Live SharePoint Foundation Presentation series: Session 3, Users and Permissions, this Thursday!

I thought I'd get a jump start on letting you all know about the third session in my four part SharePoint Foundation for admins series. These sessions are completely free, live, and online. So if you're (or someone you know is) interested in free SharePoint Foundation training, the third of my sessions will be held on Thursday of this week (11/11), at 3 pm Eastern.

The session will be recorded (if the technology gods allow it), and it will be for 90 minutes (give or take). The contents essentially map to the Users and Permissions chapter of my upcoming Mastering SharePoint Foundation book, and will delve into Users, Permission, Permission Levels, Groups, Inheritance, and more. From Central Administration and Farm Administrators, to breaking inheritance, with a touch of PowerShell, this session will give you some simple, clear insights into what is often a muddy subject.

Because the sessions are live, participation is encourage (otherwise, why not just record it?). Come one, come all to the third of the four SharePoint Foundation sessions for admins I'm offering this year.

Live SharePoint Foundation Presentation series: Session 2 - Complete Installation & Configuration Today!

Howdy all!

For those of you interested in some free training, the second of my four LIVE, online sessions will be held today at 3pm Eastern. The session will be primarily live demonstration of how to prepare for a Complete, farm installation of SharePoint Foundation, from preparing for managed accounts, to how to set up outgoing/incoming email, Business Data Connectivity, etc. See how to set up a web application and the first site collection.

In addition, get an insight to the Mastering SharePoint Foundation 2010 book itself, as the virtual machines used for these presentations are the same ones used throughout the book.

Since the presentation will be live, you can ask questions and interact with the presenter (well, me). There could even be a few hilarious bloopers you can't get in a recorded webcast.

Come one, come all the the free session today. Link: https://www.livemeeting.com/cc/mvp/join?id=Z6662P&role=attend
