Mirjam van Olst (SharePoint MCM and MVP) and myself took the challenge to find authors who are well known in the SharePoint Community, Sponsors who are willing to advertise in this magazine so we could cover the costs and the time to read, review and edit articles next to our busy jobs. Well... the results is this magazine! Over 100 pages with information for SharePoint professionals.
Playing with SharePoint 2010 you can’t help but to get excited about all the new possibilities. Have you looked at Visio Services or the Business Intelligence possibilities with the Chart Web Part? It looks very promising! Or have you been working with data using the SharePoint Designer. Talking about data, what about the enhancements of the Business Connectivity Services (previously known as the BDC). Very awesome! Personally I like the integration of Visual Studio Tools for SharePoint. It’s so easy now to develop, debug and deploy your solutions. But there are so many new things for a developer to look at; the Client Object Model, SandBoxed Solutions, UI Customizations and the Ribbon.
"Out of the Box" is a column on how you can create business solutions in SharePoint by configuring functionality (No Code Solutions). In this issue we look at Project Management with SharePoint.
Special in this magazine is the SharePoint Comic by Dan Lewis... make sure you don't miss it!
All of this and much more you will find in this first issue of the SharePoint eMagazine. SharePoint 2010 has so much to offer, this magazine size could easily be double. Enough for a second edition.. so who knows!
