    After a year hiatus, I've found a doctor to do a partial reversal of my management lobotomy ;).  I've done my management job so well, that I get to do that and some consulting on the side, you know like a hobby.  Everyone needs at least two...

    Larry Has Left the Building...

    • 2 Comments
    Last April I took a new job at Microsoft as a consulting manager. This means my Project Server development has been shrinking toward zero (obviously you can't let managers write code). I still get questions from people periodically from my blog. I realized...

    I got a request over a month ago for my presentation from TechEd. I missed the request buried in the thousands of spam comments I get :(. So attached is the deck, you already have the samples in previous posts. Under the Godfather heading of "Everytime...

    Testing Columns in a DataSet

    • 5 Comments
    I ran into a nasty little surprise the other day. I was writing some code to see if a Project has a WSS site associated with it. So here is the code that I’ve cut down for brevity: private string GetWSSSite( Guid projectGuid) { ProjectWS. ProjectDataSet...

    How do I Create a Project Server User?

    • 4 Comments
    This post started with a pretty innocuous email that I thought had an innocuous answer too. But you know if I’m writing about it here, it got a little challenging. The question of the day is what is a Project Server User? A Project Server user is...

    Project Server 2007 Beta 2 TR VM

    • 4 Comments
    I usually don't announce the availability of the Project Server 2007 VMs on my blog. But since the beta program is closing down, it hasn't really been announced anywhere else. So… (trumpets sound)… the Project Server 2007 Beta 2 TR VM has been available...

    PS2007 Project Details (VBA)

    • 2 Comments
    Fourth post, I think this is it. We started with C#, what you normally see the Project Server samples in. We shifted to VB.Net and realized the difference wasn’t too significant. Then we moved into JavaScript, which proved to be challenging. Finally we...

    PS2007 Project Details (JavaScript)

    • 10 Comments
    Post three and now things are getting a little more interesting. We leave the blanket of .Net and head out into the cold harsh reality of HTML, XML, and JavaScript. I want to do the same thing I did in the previous examples... get the list of projects...

    PS2007 Project Details Sample (VB.Net)

    • 1 Comments
    OK, post two... we've gone to VB.net. If you want to know how to run this program see the C# sample, they are identical. I actually had to recode a lot of the sample, the converters I found didn't handle the UI, which is 90% of the sample. The main difference...

    This is the first of a few posts on the same sample. Wow this must be a big sample to have multiple posts... well yes and no. The sample is pretty straight forward: List the projects in an instance of Project Server 2007, then display details about the...

    Keep Pushing to RTM

    • 2 Comments
    Althought the posts have slowed I certainly haven't. Building the Beta 2 TR VM has been a much bigger job than originally thought. For beta participants if all goes well (and believe me things have not gone well up to now) the VM should be available for...
