Things have been a little crazy over the past month, but now that the holidays are upon us I have a spare second to actually toot my own horn a little (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Everyone probably already knows this, but I figured I should still do a blog post to announce that at the end of last month my SharePoint 2010 branding book was officially published:
Professional SharePoint 2010 Branding and User Interface Design – Published by Wrox
This was my big project for 2010. Myself, John Ross, Jacob Sanford, Paul Stubbs, and Larry Riemann worked on creating a book for both beginners and professionals that want to learn about making SharePoint look as great as it performs. Here is the Table of Contents for the book:
- PART I: INTRODUCTION TO SHAREPOINT BRANDING.
- Chapter 1: What Is SharePoint Branding?
- Chapter 2: What’s New in SharePoint 2010.
- PART II: BRANDING BASICS.
- Chapter 3: Planning for Branding.
- Chapter 4: SharePoint Designer 2010 Overview.
- Chapter 5: Simple Branding.
- Chapter 6: Working with Navigation.
- PART III: ADVANCED BRANDING.
- Chapter 7: Cascading Style Sheets in SharePoint.
- Chapter 8: Master Pages.
- Chapter 9: Page Layouts.
- Chapter 10: Web Parts and XSLT.
- Chapter 11: Deploying Branding in SharePoint.
- PART IV: OTHER BRANDING CONCEPTS.
- Chapter 12: Page Editing and the Ribbon.
- Chapter 13: The Client Object Model and jQuery.
- Chapter 14: Silverlight and SharePoint Integration.
You can purchase the paperback book online from several retailers like Amazon (http://amzn.to/bHau4J). Barnes and Noble lists the book as available for in store purchase but I haven’t seen it actually in any stores local to me yet. If you want to purchase it in store, you may need to request they purchase a few copies. Lastly, for those of you that want a digital version on your computer you can purchase an Adobe Acrobat version directly from Wrox (http://bit.ly/aEHwT6).
Thanks to my author team and everyone in the community that helped make this book a reality!
