Tulsa TechFest, Day One

I arrived a bit late in the morning and missed the opening Keynote on Silverlight by Jason Zander and Sean Alexander. The SharePoint track started with Richard Oltmann from OakTree Software. His topic was "Preparing for SharePoint 2007", which primarily covered planning for a new SharePoint deployment. This is a really good topic and I […]

Creating a Custom Meeting Workspace Site Definition

Heather Solomon posted an article recently regarding the difficulties of customizing the Meeting Workspace templates.  I agree with Heather that there is really only one reliable way to do this with any level of automation –a custom Site Definition.  Not too terribly difficult but if you’ve never done it the process can be a bit daunting.  So here’s […]

Flame and Ye Shall Be Flamed in Return

I was all geared up to author a scathing respone to this ridiculous post but I was struggling with some way to write it without using the words ‘idiot’, ‘imbecile’ and ‘moron’ all in the same sentence.  Sometimes, I just can’t get beyond the urge to reach through my computer and slap the bejeezus out […]

Fancy a Pint, Vegas Style?

Now this is right up my alley.  Andrew Connell has wisely offered to arrange an after-conference get together at the Coral Reef Lounge in the Mandalay Bay Hotel on Tuesday, November 6th from 6-8PM.  If you are planning to attend the SharePoint Connections conference in Las Vegas, you absolutely must stop by and hang out.  […]

BinaryWave is Hiring Sales Engineers in the UK

Wow, what a year it’s been.  Business is booming both in the States and the UK.  So much so that we need additional sales-oriented staff to help manage customer opportunities throughout England, Scotland, and Ireland.   If you are a customer-oriented sales engineer type with solid SharePoint experience who is comfortable interfacing with both business managers and developers, then […]

SharePoint Licensing Links

Perhaps the greatest area of confusion we encounter on a daily basis is the topic of SharePoint licensing.  End users don’t understand it, VAR’s have a hard time explaining it, and even Microsofties get lost in MOSS Licensing Land from time to time.  Here are some links to help sort things out.   Microsoft Links: […]

Using Features to Deploy Web Part Pages in WSS

I recently had a requirement to duplicate (at least in part) the publishing architecture of MOSS using WSS. Specifically, the user wanted to be able to deploy web part pages to a specific document library when a new site was provisioned and add web parts to those pages automatically. This allows the user to browse […]

Tulsa TechFest 2007

I will be presenting "Building Scalable and Secure Line of Business Applications with SharePoint Server 2007" at the Tulsa TechFest on October 20th, 2007 at 2:30PM.  This is a great conference with tons of content on .NET, SQL, SilverLight, DotNetNuke, AJAX, and lots of other topics.  If you are in the area, make plans to […]

Las Vegas Here We Come!

Join me at SharePoint Connections Las Vegas November 5th – 9th, 2007.  This year’s event is being held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, renowned for Shark Reef, House of Blues, and the best darn skirt steak you’ll find in this hemisphere (Rum Jungle).   There are a ton of great sessions that you absolutely cannot afford […]
