Project Description
This project will help you get started with customizing, branding, and deploying My Sites for SharePoint 2010. This is an updated and enhanced version of the CKS: MySiteCreate project that was originally created for SharePoint 2007 by Steve Peschka. 

Here's a summary of the functionality:

  • Basic branding for the My Site that can be used as an example for your own customizations.
  • Visual Studio 2010 Source Code for deploying branding to your My Sites including FeatureStaple element to automatically apply branding when personal sites are provisioned.
  • Updated version of the code from CKS:MySiteCreate project to control the deployment of webparts via a custom server control in the masterpage.  This has been enhanced to also deploy based on user profile values.

NOTE: This project is intended to be a starting point for deploying customizations to My Sites with SharePoint 2010.  Additional testing and enhancements would likely be needed to support enterprise and larger scale deployment scenarios.
