This intensive 4-day course demonstrates how to make the most out of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 (SPF2010 formerly known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS 3.0) and SharePoint Server 2010 (SPS2010) without having to engage in any custom development. You will be shown how to create business solution using nothing more than the browser and Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2010 (SPD). The course is designed to give you hands-on experience with the most valuable functionality of SharePoint Server 2010.
The course will first walk you through the new SharePoint 2010 user interface and feature enhancements and then move on to an overview of SharePoint Designer 2010. Students will then learn how to create and customize content using SharePoint Designer 2010.
Microsoft has dramatically improved SharePoint Designer 2010 so power users can create robust and interactive pages using things like the new XSLT List View Web Part, improved editing controls for the powerful Data View Web Part and improved workflow authoring capabilities. Students will learn how to create robust solutions using these new capabilities as well as using InfoPath 2010 to create interactive and advanced form solutions.
Students will also learn how to create content-centric solutions using SharePoint Server's Web Content Management (WCM) and Enterprise Content Management (ECM) capabilities as well as consume and interact with data that resides in external systems using the new Business Connectivity Services (BCS) capacities.
In addition, the course will also guide students how to create offline SharePoint Server 2010 solutions using SharePoint Workspace 2010.
Attendees should have experience with the Internet Explorer and Office Products such as Word, Excel and Outlook. Previous experience with SharePoint (any version) is ideal but not required.
