SetFocus Forms SharePoint 2010 Transition Team of Industry Experts to Present Seminar Series March 18-19

The aim of the SharePoint 2010 Seminar Series is to provide access to experts with helpful, practical information and tips to ensure a seamless transition to the new platform.

SetFocus (, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner for Learning Solutions, has responded to the need of millions of SharePoint licensees by gathering a team of industry experts to present a series of seminars on easing the transition to SharePoint 2010.

SharePoint Server is one of the most widely adopted products in Microsoft history with over 100 million current licensees. Although powerful, earlier versions of SharePoint “can be difficult to bend or stretch if you’re not a .NET developer” remarked Kevin S. Goff, Microsoft MVP, “SharePoint 2010 is poised to prove the third time’s the charm paradigm.”

With SharePoint 2010 due to launch in the first half of this year, businesses are eager to implement this “friendlier” version to improve efficiency and productivity. Current licensees face the challenge of maintaining productivity while transitioning from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010.

“Our SharePoint 2010 Seminar Series ( is a great way for current SharePoint developers, administrators, architects, and power users to learn the key aspects of SharePoint 2010 from experts in the field all in one shot” declared Matt Jandorf, SetFocus Manager of Corporate Relations. “Our aim is to provide access to experts with helpful, practical information and tips to ensure a seamless transition to the new platform.”

The Seminar Series comprises 4 half-day sessions on March 18 and 19, 2010.

The first seminar on the morning of the 18th, “Developing with LINQ to SharePoint 2010”, features Steven Fowler, sought-after author, speaker and instructor with over 15 years of progressive software project management, architecture and engineering experience. Steven has worked with SharePoint since its 2003 version, recently completed one of the world’s largest SharePoint implementations, and has SharePoint 2010 projects already underway.

“Migrate to SharePoint 2010 - Stress Free!” the 2nd of the series, will be presented by Nick Kellett, CTO of StoneShare, and a recognized expert in the areas of Web 2.0 and SharePoint. Nick was one of the first professionals in the world to achieve a MS SharePoint certification and hosts a lively SharePoint blog aptly named Planet MOSS.

The morning of the 19th commences with the 3rd seminar, “SharePoint 2010 Branding”, featuring David Sterling, author, consultant, and CEO of Sterling International Consulting Group. A Microsoft technology specialist since the 90’s, David is a noted SharePoint expert and author of “Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 – The Complete Reference”.

Kevin S. Goff will round out the 4-seminar series with “Business Intelligence with Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010” on the afternoon of the 19th. Kevin is an instructor and courseware developer for SetFocus and 6-time recipient of the Microsoft MVP award.
