70-480 Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 – Preparation links

Developer Life

In this post I will reference official resource for learning and preparing for exam. Also this is study material for me as well. I have spent such a great time to compare other’s preparation links and choose the right one which according to me fulfil the best expectation of new knowledge.

A few words about my knowledge of HTML5/CSS3, I’m not front-end developer I have been trying to prevent to be person who is responsible for design or style of web pages. But time has changed and now I change my mind and force myself to learn it more. Clearly I have a lot of experience with them anyway, I have developed SharePoint applications for four years, last thing which mostly support my decision is SharePoint 2013, as you can see in my latest posts on this topic. One official huge thank you I should to say guys who created video

Helping You Study for Exam 70-480: HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript


This blog has moved, please check it out here

Having recently passed the MS70-480 exam on HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript, I wanted to put together a post to help other people who are studying for this exam. This is mostly a resource document but hopefully gives you a direction in which to get started studying. I should also link the resource I used when studying. I purposefully did not look at his documents while writing this because I wanted to complement, not copy, his work. So without further ado:

Implement and manipulate document structures and objects

Create the document structure

Make sure you are familiar with HTML5 semantic markup. These types of questions could ask you to translate a snippet of traditional HTML markup into markup using HTML semantic tags. Another approach would be a question which asks which semantic tag would be best suited for a given element.

SharePoint – Add Google Maps to your pages


Hello everyone. Some days ago I discovered that you can use Google Maps to visualize contact or address information on a map. Since I thought that this is pretty cool I wanted to share this information with you.

The first thing you need to do is to create a Document Library to store the Javascript file which will add Google Maps to your page. I called my Document Library “Script”. You can download the Google Maps Javascript file from here.

Before I uploaded the script I changed the following variables:

I set those variables to false since I wanted to use address information instead of coordinates and I wanted the map to open up by default without having to enable it manually.

Now create a Contacts List. It has already all fields we need to test our Google Maps Script. I called my Contacts List “Addresses”.


Next step:…

Ways to load jQuery in SharePoint (2010/2013)

Software / Wetware

There are many different approachs to using jQuery with SharePoint. Here is a summary of several different methods I have used, including how to get it to play nicely with NuGet.

1. Decide where to put jQuery files

i. In a site collection Document Library

Putting the scripts in Style Library is the main choice here, as it is available across all templates (whereas libraries such as Site Assets are only in team sites). The feature needs to be activated to make the scripts available.

  1. In your Visual Studio SharePoint project, right click the project and select Add > New Item…
  2. Select Module, and use the name ‘Scripts’.
  3. Configure an appropriate Site Collection (SPSite) level feature to reference the module; this can be a new feature, or added to an existing one.
  4. Rename Elements.xml to Scripts.xml (I like to give each Elements file a different name, so I can…
