SharePoint 2010 Managed Metadata (June 2011 - 7 parts)
I've been wanting to do a series on Managed Metadata in SharePoint 2010 for quite some time. What will follow in a few subsequent posts could likely be found on other people's blogs or in SharePoint documentation on MSDN & TechNet. The reason why I'm writing it is because I seem to keep getting the question over and over that goes something like "I know what it is, but what is your take on SharePoint 2010 Managed Metadata?"

Silverlight, MMV & SharePoint (October 2011 - 9 parts)
The next few posts are going to talk about a few things related to SharePoint, MVVM and SharePoint. In here I'll talk about a few different challenges I ran into and some techniques I've adopted.

I did a session at Microsoft's SharePoint Conference 2011 on integrating Office365/SharePoint Online & Windows Azure. In building out the demo for that I ran into some challenges when I tried to have my custom Windows Azure solution talk to and interact with a hosted SharePoint 2010 site collection living in my Office 365 SharePoint Online space. I ran into a few challenging spots when I tried using any of the four remote data access techniques available to developers. This blog series will talk about some of these challenges and how to overcome them...
