    For the past 7 years, I worked in Developer Platform Evangelism to talk to customers about the latest and greatest technologies that Microsoft would soon be releasing, and worked to gain early adopters of the technologies.  This was a very fun job, but I desired a change.  This past July, I...
  • Blog Post: Creating a Delete Without Recycling Feature for List Items in SharePoint 2007

    In my last post, I talked about errors you might encounter while trying to empty the second stage recycle bin with SharePoint 2007.

  • Blog Post: Emptying the Second Stage Recycle Bin in SharePoint 2007

    Look in your second stage recycle bin in SharePoint 2007.  If you see lots of items that are older than the configured policy (default is 30 days), then there are one of a few things happening in your environment.  Your recycle bin cleanup job might be disabled, or you might be running into...
  • Blog Post: Import SharePoint Projects from Visual Studio 2008 to Visual Studio 2010

    I was working on a project for a customer today and needed to build a custom field control.  Visual Studio 2010 does not have a template for creating a field control.  I thought about crafting one by hand, but then I remembered that Visual Studio Extensions for Windows SharePoint Services 1...

  • Blog Post: Consuming SharePoint Lists via AJAX

    I’ve done a bit of work with customers interested in consuming SharePoint data without using the SharePoint web services.  A common request asks how to consume the data from JavaScript. Turns out the answer is easy when you develop a custom feature. I created a companion screencast on Channel9 that...
  • Blog Post: Using Themes with Visual Studio 2008 and VSeWSS

    Sweet!  10 new SharePoint Themes released!   Each theme is represented as a Visual Studio 2008 solution that you can use with Visual Studio Extensions for Windows SharePoint Services 1.3 .  This is cool because it shows you how VSeWSS 1.3 will use the child “templates/themes” directory...
