The purpose of this article is to demonstrate how to develop
a very simple Hello World Web Part. The target application for this Web Part is
Windows SharePoint services 3.0 (WSS), although it could of course be installed
on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS). The development of this assembly
will be conducted on a system that does not have WSS/MOSS installed. The
conclusion will demonstrate how to manually deploy and run this code, as
opposed to using Visual Studio's built in deploy process.
This article is
inspired by the work of Ted Pattison, whose video this
writing is based upon and loosely follows.
