        Welcome to the SharePoint Products and Technologies 2010 Technical Preview Developer Documentation download.

        This download contains the following pieces of developer documentation:
        • White paper: Customizing the Ribbon in Windows SharePoint Services “14”: The Ribbon is now included in the user interface for Windows SharePoint Services “14” and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010. This white paper describes how developers extend it using a combination of XML and ECMAScript (JavaScript, JScript). Customizations to the Ribbon in the included example are created using the Feature infrastructure, and can be deployed using a solution package (.wsp file). This white paper is provided in both PDF and XPS format.
        • SDK: SharePoint Products and Technologies 2010 Managed Reference SDK (Technical Preview): This compiled help (.chm) file contains reference topics focusing on types and members that are called by other Microsoft applications. This reference does not reflect the entirety of the SharePoint Products and Technologies 2010 managed object model.

          The full SharePoint Products and Technologies 2010 SDK will accompany the public release of SharePoint 2010.
        While every effort has been made to ensure the technical accuracy of the above material, it is preliminary documentation, and as such, subject to change.
