Phil Wheat's Knowledge Matters

This blog started out as "Developing SharePoint" but has expanded outside of that exclusive domain to a number of other areas concerning Knowledge and the various forms and representations it can take.

  • Blog Post: Smart for Who? Connected Devices and You SxSW Interactive Session

    In the spirit of completeness, I wanted to make a few comments about my other session I submitted for SxSWi- “ Smart for Who? ”  This session really came out of looking around my office and working spaces and really noting not only how connected all those “impulse electronics” and “entertainment...
  • Blog Post: Your Brain in the Cloud SxSW Interactive Session.

    I’ve had a couple of people ask me (and a couple of people not ask, but given their own spin on the title) and so I thought I’d do a bit more commentary on my “Brain” session submission. From the site (“ Your Brain in the Cloud ”), you’ll see the description as: Workflows, Agents, Bots... Not only is...
  • Blog Post: Private Cloud Architecture to be discussed at Worldwide Partner Conference in July

    It’s been up a couple of days, but I just saw a tweet fly past about it.  If you check out session CI011 on the session track ( https://www.mspartnerconference.com/public/sessionlist.aspx?keyword=CI011 ) you’ll see that there’s some great information about the Infrastructure strategy behind Microsoft...
  • Blog Post: PHP SDK for Windows Azure

    I had a number of people ask me about PHP and Windows Azure at this past weekend’s Startup Weekend.  To spread out the info a bit more, I wanted to point out that the PHP SDK is now up on CodePlex - http://phpazure.codeplex.com/ .  There’s a lot of info there on PHP and how it fits in with...
  • Blog Post: Deck I used for ArcReady

    I just got reminded that I promised to get the ArcReady deck up after Dallas, but got distracted by some internal planning meetings.  So here it is - http://www.slideshare.net/PhilWh/architecting-for-the-client   I’ve left the speaker notes in, and you can find the videos I used at http://www...
  • Blog Post: Coding Outside the Box Series (What and Why)

    So what’s this all about?  You may have heard me talking about this during the spring, but with all of the activity and talks during March, I’m making myself sit down and put some of it together.  The base concept of this series of posts is that if you want to be be your most effective in architecting...
  • Blog Post: Windows Essential Business Server

    If you’ve heard me talk to Small Businesses, you know that I’m a HUGE fan of Small Business Server and the different editions that it ships with.  It’s GREAT for Small companies, but it is fairly easy to grow out of – and the step up to a full enterprise infrastructure can be a pretty big step. ...
  • Blog Post: LINQ on the Micro Framework

    I’ve been working with LINQToTwitter a lot and really enjoy the flexibility that LINQ gives me.  But I thought that I couldn’t use it everywhere.  Well, there’s one more place that has shown up – the Micro Framework!  http://blogs.oberon.ch/tamberg/2009-02-06/implementing-linq-on-the-dotnet...
  • Blog Post: High Schools get in on DreamSpark

    One of the things that was interesting last year at Maker Faire Austin was how many students are really excited about technology, software, and development in general.  Well, that awareness is getting out as well and the DreamSpark program that was active with Universities is now open to High Schools...
  • Blog Post: Roles for SharePoint projects

    One question that keeps coming up again and again is what should I look for in a SharePoint guy.  I get asked this a lot and from many different directions, but it’s a large enough topic that I’ve resisted following my rule and blogging the answer to any question I get asked more than once. ...
  • Blog Post: MVC release under OSI approved License!

    No April Fool’s here – check out Scot Guthrie’s latest blog post.  MVC Framework from Microsoft has been released under the the OSI approved MS-PL license.   You can read all about it at http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2009/04/01/asp-net-mvc-1-0.aspx
  • Blog Post: BizSpark Program Guide for Startups

    I’ll be talking tomorrow at the Sustainable Startup event hosted by Green Technology Alliance.  For those following my blog – here’s a bit of homework for in the morning.  There’s a great overview of the BizSpark program here .  I’ll be covering the details in my talk, but if you want...
  • Blog Post: I’ve always loved the Vision videos.

    You might have figured that out about me, I’ve been a fan since even before the original .Net launch vision videos.  Well, Office Labs dropped out another one of them last week – you can see the envisioning video here or the full series here .  There’s a lot in there.  The only thing I...
  • Blog Post: Startups everywhere

    I had a nice little blog post I was working up about StartupCamp Austin this past weekend (I still want to work up some more there- it was a great camp) but it seems like I'm getting swamped by Startup activities these days.  Saturday was a great event with plenty of briefings, pitches, and super...
  • Blog Post: Architecting for the Cloud is right around the corner!

    I’m behind on some of my event posts, but I was asked enough about when ArcReady is coming back around that I thought I need to drop it in pronto!  This ArcReady tour is starting in St Louis (Clint gets to be the point guy) but it’s coming to Austin the following week – March 10th (just in time...
  • Blog Post: I2C to USB Adapter

    This one's as much for me as for the regular post. One of the coolest thing about embedded development today is that there are so many parallels to the original PC development space.  For instance the I2C bus is actually filling the old S-100 bus space, but unfortunately you really had to dive full...
  • Blog Post: ArcReady slides for our session on architecting modern distributed applications

    I was just talking with Omar about the different ways we architect our systems in an S+S world and he pointed out that in the blog move I evidently missed/lost/forgot the link for our ArcReady session on the subject.  So here is the replacement link to the slides from that tour. http://www.slideshare...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint Guidance

    OK, I've blogged about the SharePoint Guidance pack a while ago, but there's a new version out last month.  Take a look over at http://microsoft.com/spg (SharePoint Guidance) and get some of the details from the product group and P&P guys on how to implement and extend SharePoint as part of...
  • Blog Post: Green in the new year.

    Infoworld has a interview with a number of technology personalities on how Sustainability is going to be affected by the economic situation in the upcoming year.  It's interesting to note the diversity of opinions as to what the key factors are, but I do like the point that our Lewis Curtis points...
  • Blog Post: Application Architecture Guidance Book 2.0

    I'd meant to get this out a while ago, but things have been packed solidly for a while.  There's a new version of the Application Architecture Guidance out now - you can find the information at http://www.codeplex.com/AppArchGuide .  Don't expect it to create your Architecture for you, but...
  • Blog Post: ArcReady Slides

    For everyone who made it to the ArcReady tour this time, thank you very much for attending.  As promised, I've uploaded the slides and have the link below for them on SlideShare.   http://www.slideshare.net/PhilWh/arc-ready-q2-blended-deck-presentation/
  • Blog Post: ArcReady Links I mentioned

    For our Dallas, attendees, I apologize - I had to juggle a couple of other events and am being slow about putting up the links I mentioned.  For Austin, here's the list - I made it before my deadline. :-) For the event slides, you can go to http://www.tinyurl.com/ArcReady For the beta information...
  • Blog Post: Architecting for Internet Scale and Usability

    With all the fun we've been having lately - I just wanted to post a pointer to the last ArcReady event we hosted.  Architecting for Scalable and Usable Web applications.  Twitter , are you working on it?  I've been a fan since last year's SxSW, but you're DYING at this point.  I may...
  • Blog Post: Now THERE's someone doing some productive work with Robotics Studio!

    Angel Lopez was pointed out to me as someone who's really gotten into Robotics Studio. I went to check his blog at http://ajlopez.wordpress.com/2008/06/22/distributed-agents-and-fractals-using-dssvpl/ and was incredibly impressed. He's not only put together some great mathematical services for Robotics...
  • Blog Post: Red Food Coloring and Karo Syrup

    When I read "If Chins could Kill" by Bruce Campbell, one of the things I found out was his lust for Red Food Coloring and Karo Syrup.  It's in several of the chapters and is a great metaphor for simulating those things that are too distasteful to actually work with in real life. ...
