This post is long overdue, but better late than never.  I had a great time at SPTechCon 2011 in Boston.  I had the chance to meet a lot of people in person for the first time that I had only previously known through twitter.  I gave two...
I had a great time at Houston TechFest this weekend.  I met a lot of new people and I got to see a lot of old friends.  At TechFest, I spoke about how to code advanced SharePoint BCS solutions using BCS entity models and custom connectors. ...
I have been researching Custom Index Connectors in SharePoint 2010 over the past few weeks.  I have been working with the MyFileConnector sample provided in the SDK, but after I made some changes, I realized it wasn’t immediately obvious how to debug...
I had the opportunity to give two talks at NWA TechFest yesterday in Rogers, AR.  It was a pretty good event organized by the one and only @DavidWalker .  I got to meet a lot of new people and talk about all sorts of things related to SharePoint...
I was working on updating my Search demo for #spshou and my BCS search results were really ugly.  I didn’t have a default action specified on my search results, nor did I have a profile page, so instead the search results would give me the BDC protocol...

Ok, so the title may be overly dramatic, but the BCS is really freaking cool now.  With SharePoint 2010 just around the corner, now is the time to start learning how you can leverage it.  I’ll be talking about the Business Connectivity Services...
Let’s face it.  Nowadays, management absolutely loves BI.  Especially when there are lots of pretty charts and graphs.  The thing is I’m not a BI guy.  Cubes scare me to death.  Luckily, there is the new snazzy Chart Web Part...
One of my favorite features in SharePoint 2010 is External Lists.  If you haven’t heard by now, the MOSS 2007 Business Data Catalog (BDC) has become Business Connectivity Services (BCS) in SharePoint 2010.  The ever better part is that it is...
I’m not privy to the NDA, so I got to look at some of the new SharePoint 2010 ( #sp2010 ) information for the first time with the Sneak Peak videos on the Microsoft site.  I’ll try not to just repeat information in the videos, but tell you what I...
