Accessing an OData Producer using an Office 2010 Add-in

To continue the theme of landing external data in Office 2010, I’ve taken a demo excerpt from a session I presented at a conference last week to show how easy it is to land OData information in an add-in.

VS 2010 productivity improvements – Part I

Every developer deserves a fantastic development environment that allows them to write, understand, navigate, and debug code as efficiently as possible.  After all, developers spend most of their time in the IDE. As we designed and built Visual Studio 2010, we let this principle guide the product, and I think we've delivered an IDE that raises the development experience bar significantly.  Starting today and over the coming weeks, I will highlight my favorite productivity features in Visual Studio 2010.  Some of them are small features, and some of them required a large, coordinated effort across the team, but each one makes developers' lives a little easier

Simple Tip when creating VS projects for sharepoint 2010

One thing I’ve noticed is that when you create a SharePoint project in VS 2010 (File, New, Project) and create a name for your project it doesn’t get persisted down to the project item. For example, create a new Visual Web Part project; you’ll notice that your default naming convention follows VisualWebPart1 for the web part that is added to the default top-level SharePoint project.  If you create a new Visual Web Part project called MyFirstVisualWebPart you’ll see that the ensuing project item that’s created does not prompt you for a name for your web part
