Must have tools for Developer

There are lot of free tools that are must have for SharePoint developer.

MSDN "Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) is the XML-based language that is used to build and customize Web sites based on SharePoint
CAML can be used to do the following:

  • Provide schema definition to the Web site provisioning system about how the site looks and acts.
  • Define views and forms for data and page rendering or execution.
  • Act as a rendering language that performs functions in the DLL like pulling a value from a particular field.
  • Provide batch functionality for posting multiple commands to the server using protocol. "
There are lot of free tools that are must have for SharePoint developer. One of most used SharePoint tool is U2U CAML builder which can be found here. Its still valid for SharePoint 2010. However, LINQ to SharePoint has become more popular. In fact LINQ internally translates into CAML in earlier post.
