Overnight the full released version of Office 2010 appeared on the Volume Licensing Service Centre, and I’ve already seen a few comments from people who’ve been busily downloading it.
As well as Office 2010, we’ve also released SharePoint 2010, and I was really chuffed to read a blog post from the team at Twynham School, as they celebrated implementing the final version yesterday. I believe that they are the first school in the world to roll out the released version of SharePoint 2010, and partly this is because they have been involved in our official TAP (Technology Adoption Programme). As Dave Coleman, the Twynham Systems Manager says:
|This has been a long journey for the team at Twynham, as we have been on the TAP programme for SharePoiint 2010 since December 2008 - this means that we have gone through the Alpha, Beta and on to the release candidate and now the RTM.|
Dave’s promised that they are going to make a demonstration site available shortly, so that you can see what they have done with it (which is typical of Twynham’s attitude towards sharing the lessons from their work).
They are also running a free event on
14th May 14th June at our campus in Reading, all about SharePoint 2010, and they and other early adopter schools are talking about their experiences. You can register for the event by emailing Mike Herrity at Twynham School.
