Beginning SharePoint 2010 Administration - A Review

January 07, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 189

Take a look behind the scenes and you will understand... that's the key point of this book. If you are not familiar with SharePoint in general, basic concepts, or use cases and if you wonder why you (may) need SharePoint you should read this book. All of the questions are answered and in combination with basic technical administration tasks you will not only get an understanding of how to do it... you will also know why to do it. Let's start from the beginning... the book has 14 chapters written by Göran Husman and Christian Ståhl:

Introduction to Microsoft SharePoint 2010Building SharePoint Foundation SitesOffice IntegrationContent Management in SharePoint 2010Managing My SitesSharePoint AdministrationBuilding Intranets and Internet PortalsCustomizing SharePoint 2010Using SharePoint Designer 2010Backup and RestoreInstalling SharePoint Foundation 2010Configuring SharePoint Foundation 2010Installing Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010Configuring SharePoint Server 2010

The writing itself is adequate, it's neither boring nor difficult or funny. The length of a chapter is around 30 to 50 sites depending on the complexity of the subject. Each chapter has easy to understand examples as well as graphics, diagrams and screenshots where necessary. With a summary at the end of each chapter you can sum up the things you have read.

The biggest strength of this book are the chapters 1 to 9 since these are the chapters telling you the concept behind each administration task. You will understand the task itself, the things you need and the things you have to consider. Chapters 10 to 14 are additional chapters... you should read them first because they tell you how to install SharePoint 2010. Here it's not that important to understand things from the beginning since on the one hand you need a running instance for chapter 1 to 10 and on the other hand the understanding comes with the use of SharePoint.

All in all a SharePoint 2010 Book which can be recommended.

Markus Ramirez is an independent SharePoint developer mainly in Switzerland but also in Germany and Austria. As a trainer he tries to sensitize people to take a look behind things in order to understand them.
