This course is designed for the SharePoint Developer building new web sites for either the Internet or for Intranet use so they don’t look like standard SharePoint sites.


Microsoft SharePoint brings a whole new set of tools to the table for Web Content Management. This course will show how you can create and publish sites and pages while getting an understanding of how to apply Branding with Custom Style Sheets (CSS), Master pages and styles. You will then learn about creating publishing site definitions using Visual Studio solutions, how to add your branding to the definition and create and incorporate those assets to your site. You will then learn about content types and how to create and use page layouts with content types to deploy them to your site. One of the biggest updates to the tools is the SharePoint Designer. You will see how you can create many items with SharePoint Designer that once could only have been done with Visual Studio. As you get further along in the course you will see audience targeting, the pushing of content for updates and content variations. The course will finish up with navigation and search administration and the aggregation of information through queries, site collections and analysis reporting.
