am able to build the form in VS, so I am not asking for code. Rather, I am looking for how to set it up so that I can easily deploy and work the form through SP. I have a farm already set up and the servers are in place. We have done this before for another project so I know that VS and SP are configured correctly.

Is there a sequence I need to follow (as in in build the list in SP first then use the fields in VS, or create a site collection in SP, build the list in VS, and just hook them up, etc...?). I created a new SP 2013 project in VS 2012, but do I create a new web part now?

I know this is a large question, but like I said I did do research but the amount of info regarding SP is overwhelming. I am just a lowly developer trying to build a form and connect it to SP.

Thanks in advance!
