Happy Birthday, SharePoint!

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.

Microsoft’s Tahoe is ‘too lightweight’

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.
