Yes… it’s been an extremely long time since my last blog post. More than a year and a half is gone after SP2013’s release and I have been working with it non-stop since the very first day, or even earlier as SharePoint Preview. Several customers and projects later I find myself again with some minutes to gather and write up my thoughts.
During all this time we have moved from the excitement of a new SharePoint version to the already anticipated full move to the cloud. Azure and Office365 are part of my daily life and it is like opening a box full of surprises when you see the list of enhancements being released constantly. Power BI, Azure Mobile Services, Visual Studio 2013 Update 3, Azure Express Route, Azure Redis Cache… you have the feeling you can expand in every possible direction and never reach the end of it. I suppose this was the kind of feeling some of the early discoverers and sailors had while going across oceans, without knowing if there was land at the end of it. One thing is clear, we share the same excitement of discovery.
This blog post is not going to add anything to the general technical wisdom you all have, but I thought I had to say this site is still alive to the more than 58.000 unique visitors since my last article was posted. I hope the content you were looking for was useful, even though it is more SP2010 full trust oriented and not the SharePoint / Office365 App world we are all in, just yet.
I hope to have time in the coming days, weeks and months to write some of the lessons learnt while I was “away” or just some things I already knew but I never had the time to write about. I have a document title blog ideas and it is 2 pages long! So, I will try to write things for me and make them publicly available to you. This was the initial intention of this blog… write things up for myself and let somebody else take advantage of it to build a bigger knowledge base.
Thanks again to all those 58K unique visitors, I owe you this post and a lot more!
