Intro to Visual Web Part Development

In SharePoint, Web Parts are an essential component of ASP.NET technologies used to present dynamic information to users and are arguably the most common customization created for SharePoint. In this presentation, we discuss and demonstrate how to build a web part using Visual Studio and its visual design tools. We’ll create a visual web part and use LINQ to SharePoint to retrieve data from a SharePoint list to be displayed in our new visual web part. We’ll then build and deploy our web part to a SharePoint site to see it in action!
