Michael Van Cleave Traveling the technical world, learning the language

It has been a long time since my last post, but I have good reason. I have been terribly busy trying to complete a really cool project for one of my clients. I will post more about it in a later entry, but to say the least it has been quite an adventure.

Anyway that is not the point to this blog. I thought I would put a little ditty together about a course that I am going to be teaching at AmeriTeach here in Denver coming up in September. It is the 50064 Advanced SharePoint Developer course.

You might know from previous posts that I have been teaching the Ted Pattison WSS 3.0 Development course for AmeriTeach and I love it. It by far is some of the best content I have seen for SharePoint Development. I would recommend it for any ASP.NET person that would like to learn the nuances of SharePoint development without all of the headaches of trying to figure them out on your own. But With AmeriTeach expanding it SharePoint curriculum they decided to run the Advanced Development course created by Chris Givens at Architecting Connected Systems. The first surprise that I had was that after they decided to add it to the class roster Chris personally e-mailed AmeriTeach and offered to assist them with any questions or problems they had with the course. Needless to say I was instantly impressed due to the professionalism of getting in touch out of the blue to support the course he created.

Anyhow, I am starting to go through the course content this week in preparation for the forthcoming course and already I am devouring the content. The first couple of modules attack some realistic issues I have seen at many clients that I feel are very important for any SharePoint developer to know and understand. Chris's labs are easy to follow, detailed, and allow the student to see how simple it is to work with SharePoint.

In my courses that I teach I try to train the students in what I call "Thinking in SharePoint". Very similar to the idea of a developer trying to understand and apply object oriented programming principals; students need to understand the concepts of SharePoint to be able to properly use SharePoint as a development platform. I have no doubt that with this course it will further any students understanding of how to "Think in SharePoint" and develop better SharePoint applications.

So if you are interested in getting deeper in to SharePoint and developing in SharePoint to the fullest extent possible, please come checkout the courses I am presenting at AmeriTeach and see just how much fun SharePoint can be.

Happy coding…    

Michael

Hi Michael,
I have just downloaded this course from the MCT Download center, but the 50064A is replaced by 50064B, and when I decompresse the download, there are only virtual machine and vhd files, without any intructor and student notes. Where do you get the instructor notes for this course?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Thanh-Nu,
You have to get the other resources from the Courseware Library. If you log in to the MCT Membersite the link for it is below the download area on the right hand side. Just type on the Course Number and it will find the course and you can get the rest of the stuff from there.

HTH,

Michael

What certification does the 50064 course map to?

It really doesn't map to any certifications. It just covers topics that are important to understand about SharePoint development. Not that it doesn't help, but it doesn't directly map to a specific test.

HTH,

Fadi,
As an MCT you should have access to the courseware library. Go in to the library and search on the course number and you will have all of the instructor and student notes.

Good Luck,

Michael

There is a related course: 50146. Where can I get the course materials because it looks like a great course? Are there any other recommended courses to sharpen MOSS development skills?

Furthermore, familiarity with various other supported technologies that should get connected to SharePoint is beneficial.
