I’ve done quite a bit of work with the client-side People Picker in SharePoint-hosted apps lately.  I find that while it is relatively easy to get set up, I found it was quite easy to break.  I have found that it tended to work better in Office...
In the last few months, I have noticed some new acronyms creep up in the SharePoint community.  What is it?  Well as a developer, it’s stuff you’re probably already doing.  You take a search in your favorite search engine and you won’t...
Cloud Business Apps are a new project type that you will find in Visual Studio 2013 for SharePoint development.  What exactly are they?  They are the next evolution of LightSwitch using the app model.  If you’re not familiar with LightSwitch...
I wanted to create an autocomplete textbox in a SharePoint app recently by using terms from the term store.  Since retrieving items from the term store can be a bit involved I wanted to show you the steps involved.  This solution make use of...

The Office Developer Tools team snuck a new feature into the RTM version of the tools for Visual Studio 2012.  This new feature allows you to deploy apps and actually alter the search schema on the host web .  That’s right.  You can deploy...
My PowerShell posts always prove to be the most popular.  I showed all sorts of cool PowerShell tricks in my talk back at SPC12.  One of the things I covered was how to install and manage apps using PowerShell.  Since there is a corporate...
I had a great time last night at the Austin SharePoint Users Group ( @AustinSPUG ).  We had a great turnout and we had a good discussion of what the publication process looks like with SharePoint 2013 Apps in the Office Store.  Austin has a...
The great thing about living in Texas is that there is three SharePoint users groups less than three hours away from me.  I’m excited to have the opportunity to be speaking in Austin twice in the next couple weeks.  The first talk is tomorrow...
If you have tried to do any work with SharePoint 2013 Client Web Parts with the Office Developer Tools Preview 2 in Visual Studio 2012, you know it’s an exercise in frustration.  It literally locks up every three or four lines of code you try to...
This is one of those posts that I have promised to write but I totally forgot about.  What I want to talk about today is passing parameters to SharePoint 2013 Client Web Parts.  These parameters are equivalent to the properties on traditional...
