This week I get to be a student in the SharePoint for Developers class at Interface taught by Simon Allardice. The courseware was written by Mr. Allardice himself, and is the best format I have ever seen. Instead of the typical "powerpoint" slide format common even of Microsoft courseware, his materials are incredibly visual. Just flipping through the courseware I see screenshot after screenshot with annotations that really make the whole experience seem less intimidating.
I personally have never developed in SharePoint, so I look forward to a great class. Of course, in Simon's typical (unique) fashion, he started the class off by informing us "There is no such thing as SharePoint." With that said, I will keep you posted as to what he means in subsequent blogs througout the week.
