The 1st day was great, the majority of the content was very useful, however the last module we covered about creating custom web parts, was specifically targeted at ASP.NET 2 developers, which I’m not, however it did give us an idea of what’s required.
Today should be more of the same, detailing all the features/possibilities of SharePoint, looking foward to it. Tonight is also the opening party, not 100% sure what that entales, but we’ll find out soon enough.
