Last week I had the opportunity to view the workshop put on by Mark Miller from EndUserSharePoint.com. I have to admit that I am not a real big “end user” of SharePoint. I am really an end user of Visual Studio. So it was very helpful to put myself in the shoes of others for a few hours.
I have a project coming up in which I need to build a video library in SharePoint. While I’m sure that I can build something pretty fancy, I don’t want to administer this library forever. That is where this workshop helped me: What concepts/actions are comfortable for end users? What issues will they face when using my application? What features does SharePoint provide that I can reuse?
So, it seems to me that EndUserSharePoint.com is not valuable only to end-users. Even bit-twiddlers like me can benefit. If you see a workshop that looks relevant to your project, I encourage you to attend. You won’t regret it!
