To SharePoint or Not to SharePoint…

To be fair, the discussion of whether or not to SharePoint has long since been concluded. SharePoint won. Why? Simple. It offers pretty much everything a Microsoft-based business needs to share files securely.

And it does tons more besides that, if you have the cash.

After packing 35 hours of training into 4.5 days last week taking Course 10741 (Configuring and Administering MS SharePoint 2010) with instructor¬†Richard Oertle, I’m still reeling from the experience.

It was one of those I-thought-I-had-a-handle-on-it-until-I-found-out-just-how-much-there-is-to-know situations.

Now I just need to get my hands on a copy of Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server and SharePoint 2010 Server for my VirtualBox test machine… (or maybe just shoot me now before Darth Gates has finished the assimilation process.)
