Doesn't do What it Says on the Tin
on 26 October 2010
As someone who is new to SharePoint I bought this book hoping it would teach me how to set up, configure and customise a SharePoint portal, or to put it another way how to build a SharePoint solution. It doesn't. This book should be called "SharePoint 2010 Development Principles". If you are looking for a guide on how to code for SharePoint in Visual Studio then this book is for you. If like me you are looking for a guide to help you install SharePoint, customise the look and feel and use SharePoint to implement various solutions then look elsewhere.
