Microsoft injected strong support for metadata, taxonomies and folksonomies in SharePoint 2010 with the addition of the Managed Metadata service application and Managed Metadata field type. While there is plenty of support for metadata across the platform out-of-the-box, Microsoft has included a very robust API in this latest release of SharePoint 2010 to create custom solutions. In this session, we’ll explore how we can create custom metadata based solutions for use in SharePoint 2010.
