We have an extra section today. The topic is the recent Office 365 price reduction. I have to tip my cap to the great XL-Dennis. He got me thinking this way by leaving a thoughtful comment on last week's Office 365 Newswire... Read the rest of this entry →

Office 365 Newswire: SharePoint Online site templates – 3.9.2012

Office 365 is still new enough that "introductory" and "first impressions"-type of articles are good things. This one is all about site templates. The author even offers some analysis of the page structure. I don't agree with their conclusion however... Read the rest of this entry →

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

One of the great things about the MVP Summit is hob-knobbing with other developers... particularly anyone that develops with the Office platform. I typically think of myself as an Office Developer, even when doing non-Office-related projects... Read the rest of this entry →

Office Newswire: Is Microsoft killing Windows for the sake of Office? – 2.29.2012

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: The benefits of CRM integration with Office 365 – 2.17.2012

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? Of course it makes sense for RIM too... if only to slow all the negative momentum of the last couple of years. I disagree completely with the headline's implication... Read the rest of this entry →

Office 365 – Using jQuery with SharePoint Online

JavaScript, whether you love it or hate it, it's here to stay. Now, JavaScript does have its quirks and irritations, especially if you're used to managed code such as VB.Net or C#.
