Oh, more cats out of the bag. A veritable flock of cats, it seems.
I am currently in the process of writing a new book, on the topic of SharePoint user experience customization. The book will be a deeper technical dive into the architecture of SharePoint and explore how to create richer and more customized experiences for the user. Not visual design, no, I am past my Photoshop days. This will be hard-core development, XML, .Net, CAML. It will be similar to, but more exhaustive than the articles I am writing for SharePoint Magazine. Which will come out soon, I promise!
More details will be released later, but I am in the closing contract stages with a major publisher and I should be able to reveal more soon.
In the meantime, however, I can now reveal another little secret. As you know I have been working for a while to find a new blogging solution. One specific purpose was to find a solution that I can use to put up a web site to support the book. The new solution, soon to be launched, will primarily be a place to keep the dialog with readers up to and after the launch of the book. I will also be posting competitions where you can get signed editions of the book and win other great prices. A newsletter will keep you up to date on the progress as well as give you tips, inside info, and perhaps some exclusive excerpts before the launch.
The web site should be up in a few days depending on when I can get someone to make me a pretty design. I will post more when that is available.
