>I read quite a few computer books, I think actually I might be obsessed with SharePoint to be honest. Yesterday I went down for a client meeting in London and took the train down and came back via Manchester. Fortunately to keep the train journey interesting (sic) I took with me Ted Pattison and Daniel Larson’s book “Inside Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (Pro Developer)”.
I read the thing from cover to cover in a day… I have to say this has to be the best SharePoint book I have read so far, well done guys.
I have been learning SharePoint 2007 for a year now and as you will eventually see on this site have figured out a lot of things but these guys have cleared up so many points.
For example when managing users in an SPWeb object there are 3 different functions:-
SPWeb.Users will contain users who have been explicitly added to the SPWeb
SPWeb.SiteUsers contains all the users in the site collection, so any users who have been added to the Site Collection
SPWeb.AllUser will contain all the users who have access to the site including Site Collection users and also (and this is the cool bit) users who are in SharePoint Groups and AD Groups. I havent tested out the last bit but will be doing shortly. I let you know how we get on!
Anyway if you want to develop with SharePoint get Ted and Dan’s book.
