above any other SharePoint reference. "The fact that so many people have
been involved in this project is what makes it 'definitive.' One or two

particular area or topic, but eleven subject-matter experts can cover a
huge cross section of understanding."

applications, and extensions, you'll learn how to build and customize
SharePoint sites that will meet your users' needs.
This book explains how to:

forms, and business intelligence

to meet your organization's precise needs
