SharePoint Weekly

Issue 11

So it seems traveling and trying to put out a weekly newsletter don't really mix! However I'm back after 5 weeks away and hopefully we can resume normal service. If you have any feedback or ideas on how to make this newsletter better and more useful please just reply to this email. Encouragement to make sure it goes out each week would be appreciated as well :-)

Remember - all tweets mentioning SharePoint Weekly are really appreciated - if you are new to this newsletter please click here to subscribe
