Beginning SharePoint 2007 – Our First Book Review, by Mike Walsh

I’m glad to say that our book, Beginning SharePoint 2007 is now available to the masses.  Amanda and I are both eagerly awaiting reviews which is why we were pleased to see that Mike Walsh appears to be the first out of the gate to talk about it.

Those of you who know Mike Walsh know that he really isn’t one to “kick things under the rug” if he doesn’t like it, he will tell you so I can confidently say that you will get a pretty accurate description from him.

You might notice at times during the course of the book (and in Mikes review) the mention of SharePoint versus WSS.  Unfortunately during a very rigorous editing process, it’s relatively easily for ‘simple’ cut/paste or change jobs to fly under the radar unnoticed and this is one of those times.

So, when you see WSS versus SharePoint just keep in mind that it should read WSS versus MOSS.  When referring to SharePoint 2007, we are referring to MOSS 2007 + WSS 3.0  collectively.

    I know I’m a few days late on this one (ok, a week or so), but the book arrived today and I must say – first look, I’m impressed with the book. We’re about to upgrade one of our SharePoint 2003 servers to 2007 and while we had an MVP come in for training, it really didn’t cover SharePoint – more customizing it.

    I’ll post a review as soon as I can. Keep up the good work!
