I’ve got a number of talks coming up that I am excited about.  It turns out that talking about my experiences publishing SharePoint 2013 apps to the Office Store is hot!  I’ve already spoken about it in Austin and now I’ll be speaking about...
This is the third time (and hopefully final) I am writing this post about building Client Web Parts (App Parts) for SharePoint 2013 with Visual Studio 2012.  This is largely due to the Office Developer Tools going through a few iterations ( Preview...
I have a session coming up at SharePoint Summit Toronto this year about the many different ways you can query search.  Whenever I am working on a new talk, it is customary for me to write blog posts about my examples so here it is. :)  I first...
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...
I’ve always founds IRM quite fascinating and the nice thing about Office 365 is that it is really easy to configure and use.  There are a few steps involved, but I managed to figure them out without having to go read a heap of documentation. ...

At SPC12 , I gave a talk about PowerShell in SharePoint 2013.  In that talk I upgraded a SharePoint 2010 site collection to SharePoint 2013.  I wanted to follow-up with a blog post showing the steps involved.  To begin the process, I have...
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...
By now you may have noticed that Search has changed quite a bit in SharePoint 2013. The ResultScriptWebPart powers most of the magic behind the Search Center.  It replaces the CoreResultsWebPart that we have been using since SharePoint 2007. ...
