    More SharePoint 2010 Development resources…


    I’ve spent a good chunk of this weekend playing with SharePoint. While playing with SharePoint I also stumbled on App Comat stuff, which was really useful for my application.

    Here’s my two favorite items to get you started with…

    Application Compatibility for Office 2010

    Analyze your environment for installed add-ins and identify potential migration issues as you migrate earlier versions of Office to Office 2010. Learn how the Compatibility Inspector tools can perform an analysis of the code and suggest potential issues with this video on Channel 9. Additional videos and a lab are also available.

    Learn SharePoint 2010 Best Practices Explore design considerations you should have as you start creating SharePoint solutions targeting SharePoint 2010. Additional videos, labs and code available on testing, deployment and security in this new training course on Channel 9.


    Go out and have fun with one of the best products that is out there from Microsoft.

    We are our Choices…


    One of the best commencement speeches I’ve seen or heard. This is right on top with Steve Job’s commencement speech at Stanford for the class of 2005. Hat’s off to Mr. Jeff Bezos on such a wonderful speech. Really thought provoking. Especially the last few introspective questions,

    Tomorrow, in a very real sense, your life -- the life you author from scratch on your own -- begins.

    How will you use your gifts? What choices will you make?

    Will inertia be your guide, or will you follow your passions?

    Will you follow dogma, or will you be original?

    Will you choose a life of ease, or a life of service and adventure?

    Will you wilt under criticism, or will you follow your convictions?

    Will you bluff it out when you're wrong, or will you apologize?

    Will you guard your heart against rejection, or will you act when you fall in love?

    Will you play it safe, or will you be a little bit swashbuckling?

    When it's tough, will you give up, or will you be relentless?

    Will you be a cynic, or will you be a builder?

    Will you be clever at the expense of others, or will you be kind?
