I am writing a SharePoint 2010 branding book!!!

Whoa, its been 3 months and no blog posts what gives??? Well I have been very very busy writing my SharePoint 2010 Branding and Customization book!!! I am sorry about no posts lately but I am very excited to say that I am halfway through the book. It has been many of long nights but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. The book is schedule to be published and available around the early part of December of this year 2011. So that will be just in time to order one for a great stocking stuffer!

Here is a simplified TOC from the book.

  1. Introduction to SharePoint 2010 Branding
  2. Overview of UX/Branding Process
  3. Gathering Branding Requirements
  4. Creating the Visual Design
  5. Development Environment Setup
  6. Building the Design
  7. Testing the Visual Build
  8. Tips and Tricks
  9. Tools and Resources
  10. CSS Reference Guide

I want to thank everyone who has continued to follow my blog, and has posted such great comments and questions. I promise that once this book is completed I will continue to blog on this site about all things SharePoint Branding and Design. Once the book is ready, I will be adding the ability to purchase it directly from this blog site.

I will be attending the SharePoint Conference in Anaheim, CA October 3-6,2011. I hope to see you there!

Thanks again and make sure to add me to your RSS feed list.

Nice one.. I'm always referring to you blog for tip s and the such..

I guess you probably already have written it, / or have a fair idea of what you are going to write about.. One pain point I'm currently having is branding the Blog site. Mainly because of the blog.xsl that embed nav widths etc... If you have any tip s for the blog site they would be most appreciated.
