Recently, a client of mine acquired some KWizCom web parts.  I installed them and they seemed to work fine.  However, during the configuration, we ended up building a new web application or two.  On these web applications, I started to...
I recently published my first post about SharePoint development with Visual Studio 11 and I mentioned that there were some changes in how the Visual Web Part worked.  If you are familiar with the Visual Web Part in Visual Studio 2010 , you know it...
Last week, I posted about how we can extend CoreResultsWebPart to show documents created by the current user.  Using this same technique, we can also use search to find recently modified documents.  If you are a long time follower of my blog...
Sorry, I’ve been slacking.  I’m a full week behind on posting my slides from SharePoint Saturday Houston 2011 .  This SharePoint Saturday was certainly unforgettable and I had a great time both attending and speaking.  I presented my Beginning...
You know by now that the cloud is hot and Microsoft says “we’re all in”.  That being said, there has never been a better time to push all of those chips forward and  jump on the bandwagon.  It’s time to get some experience with SharePoint...

That’s a mouth full.  I always suspected it was possible to use Visual Studio 2010 to package up my SharePoint web parts and other artifacts into a solution (.wsp file) and turn around and deploy that code into MOSS 2007.  Today I gave it a...
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...
If you are already familiar with SharePoint 2010, you already know how easy it is to build and deploy a web part now.  However, this post is for those that don’t keep up with SharePoint as some of us do and may not realize how the development experience...
I have a talk coming up on Code Access Security at SharePoint Saturday Kansas City next month so I have been investigating sandboxed solutions quite a bit.  After all, sandboxed solutions are just another flavor of using CAS with some additional...
By now, you have heard about how the SharePoint 2010 development experience has been improved.  We can easily deploy web parts and other code without having to manually manipulate any XML files.  What about under partial trust though? ...
You might have seen that there is a new designer for working with web parts in Visual Studio 2010.  This is actually, not quite the case, so I thought I would share with you how it actually works.  When you use the Visual Web Part SPI (SharePoint...
