In addition, a Live Guide feature connects  developers and in-house SharePoint experts to facilitate ongoing support  and grading of assignments.

“With over 100M users and $1B in revenue for Microsoft, SharePoint is  the understated giant of Microsoft’s enterprise collaboration  strategy”, said Francis McKeagney, InnerWorkings CEO. “As a server-based  technology, SharePoint presents significant challenges to organizations  wishing to provide deep, hands-on training to their software teams. We  are really excited that our new offering addresses this issue in a  rigorous and compelling way. The virtual lab capability, in particular,  allows for deep learning in both generic and customizable setups. We are  delighted to partner with USPJA to deliver such a comprehensive  enterprise learning solution for SharePoint development teams. USPJA’s  knowledge and expertise has made this offering possible.”
