News and announcements from imason.
So this is my first blog post...ever! Yeah, I'm pretty excited that
I have finally taken the plunge and decided to write about something, so here goes...
I have been working at imason for over 6 years now and in that time
my main technology focus has been around SharePoint. I was lucky
enough to attend the SharePoint 2010 conference in Las Vegas and have
to say I came away being thoroughly impressed at what I had seen over
the 4 days. If you had asked me prior to attending the conference what
I thought about SharePoint 2010 I would have replied "Oh great, another
version of SharePoint that I need to get up-to-speed on". Today,
however, I am pretty excited about the new features and improvements in
2010 and I think it will make for some great potential solutions once
it is released.
The SharePoint conference itself
was fantastic. The sheer size (around 7500 attendants) and number of
sessions (over 250) was very impressive and the sessions I did attend
were very informative and went smoothly considering it is a beta
product. I think the thing that stuck out to me the most was that for
2010 Microsoft focused on fixing
the issues that developers and business users routinely complained
about in MOSS 2007, providing a wealth of additional features that
really solidifies SharePoint as a great development platform, and
building in a lot of the social computing concepts we see in the public
domain. Microsoft did a great job of focusing on what was new and
improved which helped me understand the key differences between MOSS
2007 and SharePoint 2010. One of the things
that can be overwhelming with a product the size of SharePoint is
having the knowledge that something exists so that you can leverage it
when needed and the conference was great at providing those details. At some point, you will probably be asked the question, "Why should we move to
2010?" and my hope is that over the next few weeks and months my posts
will help provide some insight into helping you answer that question.
Congrats on your first blog post Peter! :)
