Michael Van Cleave Traveling the technical world, learning the language
Although it is late notice, I thought I would put up a plug for a free webinar. SharePoint MVP Paul Stork and I are presenting on Best Practices for SharePoint 2010 Public Facing Sites. I would love to go in to all of the topics on this post, but it would be easier if you just joined the webinar. Heck, it is free! Check it out here. Hope to see you ......

What does SharePoint Composer, an IPad, and a Halo Reach Xbox 360 bundle have in common? The 2010 SharePoint Composer Giveaway! ShareSquared is hosting a giveaway that has some terrific prizes. We have used this same giveaway at the last few technical conferences and it is about to close. Generally, we are giving you the ability to get in on the action ......

Right when you thought it was safe to head in to the holiday season without more SharePoint things to populate your calendar. That is right; ShareSquared is putting on another spectacular SharePoint 2010 webinar. This time Chris Riley (of Enterprise Content Management and Capture fame) and Chris Givens (of Architecting Connected Systems fame) will be ......

After much anticipation, ShareSquared, Inc has finally released SharePoint Composer and Maestro. We have finally have made it available for purchase to the public. Internally ShareSquared consultants have been using it with our clients for a while now. These products are going to make any SharePoint implementation go smoother. If you are not familiar ......

The other evening I had the unfortunate pleasure of having to rebuild a client's SharePoint farm. Generally, SharePoint is not unstable. Unfortunately, the original consultant built the farm with one service account, which made things dicey. Murphy, of some strange law fame, stepped in and presented a situation in which that service account password ......

Well now that SharePoint 2010 has successfully launched and everyone is scratching for every piece of best practices information they can get their hands on, I would like to invite anyone and everyone to come and take part in ShareSquared's next webinar. The webinar will cover some key information such as: Pros and cons of the different approaches to ......

The other evening an article on the Red Tap Chronicles caught my eye. The article written by Bob Sullivan titled "The Constitutional Issues of Cloud Computing" was very interesting in regards to the direction most of the technical world is going. We all have been inundated about utilizing cloud computing for reasons of price, availability, or even scalability; ......

So recently I have had to make the transition from the SharePoint 2007 codebase to SharePoint 2010 codebase. Needless to say there hasn't been much difficulty in the changeover. However in a set of code that I was playing around with and transitioning I did find one change that might cause some pain to others out there that have been programming against ......

With SharePoint's next release on the horizon (May 12th) many of my clients and colleagues are starting to ramp up for the upcoming tidal wave of functionality. Microsoft has been doing a terrific job of getting as much information out in the public lime light as possible over the last few months and I think that will definitely pay off with regards ......

A while back I decided to leave ProKarma, Inc. There were many reasons for my departure most of which I won't detail in this blog post. However I am proud to announce that I am now part of the ShareSquared, Inc team. I am sure that most of you might not have ever heard of ShareSquared so that is the reason for the post. Not only to update everyone of ......

Presenters: Simon Skaria and Umesh Unnikrishnan This was my second session during the week. It was one in which my hopes were that they would talk about the deployment differences that SharePoint 2010 would have over 2007. I was not disappointed. So to sum it up a bit: 2010 has a much more flexible model compared to 2007. Improved security model Claims ......

Okay, I know that I haven't posted much on the sessions as of yet, however I thought I would do that after this post. Overall the conference was outstanding. I was told that there were over 8000 people in attendance. It was really well run and the attendees were constantly doing something constructive and worthwhile. The evening events were spectacular ......

After the keynote sessions and lunch the first set of breakout sessions kicked off. Needless to say with the session line up it was difficult to choose only one to attend. However I thought it would be wise to at least see what is new and get an overview of the platform. I got to the session a bit late, but I don't think that I missed much. Arpan Shah ......

So first impressions….. Hmmmmm…. This is BIG! First off, the conference is sold out. There has been an increase of attendance of close to 100% since the last conference. There are people here from over 70 different countries. The keynote was not what I had expected. Ballmer did a great job explaining the new vision for SharePoint and how they are starting ......

Over three years ago I ran in to a Microsoft server product that I fell in love with. It is enormous, complex, and useful in so many ways. Enormous because it solves many common business problems out of the box there isn't many competitors that can top that. Complex because there isn't just one way to solve most of the business problems with this product. ......
