Over the next few weeks I’m building the new SharePoint 2010 Developer Course for Firebrand Training. These are exciting times for SharePoint 2007 (MOSS and WSS 3.0) developers looking to acquire new skills.
I’ve just read a really thought-provoking blog post from Patrick Sledz (@patman2520) on Microsoft’s approach to bringing SharePoint to market.
SharePoint Comes of Age
It strikes me that SharePoint is a product that’s taken a while to mature, but mature it certainly has. The several first iterations of the technology stack didn’t really have very much in the way of targeted Developer or IT Pro learning.
Well, I’ve finally got round to it. I’m running a 5-day public SharePoint Developer course out of our offices at Brighton, UK. The dates are pretty soon – 27-31 July 2009.
Since this month I’ve been a Microsoft Certified Trainer. I’ve not got round to blogging it until now. This means I’m certified to teach a metric tonne of courses. Including the SharePoint courses 5060/5061 (Administration) and 50064 (Development). Drop me a line if you’re interested!
