Last night, Kyle Kelin and I had the opportunity to debate SharePoint provisioning methodologies at the Tulsa SharePoint Interest Group. We each had to deploy a custom site with site columns, a content type, a list, and pages. Kyle chose the API approach and I went with the CAML approach. We ended up having a good interactive discussion with the group on the pros and cons of going with either approach. I also took a minute to show how @jthake’s SPSource can generate CAML for you and the response was great. As promised here is the code samples from the demo last night. Thanks for coming.
