In my last post I described how to create a list event receiver. However it assumed some pre-existing knowledge of to to build and wrap wsp solutions together.

I chose the most obvious way, which was using list event receivers.

I've recently gotten around to installing SharePoint 2010 in a .vhd on my computer, and thus I'm finally able to play around with it.
