And yet again, something is released to the public and it makes it’s rounds on all blogs related to the tech… here’s the latest.  OK, my turn… This is a handy release for those looking for more info on deploying SPS. An area somewhat difficult to tackle for the newly appointed SharePoint admin. Looks fabulous! Notice the reference to how to use the SQL Service Report Pack that was released some time last month.

SharePoint Portal Server 2003 Discovery Kit

The SharePoint Portal Server 2003 Discovery Kit includes a series of discovery labs that go beyond learning about a particular component of SharePoint Portal Server 2003 to understanding how to build a divisional portal site solution, how to deploy Web applications that integrate tightly with the portal site environment, how to use SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services to track and analyze portal site usage, and lastly, how to customize the portal site user interface.

There are 6 labs in the SharePoint Portal Server 2003 Discovery Kit. The lab manuals includes a description of the business scenario that is addressed by the lab, the teaching objectives of the lab, step-by-step instructions, dependencies for each lab and the expected amount of time needed for the lab assuming a basic familiarity with Windows SharePoint Services and limited SharePoint Portal Server 2003 experience.
