Yesterday I received an email from my MVP Lead.
I have been renewed as a SharePoint Server MVP for the fifth year in a row 🙂
It’s a great honor and a huge pleasure for me.
I wish to congratulate with all new and renewed MVPs.
And special compliments to Igor (my friend, colleague and boss @ Green Team) and Robi Voncina, whom I met in Slovenia during the local SharePoint Events and who has been awarded for the first time.
During the last month Igor and I have been working on a new book, which has finally been published.
It is all about (guess what…) the Office365 platform 🙂
The first chapters represent a high level overview of the services, explaining what you get “out of the cloud” and how you can configure your subscription according to business requirements and user needs.
Then, a section is dedicated to the administration of these services.
Specific chapters are dedicated to Exchange Online, Lync Online and the Office WebApps.
And… oh, yes, SharePoint Online: end-user experience, customizations, workflows and even a short appendix on SharePoint development.
The book is available both in bookstores and online.
A huge, special thank you goes to Riccardo Celesti (who wrote the chapter about Workflows in SharePoint Online) and to Roberto D’Angelo (who wrote such a wonderful foreword).
Yesterday I have been celebrating the new year with Cappelletti and Sangiovese (typical food and wine from Romagna).
I played Tombola after lunch (and I accidentally won).
Then I checked my inbox and I got the email that I have been renewed as an MVP for another year!
This year had a very nice start !!!!
I had the opportunity to contribute to this amazing project, Real World SharePoint 2010 – Indispensable Experiences from 22 MVPs, now published by Wrox (http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTitle/Real-World-SharePoint-2010-Indispensable-Experiences-from-22-MVPs.productCd-0470597135.html).
The book is a sort of anthology, made up of several indipendent, although related topics about SharePoint 2010: workflows, BCS, authentication, management, client and server development.
I wrote, together with my friend and colleague Igor Macori, the chapter about to Digital Assets Management: it covers both administration and development tasks, and it is aimed at providing an overview of the main aspects you should consider while analyzing and defining a DAM solution.
Take a look, you’re going to find somenthing interesting and, I hope, even something fun 🙂
