Do you have a SharePoint installation that you’ve inherited (or you installed it on a whim and now it’s taken on a life of its own)? It seems to be okay, but you’re not quite sure what to do next? Feel as if you’re not quite in control of your implementation? Welcome to the kitchen sink session– where we take a look at a day in the life of a SharePoint Administrator. Using SharePoint Foundation (which is the foundation of the SharePoint Server 2010 product, as well as a stand-alone product in and of itself), we’ll explore the administrative tasks and concepts a SharePoint admin needs to know to successfully run a SharePoint implementation. From how to automate back-ups, to what the difference is between a web application, subsite, and site collection, how to secure lists and libraries, how to manage permissions, how to monitor your SharePoint server, and more. Ever had issues with lost web parts? Unsure about disaster recovery? Come see a little bit of everything in this six hour presentation and become more confident about your SharePoint implementation.

This presentation will be done on SharePoint Foundation 2010, which is the fundamental infrastructure of SharePoint Server 2010, so all administrative information applies to both. If you are using WSS 3.0 or SharePoint 2007, much of what is covered will still apply. This session is intended for newer IT pro SharePoint administrators or those who might want a more comprehensive refresher concerning all those basic things most other sessions just assume you know.
