New to SharePoint? Get this book: The Microsoft SharePoint product includes browser-based collaboration and a document-management platform. It can be used to host web sites that access shared workspaces and documents, as well as specialized applications like wikis and blogs from a browser. SharePoint does not replace a full file server, but is more than sufficient for most small to medium organizations. The SharePoint interface is through a web interface, such as a task list or discussion pane. SharePoint sites are actually ASP.NET 2.0 applications, which are served using IIS and use a SQL Server database as data storage backend. Fundamentally, this book provides a high level overview of what SharePoint is and why one might use it. There is detailed discussion on the difference between SharePoint Portal and Windows SharePoint Services as well as the strengths and limitations of each product. Where this book differs from other SharePoint books though, is in the richly detailed sections dealing with the 100 most asked questions. There has never been a SharePoint Guide like this. 100 Success Secrets is not about the ins and outs of SharePoint. Instead, it answers the top 100 questions that we are asked and those we come across in forums, our consultancy and education programs. It tells you exactly how to deal with those questions, with tips that have never before been offered in print. This book is also not about SharePoint' best practice and standards details. Instead, it introduces everything you want to know to be successful with SharePoint. After you read this book, you will be able to take your first steps with SharePoint. Highly recommended.
