A review of the past

It was in 2007 that I got to know SharePoint and I was very interested in this platform from the very beginning. One year later, in November 2008, exactly 14 years ago, I launched the first Persian SharePoint Community for Persian language SharePoint enthusiasts around the world at pspcommunity.org!

From there, I’ve created my own personal blog and wrote knowledge and experience I gained in my blog. In the beginning, I did not have many visits, but as people became interested in SharePoint, they read my blog more. By 2017, we had nearly 4,000 members in the Persian SharePoint Community, and I wrote about 300 blog posts on my blog in Persian. Even in those years, Microsoft introduced us as the only user group in ME region at the SharePoint conferences. I also setup and hold the first SharePoint conference in Tehran in 2012!

Since then, I have learned a lot from many SharePoint experts and MVPs in the world, such as: Joel OlesonWictor WilenTobias ZimmergrenKanwal KhippleRichard HarbridgeBob FoxSpencer HarbarAC,  and… At that time Dave Pae was the Microsoft SharePoint product manager. 🙂

In 2017, I decided to change the site platform from Community Server to WordPress. Therefore, I also changed the domain to MicrosoftCommunity.ir and I worked hardly to transfer all the content of blogs (We had 20+ bloggers), Forum QA, and users’ information (5000 members) to the new platform.

In 2019 I worked on a new idea, and in 2020 during the Covid pandemic, I launched SPAdminWiki.com as a place for SharePoint administrators with a lot of information and I decided to publish my experiences on this site. This site is now active and accessible through the mentioned link.

Since 2018, due to my work and personal business, I did not manage to publish a new post on my old blog, and it remained silent. 
In 2021, I immigrated to Canada and I have been working as a SharePoint, Power Platform and Microsoft 365 developer at Spot Solutions in Vancouver. and today, after 4 years, I decided to continue blogging again, of course with covering more topics in English. 😉 There are many things that I would like to publish, and I will try to keep this blog updated. The areas that I will cover in my blog will be SharePoint, Power Platform and Microsoft 365.

In next posts, I will share the specialized content with you.

Knowledge sharing is my job! I love community contributions!
