An introduction to SharePoint 2010
I have been volunteered to evaluate / learn sharepoint as we are considering it as a platform for meeting some of our business needs. However I have no sharepoint experience and having spent the last hour making two pages I was wondering if you guys could give me any pointers on getting started?
Sorry for the vagueness of this question, we have ordered some sharepoint books which wont be here for a few days and I'd like to at least make a start on this today.
Firstly as a way of learning sharepoint I have decided I will convert an existing website we have into a sharepoint one. So what I want to do is create a site which has a series of pages which are basically forms with some validation and required fields.
Also I would ideally like the data stored in a SQL Server database of my choosing.
Is this something I can create with sharepoint, and if so which of the templates would be best?
And if you know of any tutorials that would point me in the right direction I would be very grateful. Thanks
