You can learn about learn about SharePoint 2010 – the upcoming version of Microsoft’s enterprise information portal platform -- at the inaugural meeting of the Mississauga SharePoint User Group taking place this Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Microsoft’s Mississauga office. Rob Windsor from ObjectSharp will lead a session covering SharePoint 2010 with a particular focus on what’s new for developers. You’ll learn about the new designers, explorers and templates and overall developer experience. You’ll also see what’s new for your users, including the new ribbon interface, in-place editing and the new page and dialog interface model.
Many details surrounding Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 were announced at last week’s Microsoft SharePoint Conference in Las Vegas. One of SharePoint 2010’s top investments is user experience, from the ribbon UI, which allows users to easily add, modify and interact with content on the site, to mobile device support to its true multilingual user interface. Once you have the language packs installed and you set the appropriate languages on the sites, users will be able to interact with SharePoint in the language of their choice.
