Quick Notes are 2-4 page tasks in a single scenario. Combined, they provide an end-to-end solution for a specific scenario. Individually, they are single-page tasks that you can print and use.

Building Web Parts is one of the most common tasks you will undertake as a developer. SharePoint 2010 and Visual Studio 2010 enable you to create Web Parts quickly and easily. You can use project templates and project item templates to help you get started building standard ASP.NET Web Parts. You can also build a new type of Web Part called a Visual Web Part.
