I concur with all parties that have already added to Henry Johnson’s recent blog “How SharePoint Chose Me”.
I’ve been affiliated with the SharePoint platform since 2003 and have loved every minute of it. This Microsoft “platform” continues to not only make sense to me, but made me grow as a professional on levels I never realized possible. The beauty of it all is that it provides a way for people to collaborate. Isn’t that what we truly need when you get down to the basics? If you’re really, truly interested in diving off the deep end, I suggest you make it talk to other line of business applications as well by way of External Content Types and List. This is available in the BCS segment of SP2013. I believe this is one of the biggest secrets that need to be revealed throughtout businesses using this platform.
Most importantly, it’s about providing a way for everyone, yes IT – that means you too, to interface with each other in a cooperative and cohesive way. I am a firm believer that this can do done. [Traditional smiley face insert here.]
I was once lost, but now I’m found and I can’t stop doing things “SharePoint Style”!!
