SharePoint 2007 DVD with Carl Franklin & Sahil Malik

Posted on 12/10/2007 @ 10:55 AM in #Community by | Feedback | 4355 views

I am very pleased to announce that the DVD Carl & I worked so hard on, is finally available for sale.

More details can be found at

This is probably the quickest & best way to come upto speed on SharePoint.


- Books take too long to read, and SharePoint is very clickety pointy, it is a lot quicker and easier to pace it via a Video.

- An in-person trainer, paces for an entire class. It's not like you can pause an in-person trainer, or rewind him.

While I agree that you cannot pause a video and ask the instructor a question, Carl plays that role in the video of constantly interrupting me and asking questions or passing incisive comments.

Also, this needs a laptop or something like that to play the video, whereas a book needs no batteries.

Yes yes I understand. But this still is the quickest way to learn MOSS end to end.


Update: Sample Video and Detailed TOC is now available.

Sound off but keep it civil:

Hi Sahil,

Are there any plans for a downloadable sample, so people can see the audio/video quality? I'm assuming it's great, given that it's produced by the best in the business, but I'm not the one with the money.

Kent -
Yes there will be a sampler. Carl is working on it.
The quality is very good, it's DNRTV'ish quality, but higher rez.

Hi Sahil,

I sent an email to Carl and he informed me that he'll send me a request form for ordering but it's been a while now and Carl is not replying back.

Please get back to me on this.

I just IM'ed Carl your message. He says --
"tell him tomorrow my office admin comes in and she'll send the form"

Thanks Brian - glad you like it. Yes I think Carl's questions and commentary make all the difference.

I know we would appreciate a review once you've had a chance to view the DVDs.

Are there any plans to have separate modules available for purchase?

That is an interesting suggestion. I'll ping Carl, and let us think about it.

Though maybe not in the immediate future, but eventually.

Govdon - I suspect there is something wrong with your computer. Can you try on a different computer?
