SharePoint 2010 Resources

Well the flood gates were opened last week at the SharePoint Conference in Las Vegas. It was a great week. I’ve gotten a number of questions about resources so I thought I would share some of the ones I think are valuable. Your list may be different so if you have a favorite one not on the list below send it to me and I’ll add it (maybe). The list below is in no particular order. As time goes on, this list will definitely get longer.

SharePoint 2010 Web site. The site should definitely be bookmarked. This is the “all-up” site for SharePoint 2010, and therefore should be your one-stop shop for new information. One thing to note, check out the upper right-hand corner of the home page; this site is running on SharePoint 2010 beta. Yes, you heard me…well you read me anyway; it is running on SP2010 beta. What do you think about that level of confidence! Also, make sure to install the Silverlight v3 player. That’s right, we are up to v3 and getting better and more powerful with each version.
