I’ve been asked to recommend some good texts for those learning SharePoint development. So here are the are books that I recommend for my SharePoint development students for both WSS 3.0, and MOSS 2007.
WSS 3.0 Development
Inside Microsoft® Windows® SharePoint® Services 3.0 (Pro Developer)
by Ted Pattison (Ted Pattison Group); Daniel Larson £24.84
A really good SharePoint developer textbook covering most of what you need to know about development using WSS 3.0. I recommend this to my students as it goes over most of the exam content.
MOSS 2007 Development
Inside Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007
by Patrick Tisseghem £20.79
Another great SharePoint developer book. This time for MOSS 2007. Covers a lot of core content for the exams too.
