Finally, article series on customizing the SharePoint User Experience is online

It took some time, but finally the first article in the series ‘Customizing the SharePoint User Experience’ is online.

I have blogged about the series earlier, but needless to say I have been very busy recently with the new book web site. And a bit on the actual writing, as well.

In any case, the article, titled Customizing the user experience: Overview of the default interface (Part 1 of 6) is now out on SharePoint Magazine. The second and third articles are also written, but to keep the suspense we will publish those later.

A few things to note with the articles versus The Book. The articles, while fairly technical, are by no means as exhaustive and deep as The Book will be. If you like the article for its depth you will love The Book. If you like the attempt at humor in the articles then be prepared to laugh out loud when The Book hits the shelves.

Also, several topics will not be covered online at all. While I will keep the outline I posted earlier, I have to put most of my effort and time into writing The deepest and best SharePoint book ever written, and that leaves a bit less time for everything else.

So, while you are all anxiously awaiting the release of The Book you can get a SharePoint Magazine exclusive preview in the article. If you really want to keep up to date, make sure you join my mailing list for the book at

New book blog and web site launched!

The new web site for my upcoming book is now live. The book, tentatively titled ‘Building the SharePoint User Experience’, was announced about a week ago, and I promised to have the web site up in a few days. Here’s to me keeping my promise 🙂

Now, the web site is just launched so I am still working on filling it up with content. A great way for me to do that is through user feedback. If you have questions regarding the book, me, the writing, the content of the book, or anything else, don’t be shy, drop me a line! Mail address is still furuknap<[at]>

I try to respond in person to everyone, but if I happen to miss your call, please let me know and I will respond quickly.

Second thing, I have put up a mailing list on the new site to let you guys get a heads up when there are updates. I will hold periodic competitions to give out cool prizes to the people on the list. Some competitions will be generic but some will require knowledge about SharePoint.

Here’s the sweet deal: The first competition will be held early next week. Get your behinds over to the new site now if you want to participate.

Oh, did I forget to mention? You get to decide what the prize will be, including gift cards from Amazon, a 3-month platinum membership to Audible, a copy of the Age of Conan game by FunCom, and, of course, a signed copy of my book with your choice of (reasonable) signature text.

So, what are you waiting for? Get over to the site, sign up for the mailing list and vote!
