Overview:

Microsoft SharePoint 2010 has been in market for over 3 years with over 120 million users. Amazing really. The Microsoft SharePoint 2010 release included a new task list that synchronizes with Microsoft Project, extending the capabilities of both SharePoint and Project to manage work and projects.  Then in January 2013 Microsoft formally released SharePoint 2013.  In this latest release there are an amazing amount of slick new features.
