I’ve been working on these since early 2013, and they’re now edited, polished and ready! It’s a total of 76 videos, or 9.5 hours of content covering installation and configuration of SharePoint 2013.
I love Silverlight. There. I’ve said it. I think it’s a fantastic opportunity for developers to write beautiful, client-side, apps using the tools they know and love – Visual Studio 2010. We can also use the gorgeous Expression suite (especially Expression Blend) to design and author rich, interactive applications.
I’ve just come across another great video from Jason Zander at the UK Tech Days event in Reading. This time it’s about mobile applications and the Azure platform.
I’ve been following the Microsoft cloud service offerings for a couple of years since the Microsoft Architect Insight Conference 2008. What started as SQL Server Data Services and the nascent BizTalk Services, has now grown into an offering that in my opinion does not just complete with Amazon and Google cloud services, but far exceeds the capabilities of their model.
Over the next few weeks I’m building the new SharePoint 2010 Developer Course for Firebrand Training. These are exciting times for SharePoint 2007 (MOSS and WSS 3.0) developers looking to acquire new skills.
Since managed code made its appearance about a decade ago, I’ve not touched MFC or C++. For business applications or just for applications that look great, writing code in MFC/C++ seemed to be doing things the hard way. A few weeks ago at a TechDays event, I got the chance to see that the unmanaged code world hasn’t been standing still either.
