Pasión por la tecnología...

Aunque sabíamos que tendríamos una nueva versión de SharePoint durante este año, hasta el SharePoint Virtual Summit de ayer no hemos conocido detalles públicos de lo que traerá la nueva versión de la plataforma que veremos si es o no la última de la plataforma. Y ahora al lío, el resumen de novedades publicado por el equipo de producto (podréis encontrar otros posts más extensos) es el siguiente:

Selecting entire rows and columns in Excel via keyboard shortcuts

Selecting entire rows and columns in Excel via keyboard shortcuts

One Minute Office Magic

I was unaware of these two keyboard shortcuts that make selecting entire rows and columns in Excel a piece of cake.

Here I have a basic table in my spreadsheet:


I clicked into cell A3 and pressed SHIFT + SPACE. Row 3 was highlighted to the end of the table row:


I again clicked into cell A3 and pressed CTRL + SPACE (^ + SPACE on a Mac). Column A was highlighted to the end of the table column:


This certainly beats my former technique of dragging the cursor around.

State of the JavaScript Development World

State of the JavaScript Development World


JavaScript has become not just an essential Web programming language but vital in general IT development. The rise of JavaScript as the dominant Web Language was cemented recently by Matt Mullenweg. Matt is the CEO of Automattic, the owners of and leader of WordPress development strategy. In November of 2015 Matt introduced Calypso an entirely JavaScript-based front-end for WordPress. See our briefing on whats in Calypso here. Subsequently Matt said:

Learn JavaScript deeply.

Now given that WordPress is used on 26% of the world’s top 10 million websites:
this announcement carries some hefty usage weight.

10 differences between an intranet and digital workplace homepage

Inside out

As intranet managers, from time-to-time we all do it, despite bearing the scars from the last time. We decide to re-launch our intranet homepage. A triumph of optimism over experience. We know we’ll get hate mail from users the day it launches no matter how good it actually is … but we just can’t help ourselves. And so it is now in BT. We’re full speed ahead on developing a new intranet homepage site which will be launched before Christmas.

I won’t bore you with all the gruesome detail, but when the idea was first conceived, it made me think about what needs to be different this time around from what we’ve previously offered up to BT employees. How does the homepage need to be different to support the BT Digital Workplace rather than the BT Intranet?

Knowing that no one reads blog posts anymore unless they are lists of…

Disable Sharepoint item events firing during item update

Complement the bellow post with a comment on it from user “Adam Carr”. As reference it claims:

“base.DisableEventFiring() & base.EnableEventFiring() have both been made obsolete in SharePoint 2010. Use the boolean property base.EventFiringEnabled instead.”

Adrian Henke's Blog

In Sharepoint, the attached item events are fired whenever you perform an item.Update()
Ryan posted a solution to this issue, using a custom event handler that disables the events upon request.

What I dislike about the solution, is the risk of leaving the events disabled. Assume an exception occurs, the code will never reach the line where the event firing is enabled (restored) again.

I suggest a using-pattern, much like the TransactionScope class used for db transactions in the entity framework.

Now we can use this class together with the using syntax to create a scope within all item event firing is disabled.

This way, the event firing is enabled again as soon as the code leaves the defined scope, be it through normal operation or by exceptions.

Update 1

For SharePoint 2010, use this snippet instead:
