Code Samples from our CAML vs API talk at Tulsa SharePoint Interest Group

Posted Tuesday, May 12, 2009 10:36 AM by CoreyRoth

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.
