Event Receivers are a fundamental part of SharePoint. Knowing how to use them and what features are available for which version of SharePoint is crucial for all SharePoint developers. Drawing on my extensive experience over the past six years, this session will give every developer a solid foundation for using Event Receivers in SharePoint 2007, 2010, and 2013 built on best practices and real world usage.
This session will provide an overview of Event Receivers in SharePoint with specific focus on List Item Event Receivers. You will learn from real world examples, tips, tricks, and hear about how event receivers have been utilized at different clients. I then discuss pros and cons of using Event Receivers as well as compare them to SharePoint Workflows. Secondly I will key on the differences between the versions of SharePoint related to Event Receiver functionality. Finally I will show a demo of how to quickly get up and running using Visual Studio and some common use examples.
