It was a dark autumn night when private investigator AJ was sitting in his office, looking f- ward to the next day's bottle of bourbon. He wasn't much looking forward to anything; rather, it would be more correct to say he hated his life a little bit less when he got a few shots of bo- bon. Today's bottle was empty, and reality had started to crawl up his spine. You may very well wonder what this has to do with SharePoint. The answer is absolutely nothing However, it has something to do with what you are about to read. You are about to embark on a journey into the deepest secrets of SharePoint, a journey that will not only teach you about the architecture and user experience of SharePoint but also take you along a journey of exploration and of building an empire. The first part of this book will deal with basics--what you need in order to get the most out of the remaining parts of the book. The second part will deal with exploration. Think of it as a guided tour through Share- Point Land where I will explain and show you the sights to see. Beware, though, because there will be dangers aplenty. In the third part of this book, you will start building an empire that will stand the test of time. You will construct your own SharePoint solution and put some of your newly acquired knowledge into practical use.
