Ever since I started this blog, and started sharing my SharePoint end user tips, I have realized that there is a strong demand for flexible, client side solutions.
Keeping up with the pace of growth means than I need to become more rigourous and professional. Businesses that rely on my solutions expect more than sample scripts. They expect tools that have been thoroughly tested, and that come with documentation and support. They need clear and easy implementation steps. And they need scalable solutions with regular upgrades.
What it means for me is that I am going to expand and split my online activities. Besides this blog, that I started (and will continue) as a hobby, I’ll start offering packaged products and services that leverage my ideas. This is what I am working on for next year.
I don’t know yet how I’ll make this happen, but it is clear for me that it will be through partnerships with active members of the SharePoint community, with people who like me truly believe that SharePoint makes a difference. In my next post I’ll outline some ideas, if you are interested please talk to me!
To make things clear, this blog is not going away. My commitment is to continue sharing here my sample code and ideas in 2010, at the same pace as in 2009! I am also considering starting a second blog, where I’ll share Web design tips that are not directly related to SharePoint (jQuery, AJAX, SEO, etc.).
