Farhan's Two Cents on Collaboration, Integration & Enterprise Tech. Farhan Khan
MS has recently released a Business User training portal which can be installed on SPS and offers course-like environment where every user can track the completion of chapters/sections that focus upon various portal tasks. Im glad that MS has finally catered to something that should have been catered to long ago. I have had the personal opportunity ......

My opinion so far about every Google initiative is that they do it better than most and almost always accompanied with a sizeable business strategy to backup the product. Latest in their offerings is their version of wikipedia: Knol is different because it credits and pays the authors and by the same token makes them accountable too thereby offering ......

After iPhone, few other names have been making frequent rounds of the internet recently. Since I am an early adopter of iPhone and majorly interested in gPhone and any other variants I thought I might as well jump in and clarify some terms and/or miconceptions at play here. iPhone as you may already be aware is an actual phone running a stripped down ......

If you have deployed or are in the middle of a MOSS deployment, SP1 should be of major interest to you. It addresses many of the product issues that your team may have realized during the implementation/configuration of the platform. Personally I have experienced two issues which would be resolved by SP1: Editing of documents crashes with multiple versions ......

Its a runtime to... support Windows Presentation Foundation/Everywhere (WPF/E) support browser based applications offer comprehensive (or more) features of JavaFX, Adobe Flash, AJAX components execute C#/VB.net code (it includes .Net 3.0 CLR) for a laundry list of features refer to http://blogs.msdn.com/tims/... ......

Since I am currently leading an enterprise portal rollout, I wanted to share a few thoughts on whats there in such effort that does not meet the eye. Political factors aside, strictly on the technical end there are a few creases that need to be ironed out early in the project and some of those are Identifying the Portal stakeholders (could be different ......

First lets dive into the definition of a governance plan infact more importantly what will it do for your enterprise. MOSS/Sharepoint is a collaboration platform and when the process of collaboration begins after deployment many processes will be required to maintain the integrity of data and structure within the enterprise portal. Examples are Team ......

It certainly has been a long time and I was hoping to make a full year's absence but then here I am again. Since its been a long time there have been many interesting aspects of technology and life in general that I have experienced. On MS end, Vista, MOSS, BizTalk 2006, .Net 3.0 have been some of the technologies Ive had the chance to play with. Nevertheless ......

Since I am a big fan of hotkeys, I thought it would be a nice idea to put a near-comprehensive list together (through research aka googling) ~Smile~ Win = Start Menu, Win + Pause = System Properties, Win + D = Show Desktop, Win + M = Minimize all windows, Win + E = Launch Win Explorer (@ My Computer), Win + R = Run Command, Win + Shift + M = Maximize ......

Career means different things to each of us and so does success, some attribute it to increasing monetary gains while others may ascribe it to personal satisfaction and then again the personal satisfaction may have different meanings to each of us and it can go on and on... I am not here to argue about perceptions since that kind of analysis ie beyond ......

The weekend was pretty hectic as I tried to install Longhorn Beta 1 but the effort proved futile on my VPC. The machine kept rebooting after the initial product key/info screens and although once it got as far as two hours of installation but then rebooted only to complain of Boot.ini. The Vista was a breeze though as it installed on the first try (though ......

The example here builds a sample workflow which is event driven. The test harness will emulate a Document arrival notification and send notification to the workflow. Upon receipt of the event the workflow shall come out of its latent state and become active. The workflow will then check if the passed in data is for urgent processing (based on Priority ......

Finally a WF that will not give you any 'Package Load' error on VS.NET 2005 Release version launch. I have just downloaded and installed it on my VM. I will be posting more about my experiments with WF later on, for now you can download here and play with it yourself . It seems that the first installation was not all that smooth and things had to be ......

So Google has already launched Google Base which is said to be an eMarket like eBay (screenshots are already available on the web posted by those fortunate enough to log in for once); apparently Google seems to follow SSO (single sign-on) :-) and therefore your Gmail account should be able to log you in. MS also seems to follow the google foot prints ......
