A digest post addressing SharePoint 2010 questions
Does SharePoint index the content of ODT files?
For Enterprise and FAST search appears yes – see articles below: Continue reading “SharePoint Q & A”
Folks, This post is an omnibus post to document an assortment of questions on SharePoint 2010 that I have had recently.
SharePoint 2010 and Farms
This area is a bit out of my territory – but here is some light reading on getting started: Continue reading “SharePoint Q & A”
The SharePoint 2007 User Guide download and other downloads have been fixed (and checked/tested).
The fault was due to a clash with Jetpack.
I have a rule not to blog angry. It can give the wrong impression. I am for example preparing some really positive video tutorials covering useful things to do with SharePoint Online, Windows phone and OneNote 2010. Lots of good things to say which I will save for a later post.
Because I am grumpy now.
I recently updated my password for Office 365. Good practice – Yes. A Mistake – Yes Continue reading “Not Happy! Microsoft Windows Phone and Office 365”
Two free, good quality resources to explore
- Microsoft Virtual Academy – free, wide range of technical and semi technical courses
- SharePoint 2010 for Internet Sites Implementers’ Course – working through this myself – useful for more than the audience intended by the title
This post gives a couple of leads to answer a question that I have encountered on SharePoint and Captivate courses – Is there an LMS for SharePoint? I was aware there was a commercial solution, but not of options where the budget was more limited.
As I have been catching up on my LinkedIn Groups – an excellent resource which I have much neglected while working on exams, business building and my Trainer certification over the last few months – I followed some suggested links and found myself at CodePlex. I will do a separate post about CodePlex.
At Codeplex I found two potentially useful tools
- SharePoint Learning Kit
- SharePoint Web Parts for Moodle Continue reading “SharePoint and E-Learning Integration”
Just passed the 77-886 MOS SharePoint 2010 Exam. Given I have agreed to the non-disclosure clause about six times, I can’t discuss what is in the exam.
What I can say is I found it very useful to prepare for and do this exam. It’s not a server guru type exam – it is aimed at skilled end users, trainers and people who need a good broad knowledge of SharePoint (and need evidence of that knowledge) – eg if you are member of a SharePoint implementation team (or would like to be) or have a role in encouraging adoption in your workplace. The work you do in preparing for this exam will help you obtain that knowledge – it certainly help me fill in many gaps in my knowledge and realise the full scope of SharePoint 2010.
As a trainer doing more and more in this area – it will help establish some credibility.
- I have listed books and resources elsewhere in the blog. Study the topics in the outline provided by Microsoft.
- Read, listen and watch as much as you can
- I also found some good little videos on YouTube by Jessica Meats whose blog is here. The videos are short, well structured and don’t spend 2/3 of the time explaining the video makers other services. Good, clear and to the point. Well done Jess!
- Get as much hands on practice as you can, Explore and Practice!
- Try to prepare for this after a major client has collapsed, throwing your schedule and cash flow into chaos. It can be done, but I am sooo tired.
Thank you for your interest.
Now given I have signed the non disclosure agreement for the MOS SharePoint Exam 77-886 (5 times so far due to the exam freezing!), I can’t tell you what is in it. I don’t yet actually know whats in it!.
However, people have asked me about preparation resources for the exam- and I have just found the book below on Safari Books Online. You can also get it for the Kindle via Amazon – see ad below. Continue reading “MOS 2010 Study Guide for Microsoft® SharePoint®”
Thank you to all of those of you who have expressed support and interest my progress on the exam 77-886. On Friday, the testing simulation froze about four times in the first few questions – I am now trying again on next Friday. The testing centre people were very helpful and efficient.
So more news next week
