I took a SharePoint 2010 - Level 1 class and was amazed to learn its capabilities such as sharing documents, internal websites, blogs, mobile access, and email. Just to name a few.
Using a virtual machine is also really cool. It's a somewhat Star Wars-game-like experience. The virtual machine allows you to log on and work as if you are really in SharePoint. Great way to practice, practice, practice.
Next is SharePoint 2010 - Level 2. I can't wait.
Anyone have suggestions to help a newbie become a SharePoint expert? Hollah because I'm all ears.
