Learn SharePoint Development with USP Journal


Oslo, Norway - A new SharePoint journal is promising both aspiring and seasoned developers a new approach to SharePoint training. The Understanding SharePoint Journal teaches SharePoint development by solving real problems posted by real people, showing step-by-step approaches and offering tips and field-tested experience in developing SharePoint solutions. This may just be what busy technology professionals looking to update their skills need.

With more than 100 million licensed SharePoint seats worldwide and, according to Gartner, 80% of businesses expected to be using SharePoint by 2010, the market for SharePoint development is massive. “With a declining economy, developers are looking to secure their careers and income by expanding their areas of expertise”, editor Bjørn Furuknap said during the launch this week. “Learning new techniques or updating existing knowledge is the easiest way to gain an advantage in a difficult job market.”

The first issue of Understanding SharePoint Journal, available now on, revolves around an age-old question of how to find the number of users currently accessing a web site. Using the open-source CodePlex solution SPCurrentUsers developed specifically for this issue, the reader is guided through how the solution is created while learning various aspects of SharePoint development.

Some of the topics taught in the first issue include how to use DelegateControls to insert custom components into a page, using CustomActions to enhance the user experience, expanding the User Information List to store custom data, and using SharePoint event receivers to deploy features in a controlled manner.
