How to: Query List Items from the Host Web in a Client Web Part of a SharePoint Hosted app

That’s a mouthful, but I wanted to make sure that people knew exactly what this post is for.  The problem I am seeing out there already is that while there is a lot of code samples, they aren’t clear for what type of app the sample is for.  If you are doing a provider hosted app for example, the way you query list items is different (using the Cross-Domain Library).  Today’s topic boggled me though because while I found plenty of samples on how to query list items using CSOM from an app, they were all in-fact incorrect for a SharePoint hosted app.  The article I linked is great by the way.  It has many of the things you need to know how to do via CSOM in an app so be sure and check it out. Now to get on to the scenario I want to help you with today.  If you are building a Client Web Part, you may have stumbled upon my previous articles on the topic (JavaScript and ... (more)

ExecEvent highlights the relevance of tape in the Big Data age Frankfurt, Germany - 5th November 2012 - The role of tape in the enterprise is changing and the major vendors are responding to new opportunities such as the rise of Big Data.

Five Percent of SharePoint is making Users Happy

Forceworks Five Percent of SharePoint is making Users Happy What’s that you say? I can replace my “F” drive with SharePoint? Wow, that is amazing! It reminds me of the brand new Ferrari F-12 Berlinetta that was pulling out of the grocery store right ahead of me a few weeks ago. I pulled up behind it at the light, fully expecting it to launch on green. But after an awkward delay, it slowly started going forward and crept along well below the speed limit. Disappointed, I pulled past and looked over to see some 90-year-old man, grinning from ear to ear. Here is a guy who has a car that is capable of going 200 MPH, and he is perfectly content with its ability to crawl back and forth to the grocery store. I thought “what a waste of power”, and it reminded me of a lot of the SharePoint deployments I see lately. Microsoft launched SharePoint Online as part of Office 365 ta... (more)

What’s New for Active Directory in Server 2012 R2?

Active Directory.  You know it.  You love it.  You’ve loved it since it made its introduction back in Windows 2000 Server.  Over 90 percent of the world’s business IT relies on Active Directory for local user and machine management, authentication, policy application, and directory services.  And with every new version of a Windows Server product, we make improvements and add new functionality that either directly impacts Active Directory, or indirectly impacts (read: enables) other new functionality on behalf of your users, applications, and managed resources.  So naturally we couldn’t do a series of “Why Windows Server 2012 R2” articles without discussing it. If there were an overall theme on top of the updates in Active Directory in Windows Server 2012 R2, I would have to say it’s the new capabilities to support the “Consumerization of IT” and “BYOD”.  From this ...
