Developing and getting the most of sandboxed solutions (SPC336)

Mike Ammerlaan held a really great session yesterday about developing sandboxed solutions.

After some initial slides about possible techniques for developing sandboxed solutions, Mike showed a really great looking sandboxed solution for support tickets. And more awesome: it was Metro-styled!

His Support Ticket sample used a lot of techniques like:

  • JavaScript
  • JSON
  • SOAP

And he showed some nice hints and tips, like validation in the declarative XML for SharePoint lists. Very nice! (still looking for the TechNet info on this one…)

Also a very useable tip: if you want to have a JavaScript file available in all your pages: use a feature to add a custom action for a scriptlink!

<CustomAction
   ScriptSrc="~sitecollection/files/myscript.js"
   Location="ScriptLink">
 </CustomAction>

Good technical, useable information.  I enjoyed the session a lot.
