Happy Birthday, SharePoint!25 Mar 2021 | News
SharePoint turns 20 this year! From Tahoe to SharePoint Online and Server vNext, SharePoint is an amazing platform with many possibilities.
I recall when I started working with SharePoint in Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 roughly around 2003-2004. WSSv2 was neat for what it was back then, a web-based repository for content wasn’t as common place as it is today with not only SharePoint, but Box, Dropbox, and many more. SharePoint continues to be a leader in this space while continually evolving at a more and more rapid pace – from Modern UI, SPFx, Microsoft Lists, to Viva Topics.
If you’re interested in reading some thoughts around the original release of SharePoint, codenamed Tahoe, I found a great article that provided impressions which haven’t aged too well.
And perhaps it was for it’s time, but we’re well past that point.
There will be a big celebration this Saturday, March 27th. Come join members of the product group, MVPs, and some awesome speakers! You can register on EventBrite at https://www.sharepointbirthday.com.
Coincidentally, my favorite OS, macOS (OS X) turned 20 yesterday.
