Hi! I'm Andreas.

Microsoft SharePoint Tutorial for Beginners, Developers, Administrators, End User

What are tutorials? And what can you expect using tutorials?

If you use your favorite search engine and search for a definition of tutorial you will find something like this:

  • Tutorials are one of many methods to transfer knowledge. It’s part of learning.
  • It’s more interactive than a book or lecture.
  • It’s more specific than a book or lecture.
  • Tutorials teach by example.
  • Tutorials help to complete a task.

So a SharePoint Tutorial can contain a set of instructions, a step-by-step guide or tutorials can be an interactive session... it can be:

  • a book,
  • a video or
  • an application

Independently of the method it helps to complete a task or to solve a problem.

Furthermore it is self-paced meaning that a person can learn at their own speed which is quite useful if tutorials are in a different language than your native language.

So it helps people with different skill levels.

If we take the things above and try to create SharePoint Tutorial it would look like this:

  • Title
  • Task
  • Content

Well if this isn’t specific with a huge set of instructions on how to complete the given task... well I don’t know.

The good news is that you can download it.


At this site you will find SharePoint Tutorial providing the structure and the content above. So take a look for yourself if you find one for you...

Why did I write this Guide?

I want to give you the most extensive and helpful guides around SharePoint available today. This resource is full of background knowledge, videos, images and step-by-step guides — to immediately enhance your SharePoint skills, make your work with SharePoint more effective while saving time, saving you a lot of stuggles, headaches and wasted time.

I’ve included everything from planning to doing so you have all the information you need to be more successful while working with SharePoint — all in one place!

Build a strong Foundation

Starting SharePoint can be a great struggle! There are so many blogs you can read but as a beginner how do I know which is the best starting point and most helpful?
When I started back in 2006 there was a huge lack of information. SharePoint was released and there was no documentation or blog solving my problems. Now there are so many resources which are more a blocker than a good start.

Because of that a basic but detailed starting point is needed — and provided with my guides. Start with the things that are most important and that get you up and running. Skip the distracting stuff and add it IF you need it and WHEN you need it.
