Office 365 Newswire: Welcome to Visual Studio 11 Beta and .NET Framework 4.5 – 3.2.2012

Video: Creating a custom SharePoint 2010 ribbon

I'm really intrigued by Office 365. I think the way Microsoft is marketing it (and pricing it) is compelling. What I like most is the potential user base it represents. I really like that I can build a solution and publish it. I really love that people can buy it and then use it during their day. It's a bit like writing words and then having you read them...

Office 365 Newswire: How cozy are RIM, Microsoft? – 2.10.2012

I don't know about this deal with RIM. I think it was made because it makes sense from the Office 365 side. Why wouldn't they want to support as many devices as they can?

Moving your existing Access database to Office 365

A few years ago I had a client who since they started their business used a Microsoft Access database to track their projects and the time their consultants worked on projects. As the company expanded the database grew up to a point where they realized an upgrade is needed. I was asked to move the database to a Microsoft SQL server backend, whilst keeping MS Access as the front-end... Read the rest of this entry →
