I remember first hearing about the Pebble Smartwatch early last year and my first reaction was getting super nostalgic over the bright orange Motorola Pebl phone I had during the Motorola RAZR era.
I had some site columns I developed in one way or another on my SharePoint Online site within Office 365. They were all nestled together in a custom group name, conveniently called “Wef Custom”.
The title of this post says it all: sometimes, setting the UniqueContentTypeOrder on a List in CSOM barfs: "An unhandled exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint. Client.ServerException' occurred in Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime.dll Additional information: Unknown Error"
We have all at some point been asked by our clients for a Stock Information Web Part for their SharePoint site. If you have not been asked for this yet, don’t worry. Hopefully this blog will come in handy. And you can be the magnificent Hero that added amazing drama to your client’s SharePoint site.
Every organization has forms. They come in many shapes and sizes, formats, and are often a necessary evil. For organizations who use SharePoint as their intranet, they often utilize InfoPath as their form platform. It's an easy way to create forms and digitize business processes.
We stood in a line that crowded the first floor escalator, circled the Mascone Center's second level, and glacially lumbered up another flight to the pinnacle of the convention hall.
In November 2013, I was honored to be able to speak at SharePoint Saturday Denver. One of the perks of speaking there was that the awesome organizers put together a ShareSki—a group of SharePoint peeps skiing after a day of SharePoint Saturday Fun!
Like many terms coined by analysts and journalists, I believe the term “customer obsession” is misunderstood. Inc. Magazine talks about The 5 Habits of Customer Obsessed Companies. Salesforce talks about The Three Keys for Igniting Customer Obsession. There is even a book called “Customer Obsession: How to Acquire, Retain, and Grow Customers in the New Age of Relationship Marketing”.

I had a dream late in the night of Friday, February 7, 2014. I dreamed I was creating a PowerShell/CSOM script—in a mad scientist fashion—that copied every asset, configuration, and data row from one SharePoint Online instance to another. It was going very smoothly in my dream, and the script came to life like the robotic personal assistant in the Spike Jonze movie, “Her”. I fell in love with my script, and I gave her cyan and magenta Write-Host lines to communicate with me. Her name was Elise. The script became my girlfriend and went to a bar with me to play darts.
I'm not one to kiss and tell, especially when it comes to SharePoint, but I just made a really sweet workflow using Nintex and man, I want to tell you about it.
SharePoint 2013 isn't supported on Windows Server 2012 R2. Be that as it may, it works just fine. (There are articles out there on how to do some manual installation hacks to get this unsupported configuration working, but that is outside the scope of this post).
As we come to a new age of online communication, we have to take into account all the things we used to do. Gone are the days of the geocities website, and in are the days of responsive & adaptive design, HTML5, and CSS3.
Top 5 Things I Learned About Responsive Design While Making Mistakes And Being Mentored By Developers
Let’s say that at one point someone who looks a whole lot like me assumed that everyone had the same definition of responsive design. You know what they say about people that assume.
I'm working on an app that publishes content from one farm to another—all in CSOM. One cool thing about SharePoint's C# client API is that it allows us to easily simulate cross-farm functionality on our local (assumedly web garden) development environment. CSOM doesn't care whether it's context is a remote site collection, web application, or farm; everything in CSOM is technically remote.
