AddThis Social Bookmark Button
On 7th June in London 15 start-ups from across Europe will get five minutes to pitch their business on stage to Europe’s most successful venture capitalists. No pressure! It’s worth the preparation – in 2010 UK company Artesian Solutions won the grand prize, and two years later they have a Series A investment from a VC they met at the Summit.  Think “Eurovision for start-ups” - this year the start-ups are from the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, Greece, Russia, Poland and Israel. Make sure you vote for your favourite in the People’s Choice Award before 7th June.

What’s changed for app developers since the Win 8 Consumer Preview

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
source: blogs.msdn It’s that time again: With the new Release Preview and the new developer tools, Windows 8 is one step closer to final release. And just like in the Consumer Preview, our engineering team has been hard at work polishing the development platform to provide you with the best possible development experience on Windows 8. In this post I highlight a few of the new features that we’ve been working on and I also help get you started on migrating your existing Consumer Preview apps to the Release Preview. But

Migrating the SharePoint 2007 “FAB 40” templates to SharePoint 2010 (Surya Kiran)

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Introduction As a consultant for Microsoft Global Delivery, I recently worked with a Customer who asked for continued use of the Application Templates for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (known as the Fab 40 templates) in their Office 365, SharePoint Online Dedicated environment. But we were in a dilemma, because some templates were not working with the SharePoint 2010 release. With the help of .Net Reflector, I have found a resolution to this dilemma. Background

Basically, there are some issues with a few of the .wsp files after upgrade. In particular, after upgrading, some customers are unable to create new sites based
on the following templates: Absence Request and Vacation Schedule Management, Call Center, Help Desk, IT Team Workspace, Knowledge Base, and Physical Asset Tracking and Management.

There are freely downloadable templates which can work in SharePoint 2010, but not with sites that have been upgraded from SharePoint 2007.

After the fixed FAB 40 templates are installed on a SharePoint 2010 environment, they will work with sites upgraded from SharePoint 2007, and new sites can also be created. See the Conclusion and Links section at the end of this article for the location where you can download the templates. Note   Because...(Read whole news on source site)
