  • Book Review-The Great Evangelical Recession

    Not Fit For Print - Robert Bogue [MVP]
    Robert Bogue
    23 Jun 2015 | 12:23 pm
    Too many folks I know have decided that the world is going "to hell and a handbasket." I for one am intrigued by the term and the idea that after centuries of human progress we're suddenly plunging towards our demise as a society in what amount to the blink of an eye. Rarely does a week go by when I don't hear about another family torn apart because they don't eat dinner together. Perhaps it's the growth of the Internet. Maybe people are texting too much. Maybe we're not connecting with each other as much socially as was pointed out in the book Bowling Alone. It's in this context…

    I set out on a mission a few weeks back to discover a better way to make our materials available to students.  This was prompted by a student in one class remarking that if we're "..going to use digital materials, then you need to go all the way".  I'm probably paraphrasing but that's what keeps ringing in my head!

    I work from a home office where I've got a slick 3-monitor setup... three 27" monitors, two sitting horizontal at 2560x1440 and one sitting vertical at 1080x1920 in the middle (by the way, a center vertical monitor is awesome for coding). All this is run off the two Thunderbolt & single HDMI ports on my MacBook Pro (late 2013): I've become so dependent on this setup that when I travel or work outside of my office, I avoid some tasks when I don't have a second monitor. However, lately I've adopted an awesome 2nd monitor solution for my laptop that doesn't require much extra stuff. When I…

  • PowerShell Direct - Simplified SharePoint Management Shell?

    1 Jun 2015 | 6:00 am
    One particular feature of Server 2016 that is announced is PowerShell Direct.  Take a look at this article from the Microsoft Virtualization blog.  The short version is that it will allow the Hyper-V host to PowerShell directly to the guest operating systems. This could lead to some very interesting scenarios.The first possible use, given by Microsoft themselves, is to use the shell to configure guest servers from the host using scripts. This should allow you to have a fairly standard set of features or roles defined in a PowerShell script.  The…

  • Combining Dynamics CRM Online and Power BI Preview

    I am a strong believer of the concept of “in-context analytics” and as I outlined in Mindful apps – putting people at the center supported by data I consider analytics and business intelligence to be essential in providing business value. So I was quite interested when I first learned about the Power BI preview with it’s built in support Dynamics CRM Online  (For a great write up about it check out Previewing the New Power BI Experience with Dynamics CRM). When I started playing around with it I was surprised that it seemed to do things quite differently from Power BI for Office…
  • Getting to grips with Dynamics CRM releases, updates and build numbers

    Since a couple of weeks I have been working with Dynamics CRM. One of the things which is always challenging when starting to learn a new product is getting to understand the different versions and the changes between versions. When Microsoft was still on a 3-year release cycle for their products, this was quite easy to understand but most Microsoft products are now on a more much more frequent release schedule and Dynamics CRM is no exception. Updates and improvements to Dynamics CRM are released twice a year – in what is commonly referred to as the spring and fall release – see…

  • Implementing AD integration with Office 365 using a sub-domain (for dev/test)

    Chris O'Brien
    17 Jun 2015 | 3:17 am
    As discussed in Challenges in Office 365 development – and how to address them, it’s fairly common to create multiple Office 365 tenancies to get around the fact that there’s currently no such thing as a “test environment” in Office 365. However, as the previous post discusses in detail, it’s certainly true to say that some trade-offs come with this method, generally related to environmental differences, code issues, testing, Application Lifecycle Management and so on. This article series attempts to provide some options and techniques which might be useful: Challenges in Office…

    If you've been reading my blog over the last several years you know that I've got a ton of technical posts including posts about both infrastructure issues (like claims, Kerberos, and performance) as well as development concerns. However, lately I've left the technical blog posts to some of my contemporaries.

    Rarely do I read a book that increases my level of anxiety. Rarely am I so conflicted by a message that I decide to skip the process of writing a blog post for it. You see, writing these blog posts are a part of my process for understanding and incorporating what I read into my consciousness. I purposefully broke that process in early 2013 when I didn't write my post about The Marketing of Evil. The fundamental premise of the book is that we're being manipulated as a culture to a different set of values. Two years after having read the book I don't know that I've reached a conclusion as to…

There's been more than a few worship services that I've supported over the years where I've been doing the mixing. However, I've never considered it to be a gift of mine. Experience has taught me how to use some tools to make things sound better and how to keep myself out of trouble.

I followed that with a post in February 2009 with my Tele-Prompter-Scope (which I just retired from the studio). I've made incremental improvements in the studio since 2009 but many of the improvements had been evolutionary rather than revolutionary. However, the most recent set of upgrades are much more radical and as a result they really warranted some discussion. What's The Use? Before talking about the upgrades it's important…

    11 Jun 2015 | 10:04 am
    2015 has been a year when suddenly SharePoint has again gone BOOM!! I'm still trying to understand quite why. It has unexpectedly fought back against Google Docs. Maybe I shouldn't write that on a Blog that is hosted on Google Blogger. Last year, I had my doubts (my sleepless nights, not only about Paul Lambert's tactics) that SharePoint was going to survive. So many organisations were looking at Open Source alternatives and seemingly moving away from Microsoft's SharePoint. We considered for the first time that Action SharePoint Limited (trading as Office Talk) might have to diversify and…

    Happy New Year to you all and let’s hope that 2015 is a great year for both SharePoint and Aston Villa. More about my hopes for ‘The Villa’ later, but first to SharePoint in all the various forms. In the last twelve months the SharePoint projects I have worked on have included; SharePoint 2007, SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013. Not only that, I have been involved in server side SharePoint and cloud-based SharePoint. So many different varieties, but all pretty similar and with the same challenges. As we reached the end of 2014 (where are all the years going?) more and more companies…
  • Office 365 Rejuvenates SharePoint

    Andy Dale
    5 Sep 2014 | 8:52 am
    Apologies that it is four months since my last SharePoint blog, but my passion for SharePoint has now be reinvigorated (big word for a Villa fan) by the sudden phenomenal explosion of SharePoint in the UK. It would be easy to blame my lack of blogging on the poor performances of Aston Villa, the UK recession or being regularly stuck on the M25, but I think the real reason is I just got bored of SharePoint. I had been a SharePoint fan since my first exposure to the joys of Document Management Systems at Chemical Site in Wolverhampton back in 2002. For years I rode the SharePoint bandwagon and…

    Even after working with SharePoint for over ten years I still find myself learning new things. So in today's blog (yes, I know first one for six months. See Official Apology at the end) I will reveal five tricks that I have recently discovered. Versions of SharePoint come and go, but they don't basically change that much. Ok the way t looks might change and new features are added but behind the scenes it is all still pretty similar. All of these tricks work from 2010 onwards and most of them in 2007 also. So here are my SharePoint Famous Five 1. Add a print form option to any list item i)…

  • Review: WP BackitUp for WordPress

    Jeremy Thake
    14 Jun 2015 | 10:31 am
    I was originally hosting my WordPress blog on Azure web sites using ClearDB to host the MySQL instance. I found that as my blog got more visitors I was getting database connection issues where I was going over the amount of connections for the subscription I was on. I wasn’t willing to pay $50 a month for the next subscription up. Turning on all the caching wasn’t helping me. I had two decisions to make…where to host my blog and how to get it there. After recommendations from a few friends I chose SiteGround.com. For $7.95 a month I got the full WordPress as a service…

Dan Holme is a very close friend of mine and has rounded up a great team of folks running the developer content in Scot Hillier, Andrew Connell and Todd Baginski. They asked me to be part of the Keynote on Wednesday where I’ll have a candid discussion with Scot on the extensibility of Office 365. You can see all the IT Unity sessions here on their site.

  • Office 365 ‘App Model’ rename cheat sheet

    Jeremy Thake
    5 Jun 2015 | 9:54 am
    There have been a few threads on the different social networks around the rename of the “App Model” to “Add-in Model” for Office 365. There were actually quite a few reasons that we pushed this rename through and it wasn’t something that was decided quickly. The major one was that with our multi-platform support of our Office client across the Windows desktop, Mac desktop, browser, iOS, Android and Windows 10 environments . Most of these environments call our Office client “apps”, and so having “apps” within “apps” was causing…

    One mystery in ASP.NET 5 that people are asking me about are ASP.NET 5  console applications. We have web applications running on some web server – what is the point of new type of command-line applications that refer by name to web framework? Here’s my explanation.

Yes, your application can specify exact version of CLR it needs to run and it doesn’t conflict with another versions of CLR on same box. DNX runtime – formerly named as K…

    Although ASP.NET MVC has been here for years the discussion about fat and thin controllers continues. There are guys who have strong faith in fat controllers and guys who believe more in thin controllers. Having seen both types of controllers and worked on them in practice I wrote this post to share my experiences with you. What is fat controller? First let’s agree on what is fat controller. I want to include here also some exceptional cases so there’s no chance you start fixing fat controllers with wrong medicines. Controller can be fat three different ways: there is a lot of code that…

    Last week was my first time to be a speaker at Techorama, Belgium. It’s not a big and massive event like Build or Ignite but it’s still pretty big for Europe, I think. And it’s challenging for speakers as line-up is very strong. Really, it’s not kids game. Here is my short overview of Techorama and if you want to get quick answer then yes, for sure get there next year! It was a little bit more than half of year ago when I contacted Belgium MVP-s and I asked them about speaking challenges in their area.

Currently it only shows the last update from last week. Good job Microsoft. No one would be happier than me if this messaging is getting better and I don't have to write these boring blog posts…

The WPSC (Web Part Page Services Component) is a JavaScript library that web parts use to communicate with each other client-side. We don’t feel the WPSC used that often nowadays (if that ever was the case), so maybe that explains why we couldn’t find that much info about this problem.

    Recently, we experienced a weird problem in MSIE 9 where select boxes kept closing themselves when hovering over them, in later browsers we didn’t experience this issue. It turned out that this was caused by multiple CSS selectors pertaining to font families defined in different CSS files which were targeting the same select box. Both CSS files did something like: select {font-family:’Avenir LT W01 85 Heavy';} Removing one of them solved the issue, and allegedly this should do the trick too: select option {font-family:’Avenir LT W01 85 Heavy';} This is described in more…

    A website that reacts to the screen size of a device by delivering a suitable output is thought to be a responsive design. Rather than designing several websites for different screen resolutions, responsive design will enable you to design one website that specifies how it should appear on various devices. It is estimated that by the end of 2015 more people will be using mobile devices to access the Internet than desktop computers, hence mobile devices accessibility has become a huge priority for web developers. There is no doubt that responsive design is now unanimously accepted as the way…

  • Knockout Validation: Check if value is in range

    Admin
    20 Jun 2015 | 6:10 pm
        To validate a model and its properties (observable and ordinary ones) we use such knockout.js plugin as Knockout Validation. This validation library is simple and easy to extend. For example, a new validation rule to check if value is in range could be as simple as the following: import ko = require("knockout"); import validation = require("knockout.validation"); ... export function enableCustomValidators() { validation.rules['inRange'] = { validator: function (val, params) { var minVal = ko.validation.utils.getValue(params.min); var maxVal =…
  • Select2: jqModal + Select2 = can’t type in

    Admin
    9 Jun 2015 | 10:31 pm
        The Select2 control placed in the jqModal modal dialog doesn’t allow typing anything in. It’s unexpected, but explainable: jqModal eliminates all keypress and keydown events coming from without, i.e. coming from the controls not residing in the jqModal container. As I mentioned in the Select2: Make dropdown vertically wider, the Select2, in turn, dynamically appends the elements making up the dropdown (including the type-ahead search box) to the Body-tag, so they are literally out of jqModal dialog. Where the contracted jqModal markup resembles the…
  • Select2: Make dropdown vertically wider

    Admin
    31 May 2015 | 9:55 pm
        The Select2 is a quite useful and fancy replacement for ordinary Html Selects. Having a fixed number of items available to pick, you may want to make the dropdown of a Select2 control vertically wider to avoid extra scrolling. Where the Select2 control is defined as follows <select name="criteria" id="criteria"> <option value="">Select a Search Criteria</option> <option value="Product">Product</option> <option value="Producer">Producer</option> <option…
  • Oracle: How to pass empty associative array to Stored Procedure

    Admin
    19 Aug 2014 | 8:27 pm
        One of the possible ways to pass a collection of values to a stored procedure is to use Associative Array (also known as Index-By Tables). For example, the declaration of the stored procedure accepting array of strings may resemble the following: TYPE str_table_type IS TABLE OF VARCHAR2(255) INDEX BY PLS_INTEGER; PROCEDURE Save_Something ( p_str_array IN str_table_type, ... p_MSG_OUT OUT VARCHAR2 ); To call such stored procedure we need to create and properly fill out the p_str_array parameter. The code doing that may look like shown below: // create the parameter. //…
  • SharePoint: Resolve user through the particular Membership Provider

    Admin
    27 Apr 2014 | 9:53 pm
        We developed a few SharePoint-based applications comprised of two parts: internal and public. The internal one is accessible for Domain users only, while the public one points to the Internet and virtually available for everyone. Each of the applications uses the Claims Based Authentication and is extended to have two zones: the Default zone represents the internal part, while the Internet zone is for the public one. The Claims Based Authentication of the Default and Internet zones operates over the NTLM Integrated Windows Authentication and the Forms Based…

    Office 365 feature comparison chart all plans (All in one Place)   ‘ This is an updated version of a popular blogpost that I posted in January 2013. It turned out to be one of the most visited posts and it still is (This one). This time I have updated the feature comparison list to show what is included in the different Office 365 plans and subscription levels that are available. It is not easy to find the information when you are looking to buy just the right plan for your organization. My primary goal with this post is to again make it just a little bit easier to find what…
  • Office 365 News – First release for select users

    Thomas Balkeståhl
    31 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    First release can now be offered to a select group of users! (Including a funny mistake by a Microsoft developer) ‘ Life made even simpler for the admins First release has until now been something that you do not want to enable in a production tenant for the organization, because the impact can be to big with untested changes and additions made regularly. The common option for the administrator thirsting for knowledge has been to create an evaluation tenant and enable First Release there. Cumbersome and difficult…is what that was! A drawback has also been that you could not test…

    Try out Sway in your First Release tenant now Ok, if you want to try out Sway within your organization, here it is. It popped up on the App Launcher just the other day. (You can use this URL: https://sway.com/?o365=true and then sign in with your organizational account) It is a preview, not fully operational yet but as many of you have seen, it works remarkably well! Microsoft uses Sway in a lot of their presentations and they look great I can give you a great example, at Ignite, Mark Kashman held a session the last day where he recapped all SharePoint content during the Conference in a…

    Yeey! right-click is here for SharePoint Online AND OneDrive for Business (but…) ‘ ” Recently, right-click functionality was introduced in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business both, it really is a great feature that simplifies the lives of all users. I will show in Pictures what I mean, no more ‘three dots’ or select and then ‘three dots’ again. Now, with right-click, we can easily access the properties and functions to manage a file or folder simply by right-clicking on it. (I assume though, that the dots and More will be left in Place, not…

  • Verifying your Domain Name with Office365 starring NSLOOKUP

    Geoff Evelyn
    30 Jun 2015 | 3:50 am
    Had some fun trying to get a domain validated with Office365. Here’s the issue. When going for validation, you will be given instructions on setting a TXT or MX record and will be given a validation code to enter with your provider. If the provider given on the page is not yours you could then take a look at the help screen that gives more details and step by step instructions. However, it is difficult to ascertain whether the TXT record has been set. NSLOOKUP comes to the rescue: Bring up a Command Prompt​ Enter NSLOOKUP <PRESS RETURN> type set q=txt <PRESS RETURN>…
  • Office 365 Public Roadmap is a key service delivery tool

    Geoff Evelyn
    5 May 2015 | 5:51 am
    Being an Office 365 administrator is challenging. Simply being on top of the changes in Office365 would be difficult in the extreme, simply because you may need to feed into more than one client, and trying to pass information directly to them in their form may be challenging. The key focus of service delivery is repeatability; the attempt to apply one solution for all as a generic standpoint. One of the key tools for Office 365 is the Public Roadmap, which I use to show clients and customers what is happening in the world of Office 365 and how quickly the information can be obtained. The…

  • Understanding Training Options around SharePoint…

    24 Feb 2015 | 7:25 am
    Welcome to an article which goes into the land of SharePoint Training. This attempts to examine various levels of training and how they can and are being mapped to SharePoint information workers, irrespective of whether they are SharePoint on-premise, or SharePoint through Office365. Please note, that whilst I go into some detail on training delivery that I am not a SharePoint Trainer; however, I think I’ve got enough experience through the implementation of SharePoint Training strategies for many organizations, so I suppose I’ve got some points that may be useful either to you as…
