As you progress through your SharePoint career, you may begin to wonder what is going on from the technical perspective. You can be a developer and want to start writing code, or thinking of writing code makes your hair curl. As I have progressed in my SharePoint career and worked with many customers on how to structure their SharePoint support center, I have developed the following illustration to help you understand what level you can currently be and what Which may come to come. Technical Career Path
As you begin to look through the pyramid to see where you might be or aspire to be, allows to break down each slice of the pyramid.
Configuration – often times this will be the introductory level of your SharePoint career and are able to work effectively with the public of business power users. To do this you should be very aware not only what a content type is but details about how to set it up and use it throughout your site collection. This database will lead you to create browser-based workflows and to use all the tools of the SharePoint browser experience to create solutions.
Customization – Now that you have mastered the SharePoint browser experience and your information architecture (content types and list/library structure) has been configured, you are ready to extend SharePoint. Customizing Forms Using the InfoPath Form The SharePoint services or designer for the list or libraries is probably your next step. Within this level of expertise, you begin to leverage the SharePoint Designer and some of the advanced Web parts that SharePoint delivers.
Admin / Developer – This is where you usually reach a fork in the road. It takes a single person to really want to master the administration side of SharePoint (IE become a PowerShell guru and spend time in central administration more than anywhere else) and the development platform (visual IE Studio and Ability to create Web components and custom workflows). This orientation may come from a personal interest or from a commercial need.
Architect – After years of working with everything in SharePoint and having the ability to configure anything using the SharePoint platform, you have the experience and skills to call you and architect. Not only do you have a good understanding of the features and functionality of SharePoint, but you also recommend an approach to others because of performance implications, scalability or knowledge of the recommended thresholds of SharePoint. Architects often have experience in “support” technologies such as being an experienced.NET developer, a system administrator for the domain, or a SQL Server DBA. I have seen many times where this title is misinterpreted as someone who understands the basic functionality of SharePoint. Yes, this is a prerequisite but you must also have a solid understanding of how to get the requirements of business users so that you can apply the appropriate components or technologies to solve the problem.
Like all technologies that are complex the ability to specialize in what interests you most is what will lead not only to personal satisfaction but your success with this chosen technology. Hopefully, this positions you for this success.
How to Become a SharePoint Administrator
If you are interested in finding a job, please contact us. If you are looking for a job or job, and a bit of dissatisfaction with your previous commitments as a web developer using C # and.NET. SharePoint Administrator. Given all these ingredients in your situation, I would recommend the following career:
Keep looking and taking short-term jobs in your current field of expertise, especially if you can get into development projects that involve SharePoint. I guess you need income, so I’m not comfortable telling you to get a SharePoint certification first, then start looking for new jobs. Instead, you will have the opportunity to work as a web designer.
Begin with MCSA certification on Office 365, then start working on your MCSE: SharePoint. This could be a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. As far as I’m concerned, I had a lot of work to do.In the longer term, project management is a great idea for SharePoint administrators. I would recommend starting with the CompTIA Project + certification, which will then be completed by PMI’s Project Management Professional (PMP). Project + should take you two to three months to complete; The PMP generally takes most people at least one (and sometimes two) semester college to complete.
