About the Author:

Todd Klindt  has been a professional
computer nerd for 15 years, and was an amateur computer nerd before
that. After finding out in college that his desire for food
and shelter and his abilities at programming were not
compatible, he decided to try being an administrator instead. He
got his MCSE in 1997 and spent a lot of time taming Windows
Server, Exchange Server, and the unlucky SQL Server here and there.
In 2002 he was tasked with setting up a web page for his IT
department. He couldn’t program, and he couldn’t design with
HTML to save his life. He found SharePoint Team Services on an
Office XP CD and decided to give it a shot. Turns out SharePoint
was just what the doctor ordered. As each version of
SharePoint was released, Todd became more and more enamored with
it. In 2005 Todd was awarded Microsoft’s MVP award for Windows
SharePoint Services. Since then he has written for a couple of
SharePoint books, a couple of magazine articles, and had the
pleasure of speaking in more places than he can believe. To pay the
bills he’s a SharePoint consultant and trainer
with SharePoint911. He can be found on Twitter dispensing
invaluable SharePoint and relationship advice as @ToddKlindt. For
the web 1.0 folks he also has a blog at
