What’s New for SharePoint 2010 Development in Visual Studio 2012 RC

I previously added some info references to the new and coming Visual Studio, that has some new really nice features for us SharePoint fans. This time I have installed the smokin hot new RC of Visual Studio 2012 and I’ll here give you a taste of whats to come, in pictures….

As you can see, the GUI is all Metro now, the logo and all parts of Visual Studio have been Metrofied. Not bad…

Not bad at all….

We have the following project types to select from in the RC. I suspect that there will be change here come release time.
(in 2012 we have 12 templates default in 2010 for SharePoint 2010)

New items list…

And the really nice remote publishing possibility.

    So do we still need Sharepoint on the dev box ? I am guessing the answer to that is yes !!

      Hi Ted.
      The answer is unfortunately Yes…
      But, this is a small step in the right direction, you can deploy to a remote environment…

    I’m using VS 2012 professional but the Sharepoint 2010 template is missing. Do I need an SDK for Sharepoint development?

      Hi Edison.
      My first guess is that you do not have SHarePoint 2010 installed on the dev machine, am I right?
      You need to have VS and SHarePoint both on the same machine. Sad, but thats how it is.
