Each year I sit down to write my year-in-review piece, and I’m consistently amazed by the changes that take place both from a technological and community perspective in 365 days. To me, one of the idiosyncrasies of the SharePoint world is that, for a platform that takes an incredibly long time to strategically plan, implement and support, the eco-system is always changing, scrambling to push the limits.
To me, one of the most exciting parts of SharePoint is the community. I think most would struggle to name another technology that can support the events pushed out by the SharePoint community. From conferences to webinars, articles to tweets, the SharePoint world is thriving with more and more content being produced and consumed each year. Furthermore, Microsoft has pushed out more tools, features and products that have continued to impress, such as Office for iPad, Office 365 Video and Sway. Here were some of the highlights in 2014, and a few hints at what’s to come in 2015 and beyond.
