It has been quite some time since my last blog post. With the release of SharePoint 2013, I spent my focus working on my new book Microsoft SharePoint 2013: Designing and Architecting Solutions; it will be published by MS Press. I also don’t like to blog about a product that hasn’t RTM’d yet. Microsoft has a way of changing the product and many of the early blog posts become meaningless.
My book is due for completion in January and I am hoping for a release around March. The chapter line up looks like this:
Chapter 1: Understanding the Microsoft SharePoint 15 Architecture
Chapter 2: Introducing Windows PowerShell and the Wave 15 cmdlets
Chapter 3: Gathering Requirements
Chapter 4: Understanding the Service Application Model
Chapter 5: Designing for SharePoint’s Storage Requirements
Chapter 6: Mapping Authentication and Authorization to Requirements
Chapter 7: Designing for Platform Security
Chapter 8: Planning an Upgrade Strategy
Chapter 9: Maintaining and Monitoring Microsoft SharePoint
Chapter 10: Planning your Business Continuity Management Strategy
Chapter 11: Validating Your Architecture
I have learned quite a bit by researching the book and hope to get some blog content out after SPC 2012.
