  • Blog Post: Sharepoint 2010 development using bcs

    One of the big features for SharePoint 2010 (and for building OBAs) is the Business Connectivity Services (BCS).

  • Blog Post: get trained with Sharepoint 2010 and office 2010 videos

    One of the charters of my team is to make sure that we provide collateral for developers to get up and running with a program called Metro—an early adoption program for ISVs (to sign up for Metro or get more information, you can email metroreq@microsoft.com ).

  • Blog Post: Tweeting from SharePoint 2010 Visual Web Part

    I’m still trying to get into the whole Tweet thing, so in an attempt to dig into it a little I took a look at the API and found out it’s pretty functional.

  • Blog Post: Using Media Streaming Services to Integrate Silverlight with SharePoint

    One of the cool things about the Media Streaming Services is that you can circumvent some of the server set-up for SharePoint and still integrate a Silverlight (SL) app into your SharePoint (SP) site.

The question often comes up is how? In this...
