Sharepoint 2010 WebPart Tutorial  -
Webparts as you know are Reusable components that can be deployed and added to many different sharepoint site pages. In this post we will talk about custom and Out-of-box webparts in SharePoint 2010.

In sharePoint 2010 we can create two kind of custom WebParts :

1. Visual WebPart - While creating a Visual webpart you will have a design interface available with you, where you can simply drag and drop checkboxes, labels or your own custom controls to make up the webpart UI. To add the business logic, a code behind file is also attached to the webpart.

Technically, a Visual webpart in SharePoint 2010 is a ascx User Control that is hosted inside a standard webpart. If you notice that the webpart class does not now inherit form a Microsoft.SharePoint.webpartpages.webparts or System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts instead it inherits from UserControl namespace.

2. Standard AsP.NET WbeParts - Here you will have to build uo your user interface and logic in a class file. Unlike, visual webpart standad webparts in SharePoint 2010 does not gives you any drag and drop design surface for developing WebPart UI. This type of webpart Inherits from Standard ASP.Net webpart instead of UserControl or SharePoint.webpart.

WebPart Packaging -
Visual Studio 2010 package and deploy webparts when you press Clt + F5. It has a packaging and deployment processor which will create the needed solution package for your webpart and will deploy it in your sharepoint site. You can then add the webparts on any sharepoint site page from webpart gallery.

Sharepoint 2010 Workflow Tutorial -

1. SharePoint 2010 workflows are build upon the workflow engine provided .Net Framework 3.5.

2. List and Site workflows - In addition to the SharePoint lists we can now create workflows for SharePoint sites as well. These are called as "Site Workflows".

3. SharePoint Designer 2010 Changes - MS has provided a new graphical workflow designer for designing workflows. These workflows can be deployed in SharePoint Server directly from the designer.

4. Editing Out-of-Box workflows - Another Improvement in SharePoint Designer 2010 workflows is that it now allows you to edit the out-of-the-box workflows that come with SharePoint.

5. Re-usable Workflow - In addition to above, with Designer 2010 you can also create reusable declarative workflows. That means unlike SharePoint 2007 designer workflows, you don't have to bind a workflow to a specific list. You can resuse them by binding it to more than one list or multiple lists.

6. User profile in Workflow - User Profile data can now be bound to properties in workflow. This will make it possible to get information about the SharePoint user profile in the workflow itself.

7. Moving SharePoint Designer Workflows - The resuable designer workflows can now be moved to another SharePoint server or to Visual Studio 2010 with a workflow .wsp file. "Save as Template" command can be used to create the WSP file for the workflow.

8.Changes in List Events - SharePoint 2010 adds four new workflow Event Receivers for list based workflows. The four workflow event receivers available are Starting, Started, Postponed and Completed. These are similar to other SharePoint list\library event receivers and they execute code on the server in response to the event.

9. Workflow Templates - To make development easier, Visual Studio 2010 includes event receiver project types to make using the workflows and events fairly simple.
