    • What is the impact or cost?
    • Are there any exceptions?
    • What is the fix or workaround if I’ve already made the mistake?

  • Re-Experience SharePoint: Ripping Apart the SharePoint 2010 Interface

    by Mark Miller

    At the KMWorld Conference last year, Peter Moreville said something in the keynote that rang as true as the Liberty Bell: "When competing for grants, the prettiest pictures win the funding." This was an epiphany for me. We all know it's true, but are we taking advantage of it? Are we using all of the resources at our disposal to create an intuitive interface that will encourage participation and user buy-in of our sites?

    In this session, we'll examine a default team site created in SharePoint 2010. We'll rip apart the presentation layer, piece by piece, exposing the underlying structure and CSS to see what can be done to create a more intuitive and aesthetically pleasing site.

    At the conclusion of the session, you will have an understanding of how the presentation layer of SharePoint pages is structured and what you can do to make your site stand out from the basic SharePoint sites you see everyday. To paraphrase Moreville, "When it comes to End User buy-in, the interface wins the funding." Let's work together to get you that funding.
