In Transition

Folks

My apologies for the lack of recent posts

I am currently in the process of transitioning back to being a fully freelance contract trainer, studying for my Certificate IV TAE and a SharePoint exam. And I have been doing a few custom courses recently.

All of which doesn’t leave a lot of time for blog posts!

I have some posts planned including:

How to tell what version of SharePoint you have
Some video posts on Pivot Tables and SharePoint/Office 365
Regards

Get The Point

As I have commented before this blog is part wiki, part my brain on a stick, and I hope resources and information I find useful will be of interest to you.

Having booked in for my SharePoint exam in late Spetember, I went looking for some more resources to educate myself and found Microsoft’s Get the Point. Lots of good content on Governance and Planning, readable by a non Server Guru audience. Covers Office 365 as well and includes lots of video and diagrams.

I need to find some good information on planning for SharePoint 2007 and 2010 users so will be going through this site in detail!

Office 365 First Impressions

Office 365 First Impressions – Strengths

From the end user/skilled user perspective – much of whats good in SharePoint as made it into the online version. For me as a Trainer, this will facilitate demonstrating and explaining features – from a hopefully stable cloud environment – give recent issues I have had with training environments and SharePoint instability

First impressions after a long day exploring Office 365

  • Working from trial of basic level Office 365 plan
  • Looking as both trainer and likely small business user
  • I will comment further – these are my initial thoughts

Starting off with Office 365

My third little project is Office 365 (the other two are SharePoint 2010 exam and Trainer Certification)

So now I am beginning my trial of Office 365. Looking forward to this – if it lives up to expectations Office 365 will make some powerful technology available to small business and micro business who can’t afford in house server admin staff. We shall see!

So gathering together some resources to get familiar before I start:
