I love this book and couldn't put it down once started reading it, but I am a geek and that's the kind of stuff I like. I thought Shannon laid out the material in an easy to understand fashion. Discovered a lot of good SharePoint information that wasn't obvious to me. This books will be a great asset when I design my next SharePoint farm.Michael Wharton, Project MVP, MBA, MCT, MCDBA< MCSD, MCSE+I, MCTS
I'm in the process of upgrading two clients from a 2010 to a 2013 SharePoint farm and have studied plenty of materials out there while earning my MCSE in SharePoint, and teaching the Core Solutions SharePoint 2013 course, but this book takes all that material and ties into useful and practical guidance and directions.It gives you resources for discovering the 2010 farm before the upgrade (which is invaluable to me as a consultant) as well as a chapter about optimizing the SQL server environment for SharePoint and the section about installing SharePoint using least privilege is very cohesive. This section causes my clients and students more problems that anything else in setting up and securing a farm, but this book outlines it very clearly.I'd recommend this book to new and experienced farm administrators that are looking at upgrading to a SharePoint 2013 or building a shiny new SharePoint farm. Enjoy SharePointing!
Thanks for writing such a focused book on SharePoint 2013.Chapter by Chapter, clean, easy to understand and revise in this busy working environment.I am migrating our company's Intranet (12000+ users) and book is helpful overall.Author took great care to combine information from different sources and put in a book which is a great time saver.Searching information in MSDN is time consuming and this book makes your life much easier, specially when you are busy with planning.Thanks, Thanks, and Thanks :) for producing such a useful resource.
The content is what the title says. Well organized and well written. I know far too little about how to design and set up SharePoint 2013 farms to have any objections, but I enjoyed reading the book and if I get in the position to design and set up a SharePoint farm from scratch I will reread the book carefully. (Pity that this book has not a companion ebook).
