sharepoint resources

without comments

Here’s some resources that I’ve found helpful getting to grips with the darling SharePoint. I may hold my tongue on the subject of accessibility.

I haven’t been on any training courses but most SP training courses are aimed at either writers or technical folks. This TFPL one looks good for a IM/IA audience. Anyone signed up to go?

All my SharePoint bookmarks are on delicious.

TFPL’s SharePoint conference

without comments

I spent Tuesday at TFPL’s SharePoint conference, described by the chair as a gathering of critical fans.

It was held in the Henry Wellcome auditorium at the Wellcome Collection, a very comfy place (dangerously so in the session after lunch)

Here are some quotes to give you a flavour of the day. I’ll do a proper write-up for FUMSI later.

“content management is the weakest point of SharePoint”

“I deleted 80% of the intranet content and no-one noticed”

“content management is in this weird space, fighting with accessibility”

” SharePoint help is c**p”

“please don’t tell me you were at school in 1991”

“out of the box doesn’t cut it for anyone”

“Groove is an interesting puppy”

“SFW are the best people I’ve found. They performed exceptionally and beyond expectation, gave me exactly what I wanted. I’m a happy client”

“…so the problem with search is not the technology, it’s the users”

(Google must be laughing that their rivals still don’t see anything wrong with that final quote)
