Corrado Iorizzo - MindDump
I attended a great TechDays event in Bern and I also had the great opportunity to take a talk.
The Recording of my session is available here.
The slide deck, as usual, can be download from by skydrive space here.
I also recall that my friend and colleague Benjamin Soulier had 2 talks. Here the links too:
I am very pleased to announce that Cambridge is the 2011 Microsoft Partner of Year in the category Future of Productivity.
The award is in recognition of the outstanding work that has been done in Switzerland , in the delivery of Portal and Collaboration projects on top of Microsoft SharePoint.
In particular Microsoft has rewarded the “SharePoint Business Accelerators” for Enterprise Social Collaboration as most innovative and leading edge solution of the year.
Congratulations to the delivery team (Alan, Charles, Bastienne, Fabrizio, Benjamin) that make this possible!
The 21st October I’m more than glad to have the opportunity to run a session at the Switzerland Techdays in Bern about the customization of TFS (through plugin and eventing service) to allow the integration with external platforms (ticketing systems or ppm tools).
More details on the event agenda here: http://www.microsoft.com/switzerland/msdn/fr/techdays/agenda.aspx
Next week in Geneva it will take place the second edition of the Soft-Shake conference that I strongly recommend (…even though if I cannot attend since I’ll be in Anaheim for the SharePoint Conference).
We have 2 speeches here:
- Ben, our Azure MVP, just back from the Build is presenting the latest features of Azure;
- Sandro and Velan are going to speak of a real case study of ALM applied to an Azure project and, probably for the first time in Switzerland, they will present the new TFS Online in their session
SoftShake is not the only upcoming event, since we’ve many initiatives around the cloud.
I’ll be directly involved in this ISACA session on Cloud computing and Swiss Market Trends where I will do with Ben a kind of Jam session on IaaS and PaaS.
Below the agenda:
18:00 Welcome and Greets
18:30 Swiss Market Trends in Cloud computing - Anees Qureshi, CTP Nyon
18: 50 Understanding the cloud computing better – Issues, Threats and solutions, with real life case analysis on various offerings
- Corrado Iorizzo, Senior Architect / Benjamin Soulier, Manager, CTP Nyon
19:50 Q and A Session
20:05 Networking Apero
Cambridge Technology Partners, Chemin de Precossy 27, Nyon.
This morning I’ve lost a couple of hours with an enterprise customer with a very annoying problem.
- We’re using different Project Collections to segregate permission and delegate administrations among different countries/departments/sand-boxed environments;
- Since a couple of days, when I add a new Project Collection, it doesn’t showed on the Project Selection window of TFS Web Access
- Indeed Visual Studio 2010 worked perfectly, showing all the expected Project Collections accordingly to the granted permissions.
- After having checked (and forced) all TFS permissions, logs and web-configs what I did had just forcing an option on TFS Web Access web.config
- I had to change the following option:
- First I removed the comment, forcing to connect to the TFS server DNS URL (http://tfs.mycompany.com/tfs)
- This wasn’t working too so I forced Web Access to connect to a specific Project Collection URI (http://tfs.mycompany.com/tfs/oneofmyprojectcollection) and unexpectedly this worked!
- I don’t know why but almost probably specifying a project collection uri force TFS to enumerate the root collection.
- I’d like to remember that this option is used when you need to decouple TFS Web Access from TFS Application Tier, splitting the module on two different servers.
