If you’ve been on the SharePoint scene for a long time (meaning you remember when we started speculating about what turned out to be SharePoint 2010), you’ may remember the SharePoint Beagle. For all you others, or if you didn’t pay attention, here’s a brief overview.
The SharePoint Beagle was the largest SharePoint newsletter in the world, and has had more than 60,000 readers over the years. The newsletter was run by Bob Mixon, one of the longest running SharePoint MVPs and an absolute guru when it comes to information architecture. The Beagle contained content from the community as well as Bob himself.
Sadly, though, due to personal circumstances, Bob was unable to keep the Beagle running, and it’s been over a year since the last issue.
The good news is that since Bob joined thefaculty, we’ve been talking about bringing the Beagle back from its dormant state. And I’m happy to say that we’ve now decided that the Beagle definitely should return as part of the USPJA platform.
There is still a lot of details we need to decide and reveal to you, but the following things are clear already:
- The SharePoint Beagle will remain free
- Bob Mixon will return as the editor
- The USPJA faculty will contribute articles and content
- We will invite the community to participate as well
The first issue of the Beagle will contain a very cool surprise as well, although I won’t reveal exactly what.
You can sign up to get the Beagle now, and the first issue will be released within a few weeks.
