Working Remotely at Microsoft

by on July 2, 2009

In my last post, I talked about how I’m a semi-happy employee.  The reason I’m only semi-happy is that I work remotely, from my house.  Many folks think that working remotely is the bees’ knees.  For some people, it may be.  For me, not so much.  I really miss the interaction with my team members, who are all really smart.  It’s very difficult to do a pair designing session over the phone. I also live 3000 miles from Redmond, and 3 time zones away.  The time difference and the physical separation just serve to make working with my team even more difficult

Developing with Contemporary Site Part 2

by on June 22, 2009

In my previous post I discussed the steps necessary to set up the SharePointCommerce solution for development.  Now I would like to demonstrate a process for completely updating one of the WSP’s the building of that solution creates. If you browse to the root of your solution structure, you will find a folder called WSP.  Based on the configuration outlined in Part 1, you should have the following WSP files: MicrosoftCommerceMOSSDefaultSite.wsp, MicrosoftCommerceWebParts.wsp, MicrosoftCommerceMOSSDefaultSiteV2.wsp. For this example we will use the MicrosoftCommerceWebParts.wsp.  If you create a copy of the WSP and change its extension to .CAB.  You will be able to see exactly what is being deployed.  Inside you will find a Manifest.xml which lists all of the changes, including all the features to be deployed.  Each feature is represented by its own feature.xml.

Azure and interactive maps demonstrator

by on June 18, 2009

With much momentum behind one part of our overall S+S strategy (namely BPOS/Microsoft Online), partners will in addition begin to see more momentum building on the ‘cloud OS’ side of the equation, namely Azure . I’ve just seen this announced internally as an example of some of the real world applications going up on the Azure platform – this one for a forthcoming event in Chicago.

Call orchestration with ref parameter in a loop

by on June 18, 2009

Sometime back I worked on a case where the spool would go very high and I have been thinking to blog this for some time now and today I decided I will process this awaiting queued item in my mind. I had a customer who was seeing a surge in the spool count whenever an orchestration instance started and spool would go back to its original count only once this instance get completed. As we all know, the high count of spool impact Biztalk processing, the customer was too worried about it.
