Over the last 4-5 years I have had intense exposure to SharePoint. I have covered so many aspects of SharePoint that it is just not possible to keep hold of them in memory on a long term basis. It had been in my mind to start a blog mainly for the purpose of reminding myself what I have learnt about SharePoint over the last 4-5 years before it starts gradually fading away from memory. At the same time I am hoping it will help some people out there just as numerous blog posts and articles have helped me with my issues surrounding SharePoint.
I am a SharePoint Technical Architect with over 4 years of commercial experience in Microsoft SharePoint development. I am a Microsoft Certified Application Developer (MCAD) and a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist in SharePoint Configuration and Application Development (MOSS 2007). In addition to this I am a Microsoft Certified Professional Developer in SharePoint 2010.
I specialise in SharePoint, with roughly 4-5 years experience in which I have dealt with almost every artefact of SharePoint to some degree. I recently worked on a major project for an Energy giant whereby their Intranet portal (based on SPS 2003) needed to be migrated to MOSS 2007 like for like.
We successfully developed a Multi-threaded Migration Tool (written in C#) that purely utlised the object model of SharePoint and successfully migrated over 200 Gig of data. It replicated the SPS 2003 Portal on the new MOSS 2007 Portal. Successfully replicating the Site Collections, Sites, Lists (Views, Fields, ListItems), Documents, Attachments, Web Parts, Permissions, Pages e.t.c. and their individual properties.
Apart from this I love playing and watching all kinds of sports and also enjoy keeping myself upto date with the latest development technologies.
