About this book


Part 1 is designed to acquaint you with SharePoint and to teach you about its functionality. Part 2 will then guide you through the different components of SharePoint. You’ll learn about the functionality associated with each of these components in a step-by-step fashion, while building out a usable scenario. Each situation is drawn from a real-world scenario that I’ve encountered, and you may be able to adapt them for your own use.

This book is intended for tech-savvy business users:

  • An end user of SharePoint who doesn’t have a computer science degree but wants to optimize the technology they have at hand
  • The developer who doesn’t understand SharePoint’s built-in capabilities
