You know by now that the cloud is hot and Microsoft says “we’re all in.”  That being said, there has never been a better time to push all of those chips forward and  jump on the bandwagon.  It’s time to get some experience with SharePoint Online / Office 365.  I know most people don’t have access to the Office 365 beta yet, but when it opens up, you should sign up for the public beta and start getting familiar with it.  If you haven’t seen SharePoint Online yet, check our my previous article which gives a quick tour of it.  I plan to write more about SharePoint Online in the future, so I figured the best place to start is with an introductory development article on building and deploying a web part.  My past series on building and deploying web parts to 2010 and 2007 are still the most popular articles on DotNetMafia.com.  Let’s take what we learned there and see ho...

Feature Versioning and Upgrades in SharePoint 2010

Sharepoint on Ulitzer One new feature in SharePoint 2010 is the ability to version and upgrade features.  I haven’t seen a lot of people talking about it yet, so I thought I would take a few minutes to talk about it today.   It’s an interesting new feature and I’ll be curious to see how much people use it and when.  The versioning aspect of features is interesting, but specifically what we’ll be talking about today are what kinds of things we can do when we perform a feature upgrade.  Unfortunately, by the time you read all of this, it will probably leave you with more questio...

Complete Surface Pro 3 Review - 3 days later

While I have always been a die hard fan of my Surface 2 and Surface RT, when the Surface Pro 3 was announced I was pretty excited.  As someone that travels a lot, I question every item that goes into my bag.  I am done with carrying around an 8 pound Lenovo W520.  With the shift of SharePoint to the cloud with Office 365, I hardly ever need to run a local virtual machine any more.  I found I could get a lot done on the road with my Surface 2.  It has all the Office applications I need plus runs a variety of apps.  However, the once place I had issues is when I needed to use a pro...

Enabling Content Approval on a List Using CAML

I’ve always liked the power of CAML because it allows me to create so much in SharePoint without ever having to write a line of code.  However, there really isn’t enough examples out there, so I like writing posts like these that focus on doing something very specific with a list.  @SPKyle would say just write some code to do that, but that’s not my style, so I did some digging through the SDK and some experimentation and I figured out how to do it.  Of course there isn’t an attribute called EnableContentApproval.  So, the first thing we have to figure out is what CAML calls cont...

Will Virtualization Die in SharePoint 2010 Development?

SharePoint on Ulitzer This is already starting to be an interesting topic, so I wanted to post about it.  We’ll start with the facts. SharePoint 2010 only runs on 64 bit operating systems In the past, SharePoint developers have pretty much always had to develop in a virtual environment Windows Virtual PC does not support 64 bit guests but other non-Microsoft virtualization technologies do SharePoint 2010 can run on Windows 7 / Vista x64 Most developers do not want to run a server OS on their development machine Some developers may still be running 32 bit operating systems (ack!) ...
