Free SharePoint Training on Your Desktop

Posted by workerthread on December 21, 2007

So you’re home for the Christmas break, fed up with the usual holiday TV specials, and you’ve brought your laptop with you.  So why not download the free SharePoint Training from the Microsoft Office web site? 

There’s a standalone version for your desktop and a Portal edition for MOSS 2007 (which even includes a reporting function that allows an administrator/trainer to track learners’ completed training topics!).

Tafiti Search Visualisation – Code now on CodePlex

Posted by workerthread on December 19, 2007

Tafiti is a Microsoft search Visualisation site developed using Silverlight, with Live Search as its search engine.  You can take a look at the Tafiti site here (you will need to get the Silverlight bits downloaded before you can use it).

The Windows live dev team are now releasing the source code for the Tafiti project on CodePlex, so if you are developing search solutions you can now download the code, and even use it in your own commercial solutions.  More information on this here.

Apparently Tafiti means “do research” in Swahili…
