SUMMARY

This chapter provides a first look at SharePoint — both for those who have never seen it and for those who are experienced SharePoint developers.

In this chapter, SharePoint is broadly defined as a business productivity platform for the enterprise and the Internet. More specifically, for the developer (and in the context of this book), you should see SharePoint as a platform that supports developer productivity, has extensive platform services, and can support multiple deployment options. With SharePoint you can leverage an abundance of APIs, a rich server and client-side object model, and a powerful set of services to create some very compelling applications. A great set of tools is also available that will support your efforts at evolving or improving your SharePoint development skills.
