Slowly but surely, a few of the projects over the past few months which I’ve mentioned being involved with (and which have taken up alot of my blogging time) are starting to raise up from the sand. My first post today highlighted the Community Kit for SharePoint (UGE) which is now available.
I also just received word that a project that that I was involved with and later asked to co-write, with a colleague (Jared Rypkema) a 3 part building experience article on has made it’s way to the ECM Team Blog and Part 1 of 3 is now available for your viewing pleasure.
Without giving to much away, the 3 part article steps you through the highlights (ups and downs) of an application we built a few months (on B2TR) MOSS 2007. It will cover the branding, custom controls, search, localization, etc.
I am also happy to say that our book (Beginning SharePoint 2007 – Building Team Solutions) is starting to shape up as we enter the final stages of editing, thanks to hard work (especially from Amanda) and the constant direction of Jim Minatel and crew @ Wiley whom have helped us immensely in trying to keep on track.
If you’ve never worked with Jim you don’t know what you are missing, I’ve met him a few times, first in Florida and later again in Boston - he’s just a class act, what can I say. Anyone that takes time from their vacation to fly to New Orleans and help out the Katrina victims is a-ok in my book. Stay tuned – it’s not too far out!
