Workshop Series Description:
It is well established that Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) is an industry leading platform for Collaboration at the enterprise and team levels. What may not be as well known is that MOSS 2007 is also a powerful Application Platform for Microsoft .NET Developers, and in specific to this workshop series, for ASP.NET Developers. One of the newest features of MOSS 2007 is the ability to include custom forms in workflow’s with Microsoft InfoPath. This is a great new feature, but as indicated it requires MOSS 2007 Enterprise Edition or MOSS 2007 Forms Server.
In this freely downloadable workshop series, I demonstrate how to build a Document Workflow with Custom ASP.NET Forms, for the scenario’s where the version of MOSS installed is MOSS 2007 Standard or where ASP.NET Forms are desired over InfoPath Forms.
This series of workshops are filled with:

  • Step-by-Step examples
  • Screen shots of almost every step that I take (so that you’ll never get lost )
  • Code (downloadable and shown in the document),
  • Comments in the code (rare to find those anymore these days :))
  • details about which options I chose (why and the alternative options)
  • References to books, blogs, webs sites that I used to learn how to do this
