Recently, there has been the Sample code acceptance checklist for IT organizations published at Microsoft TechNet. This checklist is meant to help IT organizations evaluate custom SharePoint solutions before they are deployed in the production environments.
Windows SharePoint Services v3 ships with a possibility to create RSS Feeds for every List. This feature is quite powerful as it allows you to create multiple RSS Feeds for one List based on Views. If you have worked with Lists at least a bit, you know that you can quite easily create a custom View using the standard SharePoint interface. Without any problems you will be able to define the filter and apply the sorting criteria.
Finally, the last day at work is behind me. After having delivered the OneClickDeployment of a SharePoint solution for one of our customers and having a great meeting about accessibility in SharePoint this work day is finished to me. I'm officially going on vacation.
Recently I've been working quite intensively with the SharePoint developer bookmarklets. SharePoint is really infamous of way too many clicks required to accomplish various things. Having shortcuts to the most commonly used functionality within one click saves really a lot of time.
Structured and repeatable deployment of SharePoint solutions is very important for preserving scalability and maintainability of the solution. Furthermore it allows you to keep track of the deployed components what is very important if you want to provide your customers with support for your solution.
