Professional Microsoft Search Book Review:

Written by three of the most recognized influencers in the Microsoft SharePoint community, this book sheds light on SharePoint Search in the enterprise and focuses solely on Microsoft Search technology. This book is intended for a range of folks from the IT administrator to the developer writing search applications. We span many topics in this book to try to cover the breadth of using, administering, and developing on the SharePoint Search technologies. The developer chapters will be important for the administrator to understand, since developers and administrators have to work together to make Search work. On the flip side, the administrator chapters will be important for developers to understand the architecture and administration of Search because, without this knowledge, writing to the APIs will be more difficult. Most readers will benefit from reading all the chapters in this book. This book covers the breadth of the SharePoint Search technologies from Search Server to Windows SharePoint Services to Office SharePoint Server. We also include information on the latest search technologies coming from Microsoft, including the new federation capabilities, filter pack, and the recently acquired FAST technologies. This book is structured in such a way that you can read it from end to end. The chapters are laid out in such a way that they build on each other, starting with an overview chapter and ending with an API chapter that shows you how to program against all the technology about which you just learned. If you are new to SharePoint, the first few chapters will be important for you to understand and digest before moving on, since the array of search technologies can be overwhelming for someone new to them. For experienced SharePoint readers, the overview chapters are a good refresher to skim through, but you probably can skip right to the detailed chapters, starting with Chapter 3, Planning and Deploying an Enterprise Search Solution. The topics covered include: Introduction to Enterprise Search. Overview of Microsoft Enterprise Search Products. Planning and Deploying an Enterprise Search Solution. Configuring and Administering Search. Searching LOB Systems with the BDC. User Profiles and People Search. Extending Search with Federation. Securing Your Search Results. Customizing the Search Experience. Understanding and Tuning Relevance. Building Applications with the Search API and Web Services. To get the most from this book, you will want a copy of Office SharePoint Server. Windows SharePoint Services or Search Server will work, but you will not have access to all the search capabilities we talk about in the book. One easy way to get an evaluation copy of SharePoint is to download the SharePoint virtual machine from MSDN. You can find a link to the virtual machine on the SharePoint home page at www.microsoft.com/office/sharepoint. This virtual machine, while large, is preconfigured for you so that you can start working with the SharePoint Search technologies without having to install all the software and configure it.

Social Computing with Microsoft SharePoint 2007 Book Review:

Social computing is a fast-moving technology, and many of the concepts grow or change every year. Use this book as part of your research for how you will implement any of the social computing applications, but also use online research for keeping updated on new changes to this exciting area of software today. Although social computing applications can be written on any framework or even on their own, we have taken a unique approach to help you understand the landscape of social computing as it relates to SharePoint 2007. Each chapter introduces you to the concept of the chapter, for example, the RSS chapter gives a brief overview of what RSS is and the history behind it. Then the chapter provides a section of how this is possible with SharePoint 2007. Finally, if there are any extensions that would make it easier to work with social computing and SharePoint, such as open source code or products you can buy, we briefly discuss these options so you are aware of them for your organization. This book was written for anyone who is approaching social computing applications for an enterprise. This would include developers, managers, directors, and even C-level executives. This book is designed to help decision makers learn about the concepts and understand how they might implement them in their own company. Although this book does reach out to developers, most of the chapters give examples with either built-in options and configuration or show how to use code already installed on SharePoint. Anyone interested in social computing and the topics covered in each chapter could read this book to get an understanding of what each concept has. The You Try It sections do require having SharePoint 2007 and some of the features installed to actually attempt them. If you are not an IT professional or developer, this is the perfect opportunity for you to start a discussion with your technology group to try out some of these wonderful tools. The book is designed to allow the reader to start from not knowing about social computing to being able to have an understanding of the concepts and how he or she would use them in his or her company. To accomplish this, you can read the book from front cover to back, or you can pick the specific chapter that your organization is interested in. Because so many people want to know exactly what the topics are and what they are about, we have organized the book into chapters that work together, but stand alone and provide complete coverage of a topic. We have also used a very simple and direct naming of each chapter so you can quickly recognize what the chapter is about and what it covers. This book covers the major concepts, applications, and implementations of social computing and shows how they are built with SharePoint 2007 today. As you noticed earlier, this is a fast-moving area of computing. Where SharePoint 2007 does not have the capability today, we made sure and explained how you could extend SharePoint 2007 with open source or products you can purchase. We did not cover every product on the market, but we gave you any idea of what you can look for when you are trying to extend SharePoint. The first two chapters provide the introduction for people new to social computing and how people will have to manage a social computing project. The following chapters break out each concept into a chapter to make it easy to get up to speed and understand what the topic is about. Chapter 1 provides the introduction to what social computing is and the concepts behind social computing applications and discusses some of the technologies your organization might use to implement these concepts. Chapter 2 describes how to build a successful project around social computing. This chapter takes you through steps that can make your team more successful, discusses the
