Presentation from 12/13/11 CTSPUG

A big thank you to the Connecticut SharePoint User Group (CTSPUG) for having me down last night to deliver my presentation (slides below) on Best Practices in SharePoint Development. While the group itself has been around for 10 years (CT.Net), this was the second official SharePoint UG meeting, and I was happy to be a part of it! A big crowd too! The room was packed, and thankfully, I heard no snoring 🙂

As I mentioned at the beginning of the presentation, there are a lot of slides so you can have them for review afterwards, as we covered at lot of information. Below is a copy of the presentation on slideshare.

If you were at the session, or even wanted to attend but could not make it, please feel free to contact me in the comments below with any questions on the material.


New Version of SPDisposeCheck Released Today (12/13/10)!

Saw a tweet from J.D. Wade (@JDWade) today, that Roger Lamb released a new version today of SPDisposeCheck. If you’ve been in my Best Practices for SharePoint Development session I do with Mark Rackley, or, if you are a SharePoint developer, you should know what this is.

But, in case you do not know what it is, here is a comment straight from the linked post below:

SPDisposeCheck is a tool to helps developers and administrators check custom SharePoint solutions that use the SharePoint Object Model in identifying correctly disposing of SharePoint objects to help you follow published best practice. This tool may not show all memory leaks in your code and may produce false positives which need further review by subject matter experts.

The biggest update here is that it now comes complete with an add-in to the Visual Studio 2008/2010 IDE. Sure, you can do this yourself, but, I like it when it is done for me. Call me lazy, I call myself “efficient” 🙂
