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 proprietary VPN to connect to a client.  Although Windows 8.1 has made great strides in this area, most companies don't upgrade their VPN servers very often so I have yet to get the native VPN support to work anywhere.  I need a device that I can use like a laptop while still meeting my tablet ...

First look at Windows 10 Technical Preview on the Surface Pro 3

With the new of the release of Windows 10 Technical Preview, I was quick to download it and try it out.  Despite all of the warning about only using this on a secondary PC, I went ahead and installed it any way on my favorite device the Surface Pro 3.  I have a long standing history of installing beta operating systems on computers I shouldn’t, so why should this one be any different. :)  The nice thing about Windows 10 installer is that it will let you install on existing Windows 8.1 installations.  You can even do other things in the background while it is installing (although ...

New branding and publishing content on Office 365 demo sites

As a partner, you have access to MicrosoftOfficeDemos.com, where you can provision a free Office 365 tenant good for 90 days.  If you aren't familiar with these demo sites in SharePoint Online, they come packed with demo content to demonstrate various Intranet scenarios.  All you need is a Live ID associated with your organization's partner record.  If you are a Microsoft partner and don't have your Live ID associated, the person that manages your partnership in your company can help get you associated. What I love about these demo sites is that they are constantly being updated... (more)

Intro to Querying Lists with REST and ListData.svc in SharePoint 2010

SharePoint Archiving Journal on Ulitzer What I really like about SharePoint 2010 is all of the new ways we can get at list data.  You can always use the Client Object Model, Linq to SharePoint, or the existing object model, but one neat new way to get at list data is with listdata.svc.  ListData.svc provides a way of getting information from a list (or lists using joins) using REST.  What you end up with is a nice RSS feed of list data, that you can consume with whatever client you would like.  You can construct URLs in various manners to get specific records, do joins, or perfo...

How to: Create an OpenSearch Provider for SharePoint

A while back, Kevin Williams pointed out to me that certain web sites could be searched in Google Chrome using the syntax query in the address bar.  For example, once I have been to youtube.com, I can later type in youtube to initiate a search query. Pressing tab, give you a spot to enter your query or you can just type a space and put in your keyword. As someone that does a lot of work with SharePoint Enterprise Search, this got me thinking.  I want my SharePoint site to show up in my browser too.  I did some research and discovered this is part of OpenSearch and that I c...
