I was presenting 2 sessions at Techdays in Ottawa on Tuesday.  During the breaks I had the chance to see the new Windows Phone and  played with the new Kinect!  It is pretty cool.
 
I saw a good presentation on integration of Facebook, Exchange and SharePoint on the Windows Phone.  Very nice.

Problem with SP2010 October CU

Leave a comment

Microsoft has just announced that there is a problem with the SharePoint 2010 October Cummulative update.   If you’ve downloaded the October CU then DON’T install it, if you have already installed it, contact Microsoft Support for assistance.

Microsoft is working on guidance for what to do next.  The bug can cause the profile store to repeatedly crash.

See this blog for more information:

SharePoint 2010 Easy Setup Script

Leave a comment

Brief Description

The SharePoint 2010 Easy Setup Script will enable you to easily build a SharePoint developer machine.

Overview

The SharePoint 2010 Easy Setup Script is a new set of pre-packaged tools that help developers easily get started with SharePoint 2010 development by automating the provisioning of a developer workstation using Windows 7, SharePoint & associated tools.
Written in Windows PowerShell these scripts will install and configure all the pre-requisites & products to get you up and running with SharePoint development.
Additionally the script will download evaluation copies of the products it installs (or use fully licensed product bits you supply), install them either locally or in a user supplied Windows 7 VHD & set that VHD up for duel boot using the Windows 7 VHD native boot feature. It also allows you to configure what products are installed via a configuration file, so you can add or remove products.

All the source is included for your use. If a particular aspect of the setup isn’t right for your requirements then you have the ability to change it. A good example of this might be to configure the SharePoint installation to fit your organizations standard deployment.

Out of the box it will help you install:

  • SharePoint Server 2010 + pre-requisites (Standalone)
  • Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Edition
  • Silverlight 4 Tools for Visual Studio
  • Expression Studio 4 Ultimate
  • Open XML SDK
  • Visual Studio SDK
  • Visual Studio SharePoint Power Tools
  • Office 2010 Professional Plus
  • SharePoint Designer 2010
  • Visio 2010
