The stakes have never been higher for these age old enemies as they battle for SharePoint 2010 supremacy in this no holds barred, grudge match. In SharePoint 2007, the admin blocked every attempt to deploy code, resulting in a decisive victory over dev. Dev, now leaner and stronger, is hungry and eagerly awaits this rematch on the SharePoint 2010 card. Fans wont be disappointed as these old rivals duke it out in this epic battle.
