I am currently in the middle of a very large SharePoint 2007 to 2010 upgrade. I have purchased several books to help me get the job done, and this one is the only one that has really helped.
This book really covers everything on the administration side of SharePoint 2010 in great detail. You can tell the team that wrote it knows the guts of SharePoint 2010. It really is all inclusive. I have not gone to this book looking for answer that I could not find yet.
The CD that comes with the book has the ebook version of the book. They included an XPS version, but it will not open. It says it is corrupt. The XPS version being corrupt doesn't really matter, the PDF version works for finding all the references to a topic quickly.
The CD also includes a 526 page MICROSOFT SHAREPOINT FOUNDATION 2010 CMDLET REFERENCE that really helps find out the details of all the PowerShell commands you can now use with SharePoint.
There is a reason why SharePoint 2010 is called a "Platform" and not an application. It is because SharePoint has more to it than anyone could imagine. It is the same with this book. This is the type of book I was looking for to handle the administrative side of SharePoint for SP 2010. I would imagine that if your only focus is to develop web parts, or set up web pages, that you will eventually be looking for an Administrator's book for SharePoint. This would be your book! Additionally, it is impossible to cover every aspect of this book due to its depth. We will look at some of the important concepts covered.
The authors of "Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Administrator's Companion" are: Bill English, Brian Alderman, and Mark Ferraz. It is typical nowadays for all of us to Google the name of any person whom we want to know more about. I did that for these three authors. Each of these three gentlemen has extensive and impressive knowledge and credentials. You can trust what they...
This SharePoint book is pretty much aimed at the enterprise version of SharePoint. There are mentions of SharePoint Foundation but not a lot. There is obviously a lot of stuff in common as this is SharePoint but most of the specifics focus on the enterprise features.
There are certainly parts of the book were it goes into depth on topics but the major seemed to be more an overview than a deep dive. That certainly provided insight into the features of the different components yet it didn't quite show you how to get it running in a practical situation. Given the recent release of Windows Phone 7 the chapter on integration with Windows Phone 6.5 now seems a little dated. It would nice to see some focus being put on integration with non Microsoft platforms like Android and iOS, even if via third party apps.
This is certainly a book worthwhile having and would recommend it to those with intermediate skills in SharePoint and those looking to become more skilled with...
