  • Blog Post: Creating a "vertical" application on Office Live

    We've mentioned before the idea of creating a custom application that sits on top of Office Live and is tailored to meet the needs of a specific "vertical" industry such as real estate, construction or retail. Our technical evangelist Rohit Puri has created a new sample called the Inn Manager, which...
  • Blog Post: Flash charts for Office Live business applications

    Charting is one area that we've wanted to see improve in Office Live.

  • Blog Post: Office Live Business Contact Manager + Zillow.com mashup sample

    A pretty cool mashup courtesy of our devs Katy and Albert (who you may be familiar with from his screencast videos ).

  • Blog Post: WSS v3 SDK and Workflow Starter Kit

    Just heard about the update release of the Windows SharePoint Services v3 SDK and also something called the Workflow Starter Kit. I don't know anything about the Workflow Starter Kit, but it sounds pretty helpful. The big question in my mind is what relevance it will have for Office Live users. I'll...
  • Blog Post: Workflow in Office Live

    We've been heads-down crunching on the next release for Office Live, so I've been pretty bad at blogging for the last few weeks. But the WSS team blogged a couple weeks ago about a new whitepaper regarding Windows Workflow Foundations and it's use in Windows SharePoint Services version 3. Since Office...
