Sharepoint Suggestions

I do not have much experience in SharePoint 2010.

Been given a task to populate a sharepoint page that will be used for Internal Communication within our I.T. Group. I want to start small. Maybe just 4 or 5 things for right now.

Announcements for our group

Setup something that will list people in our group along with their skills and systems they support.

Setup something that will show who is working on what projects.

Calendar showing planned days off (vacations, conferences etc..)
Calendar showing who is on call

Documents Library (contain documents that pertain to our group)
Forms Library (contain forms that pertain to our group)

Blog (maybe create a blog, would that aid in communication ?)

Has anyone done something similar and could show me what they have done.
I just need to visually see what this might look like and if you have better suggestions on what comprises Internal Communications.

I thing I can create above in Sharepoint just need some suggestions on how best to  handle

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You should first deside what kind of environment you can manage i.e Windows/HDD/RAM/Network etcs.

Depending on that you can choose which version of SharePoint is best supports your need.

Most of the sharepoint version which are available for free can full fill what you mentioned above


Microsoft SharePoint foundation 2010
Microsoft SharePoint foundation 2013

So its your currently upon you to deside how you want to move forward.
