SharePoint 2013 Wizard of Oz

“Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” – L. Frank Baum

Moving forward on our quest to begin migrating from SP2010 to  SP 2013, I think we may all be off to see the wizard indeed!

There are many great resources available for learning about what is happening with SharePoint 2013.  Mostly I would say that overall if you had access to SharePoint Designer, it appears that you probably need to consider looking into a obtaining a test envirnoment by way of a VM and installing Visual Studio 2012. 

This of course is pertaining to customizing and creating highly funtional business solutions.
