My IT department has just installed SharePoint Server 2010 and SQL Server 2008 Standard in a new virtual server for me to start learning.
They did sofware installation only, and left it for me to configure it. So I'm connecting in via Remote Desktop and ready to develop (having come from MOSS 2007)
So before setting up my first Web App and Parent Level Site which I have never done yet in 2010 Central Admin, are there other Central Admin configs I should do?
Basically, what's the best practice for getting SharePoint ready so I can starting playing with it?
