Wrox author notes on SharePoint 2010
I’m back from a jam packed week at the SharePoint 2010 conference. Rather than bore you with my impressions of this "magical" product (Steve Ballmer’s word, not mine), I thought I’d point you to some of the interesting Wrox SharePoint author blogs that I’ve seen detailing what they think of SharePoint 2010:
Andrew hit the ground running and as soon as NDA was listed started a series of posts about improvements to SharePoint’s core, SharePoint’s new Service Application Architecture, and Web Content Management improvements.
Scot writes about why SharePoint 2010 Sand-boxed solutions are a game changer.
Steve writes about the SharePoint Business Connectivity Services, the successor to the SharePoint Business Data Catalog (BDC). Steve also hit one of my favorites: the huge improvements for SharePoint development coming in Visual Studio 2010.
Woody is impressed with Access Web Services, which will allow not only publishing an Access Database into a SharePoint site but also making changes to the database via SharePoint and still opening the edited site/database in Access.
Asif has been busy. He’s already posted a host of SharePoint 2010 videos! I won’t list them all here but check out videos on creating external content types using SharePoint Designer 2010, Configuring SharePoint Security using SharePoint Designer 2010, XSLT List View web parts, and many more.
Coskun likes the bigger role for Content Types, visual web part development, FAST Search, and much more.
This really just scratches the surface of the more than 7,000 attendees got to see at the conference. With SharePoint 2010 beta 2 coming to the public in November, a lot more of you will get to see all of this very soon. Have fun!
