For quick reference, here’s how to programmatically create a SharePoint document library from template.
I have often needed to manage web parts programmatically in SharePoint using the server object model. While the requirements have varied depending on the specific situation, common things I have needed to do include programmatically adding, deleting and/or moving either custom webparts or OOTB web parts. I have also had to programmatically modify some OOTB web parts using the SharePoint server object model. I have an example of how to do this for the content editor web part in the last section of this article. This article provides quick code samples to manage web parts programmatically. Copy and paste and enjoy!

I have done quite a bit of programmatic manipulation on the SharePoint quick launch bar in C# so I decided to write this article that logs some of the tips and tricks I have used. Here you will find how to add and delete items, update links and text in parent and children nodes, add headings (items without links), add links that open in new window, and handle audience targeting for specific quick launch links.
SharePoint developers and IT pros are familiar with the “sign in as different user” menu option in SharePoint 2010. However, in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013, you will notice that this menu option is missing.
