While presenting at a SharePoint user group session in Germany last month, I had a conversation with an attendee about the new app model in SharePoint 2013, and how different the model was compared to all the work his company had done around sandbox solutions in 2010. He observed that purchasing an app through the Microsoft marketplace, while having gone through a technical review from Microsoft, could still open up his company’s environment to potential risk depending on the content it accessed and what company or individual information is stored in the cloud.

As I’ve been traveling, I’ve received a number of questions from folks about where they can get my content to view “offline”, on the road, etc. With many thanks to Franklin Teagle, who spearheads our SharePoint Community Site, I can share with you a list of recent videos and recordings that he compiled. These are “live” recordings, with questions and answers, glitches, demos and “uh’s and ah’s”, but they’re a great way to catch up with some (if I may say so) pretty good SharePoint content
SharePoint is a great productivity tool with almost endless possibilities in customizations and flexibility even for endusers. This is exactly what endusers want, because the have lot of ad-hoc requirements besides the strict processes and core-it-systems.
SHAREPOINT IS EASY TO DEPLOY, EASY TO USE AND EASY TO ADAPT!
