Off to TechEd US 2008

I’m busily trying to wrap up all my loose ends before heading off to Orlando for TechEd US 2008. As usual, I’ll be filing daily reports on the various goings on, both at the show and at all the after-hours functions (see this post for a list of activities). Unfortunately, I will be working the […]

Timer Jobs, Alerts and the Daylight Savings Time Hotfix

Not too long ago I had a problem with MOSS timer jobs delaying execution until an hour after they were created.  I was puzzled, as the farm I was working on was a clean install of slipstreamed SP1.  After some searching, I found the KB941422 post-SP1 hotfix.  The install was no walk in the park […]

What usually starts out as a worthwhile experiment in solving a particular problem with some out-of-the-box thinking quickly mushrooms into […]

SharePoint Development for the Masses

As a consequence of having a fairly high profile in the SharePoint Development community, I get a lot of inquiries from .NET developers, Java programmers, and even some legacy non-OO types, requesting guidance on how to get started in SharePoint development. I wish the answer was as easy as "Go buy this book and you’ll […]
