7:15pm "Installing and Running SharePoint 2010 on Windows 8 with SQL 2012" - Nigel Price
In this presentation / demonstration I will show how you can install and run SharePoint 2010 on a Windows 8 Server and use SQL 2012 (also running on a Windows 8 Server) to store the SharePoint databases. Installing SharePoint 2010 on a Windows 8 Server is not as straightforward as you think!
