Moving Everyone and Everything to AngularJS

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
We are late on the boat.  But I'm describing the journey for us, and we are truly on the boat. So in mid 2014, SharePoint Gurus decided that we'll move everyone to JavaScript.  Traditionally, we are very much an InfoPath, Workflows and Configuration-over-Customization type of Consultancy.My background is hardcore ASP.NET so I get all the fun stuff of writing Full Trust and Sandbox Solutions.  Custom Web Parts, Feature Receivers and Workflow Activities.  Later, as more work moves to client-side scripting, I would write Full Trust REST service end-points that provide lots of functionality to our InfoPath and Front-End Developers.As InfoPath
goes on a slowly (but surely) spiral of death, we look forward to where we should be investing our company's time and skills.  I was asked to consider and plan out the migration path for the company.What we looked at:JQueryJQuery itself was a good starting point, and possibly the simplest JavaScript library one should start with.  Traditionally, it's used for DOM manipulation, but it's usefulness was extended with jQuery Ajax and jQuery Deferred/Promise.  We use JQuery and the various plugins for JQuery for a lot of things.  Additionally, JQuery works very well with SPServices on SP2007 customizations.

Open Source @ Microsoft

IntroductionThis post is based on the presentation I did for Porto Tech Hub 2015, Microsoft ♥ Open Source, slightly revised and augmented.TL;DRI intent to demonstrate that Microsoft’s involvement with open source is not exactly new.So, the big news is:
Microsoft is embracing/supporting/producing/using open source software: Microsoft & Open Source Software!
Lots of APIs are now open source, others will follow!
Applications are being considered for release as open source!
But, let’s think for a moment… is this actually new?A Bit of HistorySo, let’s take a walk down the memory lane

New Azure Billing APIs Available

Organizations moving to the cloud can achieve significant cost savings.  But to achieve the maximum benefit you need to be able to accurately track your cloud spend in order to monitor and predict your costs. Enterprises need to be able to get detailed, granular consumption data and derive insights to effectively manage their cloud consumption. I’m excited to announce the public preview release of two new Azure Billing APIs today: the Azure Usage API and Azure RateCard API which provide customers and partners programmatic access to their Azure consumption and pricing details: Azure Usage API
– A REST API that customers and partners can use to get their usage data for an Azure subscription. As part of this new Billing API we now correlate the usage/costs by the resource tags you can now set set on your Azure resources (for example: you could assign a tag “Department abc” or “Project X” to a VM or Database in order to better track spend on a resource and charge it back to an internal group within your company). To get more details, please read the MSDN page on the Usage API. Enterprise Agreement (EA) customers can...(Read whole news on source site)
