SharePoint Development Best Practices @ MEA ALM Community

If you are following me on Twitter, you have most probably seen my tweets yesterday about the official launch of MEA ALM Community (Middle East & Africa Application Lifecycle Management Community). Beside being a co-founder and community lead, I’ll be assuming the role of “SharePoint Practice Lead” and will be focusing on SharePoint as a development platform as well as the best practices for building SharePoint solutions using Microsoft Visual Studio ALM tools.

I’m shooting for December 2012 to create a series of videos in Arabic & English to explain how to use Visual Studio 2012 Testing tools for SharePoint.
