Snip-IT Pro – manage all those little code snippets for re-use and sharing…
An old colleague of mine from Avanade has apparently put out a very cool tool for managing re-usable “snippets” of code from a repository. This is a tool that could be used every day, or even for demos… This is a smooth application that takes advantage of some the P&P smart client framework. Quite a professional tool… The name of the tools is Snip-IT Pro http://www.snipitpro.com/in... It can also managed / retrieve snippets from a hosted service called http://snipplr.com/ along with Frankly, ......

SharePoint 2010 and Claims Based Awareness
The industry it moving towards identity standards, and with the recent release of Windows Identity Foundation (fka Geneva), and the beta of SharePoint 2010, it’s important to take a look at the direction of how identity is being normalized into a “service” within the SharePoint object model. With SPS 2010, the SPUser object is now a claims identity. Identity management has been normalized to a approach that internally uses an STS that takes all “provider” or external STS identities, then creates ......

Please refer to the upgrade log for more details When you pull that log apart, you’ll see that it’s attempting to load a few types such as Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.S... from assembly 'Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.... ......

Loopback Check on Windows 2008, etc.
This KB article (KB926642) explains 2 methods for handling the scenarios that we as developers require for using a local machine for development. My option has been, going forward, of being explicitly in the host names that my development machine will use. From that article: Method 1 (recommended): Create the Local Security Authority host names that can be referenced in an NTLM authentication request To do this, follow these steps for all the nodes on the client computer: Click Start, click Run, ......

Tongue in Cheek Geek Humor from the PDC
An old colleague (Biff Gaut) of mine has a great daily newsletter from the PDC. This is certainly targeted for those of us looking for a “light” look at all things new that come out of PDC, but at times very technical with a perspective from someone who has been in the industry for some time (20+ years), started off as a C or C++ developer (not sure how early as I started with C/ASM). But, as always, with the technical content comes the sometimes dry, humor that only Biff can interweave into the ......

Cleanup your Features…

Many times, your coding, etc. SharePoint features.  You’ll code something up, deploy, activate, etc. 

Using WSP builder, while a convenient tool, it also leaves some orphans around.  It forcibly deletes the solution leaving any place it’s activate with some “broken features”.

Fortunately, there’s a tool to help you cleanup those orphans.

SharePoint 2010 Developer | Learn | Channel 9
Ted Pattison and Andrew Connell have a bunch of Learning SharePoint 2010 content up on Channel 9. I can say, having attended Ted’s classes in the past, he’s one of the best to learn SharePoint development from. He’s been at the forefront of getting to the reality of how to build things while working with the guidelines, rules, constraints of a “managed” platform such as SharePoint. If you get a chance take a look at these videos – even better, if you can attend in person, check out http://www.criticalpathtrai... ......

TeamPrise acquired by Microsoft.
TeamPrise – the cross platform “client” for TFS, with Eclipse support (plug-in), command line – has been acquired by Microsoft. So, we’ve been pushing folks to a 3rd parties to get back to the ALM Mothership – which is by far the best Enterprise class ALM platform that can scale from “1” person (see 2010 TFS) to thousands, geo-distributed – now, we can offer it direct resolving client’s concerns. Not that the SourceGear guys are of concern, they’ve been around for quite some time. This is great news. ......
