Learn SharePoint

Please rate this blog post!

To learn SharePoint has been a challenge over the past decade, but I wouldn’t have learned at least half of what I know if it had not been for some really great people and events in the SharePoint industry who take their time and efforts to shamelessly promote themselves as much as I attempt to. Here are my favorite “peeps”, resources, video, and events from the SharePoint ‘hood to help you learn SharePoint…

Online Tutorials & Courses

Social Media

  • #1 thing you should do: GET ON TWITTER and start following SharePoint pros. If you like you can see who I am following to start you off then add or remove persons as it works for you. @matthewjbailey1
  • Join the SharePoint groups all over LinkedIn
  • Yammer – this is sort of a repeat of above, is this social media? I am not sure but check out the link above 🙂
  • Facebook – there are a few SharePoint things on there but not as many as Twitter and such
  • Google + also has a couple of groups or “hangouts” you could join
