SharePoint 2013: 7 Features Users are Going to Love (CMSWire)
Unlike the continual release model of its cloud based competitors, Microsoft releases a major version of SharePoint every three years. There are some downsides to this approach (see later in this article), but one definite upside is that when the releases do come around, those of us who work with SharePoint every day tend to get a bit excited. (As in, excited like first graders at a raspberry cordial party.)
SharePoint: Un-planned, Under-developed and Un-loved - But Not Un-popular
The latest AIIM Industry Watch report is out today, and it has some great insights into the love/hate relationship between SharePoint and its users. We asked implementers if they thought SharePoint was the right decision for their business when they originally went for it. It would be easy to focus on the 9% who feel it was a poor decision rather than the 55% who are positive about it – although half of those found it tougher going than they expected. More interesting, however, are the 22% who "had high ambitions, but have only achieved basic deployment".
SharePoint 'Apps' - A Missed Opportunity? (BetaNews)
Almost everyone who uses a computer or mobile device these days is familiar with apps and app stores. Back in the day, computers used to have "programs," and it was even once seen as fairly progressive to venture out onto the web and download something for yourself. No longer is this the case. Users are happy using app stores, and such mechanisms are almost expected on any new platform.
Microsoft Office 13 Embraces Web Development (ComputerWorld)
First Look: Windows Azure Active Directory Preview (ComputerWorld)
Everyone knows by now that Microsoft is getting into the cloud business. But for a long time one of the biggest obstacles to corporate customers joining Microsoft on that move was the lack of an identity management platform that could span the boundary between cloud provider and enterprise.
Metro Whining and Other Windows 8 Madness (PC Magazine)
I don't care much about the Metro name change brouhaha. I couldn't care less except for the fact that I have to change some of the Metro references in some writing I've done for upcoming pieces on Windows Server 2012. Frankly, I don't care much about the Metro interface at all—I've been using Windows 8 client and Server 2012 extensively now, for almost six months.
BUILD 2012 Sells Out in Less than an Hour (WindowsITPro)
It’s been an interesting year of innuendo and rumor, but if you’re looking for evidence that Microsoft’s next generation platforms—Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, and so on—are exciting developers, look no further than this: On Wednesday, the firm announced its BUILD 2012 developer conference. And it sold out in less than an hour. In a rare move, BUILD 2012 will be held at the software giant’s corporate headquarters in Redmond, Washington.

Good News for SharePoint 2013 Developers: You Still Have a Job (Furuknap's SharePoint Corner)
…and you’ll get a new laptop. Best news? You really know most of what you need to know. SharePoint 2013 Doesn’t Change Anything. During SPTechCon in Boston 2011, I recorded a video for Christian Buckley on the one thing you need to know about SharePoint 2010. My message then was that you really don’t need to relearn everything when moving from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010.
Top 18 Enhancements Our Students Are Hoping For in SharePoint 2013 (SharePoint Solutions Team Blog)
We’ve been teaching SharePoint 2010 training classes each month around the U.S. for about two and a half years now. Our instructors have become pretty used to hearing from students the same “ugh, why doesn’t SharePoint do that?” or “If it just did this one thing it would open the door to solve so many more business problems!” We hear this list over and over again, class after class – probably from over a 1,000 people total.
Building Apps for SharePoint and Office 365 (Apps for Office and SharePoint Blog)
My name is Howard Crow, and I have been working on SharePoint since the beginning. I am now the Group Program Manager of the Developer Experience team. Today I finally get to tell you about what our team has been working on, which is a dramatic reinvention of the SharePoint and Office 365 developer platform.
SharePoint: Metadata (EndUserSharePoint)
Metadata is an all so common subject in the SharePoint world. But what is it? Where is the value? Why bother? And how does it relate to SharePoint? In short, metadata is data about information and the value it provides is better search or information discovery as Microsoft like to call it. Not that information that has no metadata is not searchable, but the quickest way to find information in SharePoint is Search. Yes it’s just as powerful as Google.
