A presentation I did together with my colleague Anders Ganes at Norwegian Developers Conference 2011 (NDC2011).
SharePoint 2010 was chosen as the platform for the new public website for The Norwegian Defense , www.forsvaret.no, as one of the first large scale web sites built upon SharePoint 2010 for Internet Sites worldwide. By choosing SharePoint 2010 as a platform you get a powerful and feature rich foundation, but there are also some concerns. DIFI (Agency for Public Management and eGovernment) has defined many requirements that public websites have to fulfill. Soon, these requirements will also apply to all Norwegian websites. In this talk we will discuss how SharePoint 2010 fulfills these requirements. This also includes a closer look at SharePoint in regard to usability, how SharePoint 2010 relates to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and what issues and experiences we have made related to these topics. We will also share our experiences with SharePoint as a large–scale Content Management System for Internet solutions, issues that has been dealt with as well as workarounds and solutions.
