5 experience-related things I’d love to see in SharePoint vNext

It’s more than two years since the last version of SharePoint has been released. Comparing to SPS 2003, MOSS 2007 brought us a very rich environment with tons of new features. As we all might expect, the SharePoint product team is really busy with the new version of SharePoint and I assume that many of us can’t wait to get their hands on it. Looking at the calendar however, it’s probably going to be at least the end of this year until the public release of the new version of SharePoint will see the daylight. Since there’s still some  time left, I’ve decided to share with you a couple of things I would love to see in SharePoint vNext.

I’m a SharePoint Server MVP

I’ve just received an e-mail telling me that I have received the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for my contributions to the SharePoint community. It is a great honor to me and I would like to thank everyone who contributed to my nomination but also all my colleagues and readers of my blog who provide me with new challenges every single day: Thank you!

Let me google that for you

Getting tired of answering questions like: “What is SharePoint?” and “How can I create a Feature in SharePoint?”. Start answering: “Let me google that for you”

Regular Expressions save the day

Regular Expressions (Regex) is a very powerful technology which allows you to process strings using patterns. It gives you the possibility of processing text in a relatively easy and manageable way. Depending on what you need to do, creating a single Regular Expression might save you some pretty complex programming.
