Course Overview
Welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Matthew McDermott and welcome to my course, Upgrading Your Farm to SharePoint 2016. I'm a SharePoint and Office 365 consultant for Aptillon, Incorporated and I've been working with and upgrading SharePoint for over 13 years. In that time I've learned the hard way what it takes to help my clients prepare for and execute successful SharePoint upgrades. Did you know that the out-of-the-box SharePoint tools do very little to prepare you for an upgrade? Sure, they check for four common causes of upgrade failure, but they don't look for a whole slew of other problems that are common on nearly every farm on the planet. In this course you're going to learn what it takes to plan and execute a successful SharePoint 2013 to 2016 upgrade. You'll learn how to identify a good upgrade candidate, how to plan and prepare for an upgrade starting today, and how to conduct a farm survey with professional results that you will love to share. You'll also learn how to upgrade service applications and content databases. By the end of the course, you'll have the skills, knowledge, and confidence to perform your own upgrade to SharePoint 2016. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with administering SharePoint, SQL Server, and using PowerShell cmdlets. We're going to be using a lot of PowerShell, so if it's not your strength you should review PowerShell: Getting Started and Using Windows PowerShell with SharePoint 2010 and 2013. Brush up on your SQL skills with SQL Server 2012 Database Administration. I hope you'll join me on this journey from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2016 with my course, Upgrading Your Farm to SharePoint 2016 at Pluralsight.
