We all know there are great challenges in implementing existing \ customization features within the SharePoint platform, not only by the complexity , but also by how we conduct our features, content types and everything around it

Essentially, the most valuable asset that sustains us, is this undeniable satisfaction of creating something new with an almost perpetual sustainability and robustness, is our experience along the way, and essentially the sharing of knowledge in a creative and constructive way.

Great speach , hum? :)

"What do YOU use to develop in SharePoint?" Is the question I am asked most often. That’s the reason why I’m posting this.

You probably already know some of these tools, and are using them at this moment, however this list of tools is growing day by day and it's hard being aware of everything there is out there.

If there is any other tool you use, and it’s not listed here, send a comment to this post, and I will add it.

What About Third-Party Tools?

There are also good third-party tools that can help simplify and accelerate SharePoint development.
 
Quest Web Parts for SharePoint is used by many developers to build SharePoint applications that are easily supported, maintained and upgraded. Quest Web Parts help developers finish projects sooner and deliver almost any scope of customization, from interface enhancements that extend beyond native capabilities to composite applicaitons that are widely accepted by the user community.

That's very helpful.

It's very usefull, i think these tools are not only helping developers but also for all people who are working on SharePoint. Sometime we need to use these tools for our tasks, however if you have a details to show how to use these tools it's better. I actually used one more of these tools and realized that the most important thing is how to understand what they are tracking at result.

hi

What does this toolkit essentially mean to the common users of the platform. The way we have been involved in the sharing status phenomena gives us a clear cut understanding of the whole process and make it more applicable in the common platform.
