Wanna get a sneak peek at what Microsoft SharePoint 2010 looks like? You can check out the new features in the videos on this page at Microsoft’s SharePoint site. There are 3 videos out there: Overview, IT Pro and Developer focused. Keep in mind that you will need Silverlight in order to watch these videos so please download it first if you don’t have it installed already.

Since I’m not a developer anymore, my focus was more so on watching the Overview and the IT Pro videos. Here are a few things to look out for which are discussed in the videos:

Tom Rizzo’s Overview video

  • SharePoint Designer’s new UI and the enhanced capabilities (my favorite of course :-))
  • Visio Server integration
  • SharePoint Workspace (formerly Groove)
  • Editing content directly and easily on web pages
  • Silverlight web part
  • Multiple browser support
  • The new BDC (now called Business Connectivity Services)

Richard Riley’s IT Pro video

  • The new and easy to use look of SharePoint’s Central Administration
  • SharePoint Best Practices Analyzer
  • Support and guidance for working with large Lists
  • Usage Reporting
  • How Visual Upgrade will work

I don’t know about you, but I’m Super Excited about the new version of SharePoint. As soon as I am allowed to (which is most probably late October), I will be posting Lots of screencasts on the SharePoint-eLearning.com website to show you the new functionality in SharePoint 2010. Stay tuned…
