For those of you not reading blogs ...
As mentioned last Thursday in the Church IT Podcast
What if you could attend a 5 day SharePoint training course taught by a
well known and respected Microsoft Certified SharePoint Trainer, author
and MVP ... for ... FREE!!??
NOTE: This same training goes for $2995 + $200 for training materials!
Interested? Good grief you should be!!
WNER)> has offered us church IT folks an incredible opportunity! Who
is this Bill character?
An author and educator specializing in SharePoint Products and
Technologies, Bill English (MCSE, MCSA, MVP, MCT) is an industry leader
on this exciting product set from Microsoft. Since 2000, Bill has
authored 11 books on Exchange and SharePoint products and is currently
working on another book with Microsoft Press.
Bill is the co-owner of Mindsharp (www.mindsharp.com
<http://mindsharp.com/> ), a company that offers top-notch educational
opportunities on the SharePoint platform.
He has presented at Comdex, The Microsoft Exchange Conference,
TechMentor, TechEd, Advisor Live, TechEd Europe and Networld Interop.
You can find his blog at his AdminCompanion
<http://admincompanion.mindsharp.com/default.aspx> book site.
Bill lives in Minnesota with his wife and two children where he enjoys
boating, photography and summer.
I'd say that qualifies Bill as an uber expert on SharePoint :-)
Details are still solidifying, but here's what's known at this point ...
* This training will happen the week of Jan 7th ... Monday through
Friday 9am-5pm. Put that on your calendar like right now!
* Slots available for up to 40 folks who are directly employed by
a church/ministry ... sorry, no outsourced staff
* Each person would have to bring their own laptop. The
requirements are 2GB Ram and 20GB free Disk space ... 1.5GB of the RAM
will be completely used by the image that will be provided to you.
* Cost will be kept as low as possible ... whatever it takes to
cover lunch and maybe facilities usage during the day.
* Training will be focused around the free SharePoint Services
product, but will also touch on the benefits that the full blown
SharePoint Server can offer. We'll also have a day or so on SharePoint
