Orange County SharePoint User Group (OCSPUG) Site has changed

image

Tim and I were talking with the folks from Microsoft today (Sal, Grant and Antoni) discussing the upcoming OCSPUG when I noticed the OCSPUG.org site was down. Also, thanks to Microsoft they have generously provided us their  South Coast Plaza Store presentation area to hold the monthly events…

Since all of this is going on I thought it would be a great idea to to make sure everyone knew about the new the new Orange County SharePoint User Group Site #OCSPUG  http://www.meetup.com/OC-SharePoint-User-Group-OCSPUG and to ask you guys to check it out, and register as an OC SharePoint Rockstar. This will help all of us keep up with the current SharePoint stuff and answer any questions you may have in your environments that might keep you from banging your head against the wall too much. All of that said, as you guys know if you have an emergency of any type and need some please reach out as we can usually save you a lot of time and effort. If its not that big a deal and can wait 24 hours just send me an email and I will generally always reply with 24 hours..

 

Now for the sales pitch right after you register for OCSPUG you need to register for SPSLA

Call to Action: FEATURE REQUEST: Please Add the De-Duplication Feature to the Windows 10 Client OS

This is something that IT Pros and Devs should readily understand. However, it can save all users time and money..

As an example: I sometimes run Windows Server 2012 R2 on my Laptop  where I have 2 1tb SSD drives (they are a lot cheaper now) so I can natively run SharePoint instead of having to use several VMs. When I have Windows Server 2012 R2 Installed I run a feature called DeDuplication and it enables me to save 436GB of disk space by keeping a single version of the file on the data drive while creating pointers to the file in every location where a duplicate exists. If you do a lot of SharePoint development you end up with a lot of Hives so that you can easily start up a replica of your clients environment. Since I can only have two hard drives on my laptop and I am swapping out the DVD player to so. De-Duplication is a life saver, it allows me to store twice the amount of data as the disk would normally hold. if I then install a Desktop OS on my laptop all of the files that have been deduplicated I will  be able to open until I have copied the files from Windows server 2012, run a PowerShell script to install the features, then activate de-duplication

image

The Server community has enjoyed DeDuplication since Windows Server 2012 in an Operating System but all SANs have this feature build in (too bad they don’t fit in your laptop bag). This is a hard drive  storage technology that should be made available in every OS not just  Server OSs. The really stupid part is that we can copy the features from the Windows Server OS and enable them on Windows 8, 8.1, and now 10. However, I really like to keep my systems as pristine as possible which is difficult enough when developing software..

 

If your running Windows 10 like me your probably running build 10130,  then complete the following steps to ask Microsoft to include this feature in Windows 10 Client OS

 

1. Open Search or hit  the Windows key and type  feedback, then click on Windows feedback to Open the feedback app

SNAGHTML4d24796[6]

2. Click on Files, Folders, and Online Storage. and type in dedup into the search bar

3. You will find 5/6 of people requesting de-duplication to be added to the Windows !0 Client OS, please Click UpVote at the bottom of each request

image

 

It is NOT a luxury to have De-Duplication on Windows 10 Client OS but very necessary as we can only fit 2 drives in as laptop and when you run multiple VMs to help people learn  software development skills. I cant really imagine why it would not be added to the Windows 10 Client OS.

Embed a PowerPoint Presentation into a SharePoint 2013 Page with Multiple Farms

It seems like everyone NothingButSharePoint and Microsoft Office and Microsoft Bogs states that you can not embed unless your using Office 365 (this may have been due to using SharePoint 2010). There are many more post and articles that require you to use Onedrive.. There are probably many better ways to sharing Content using WAC with multiple farms and SharePoint On-Prem and I would enjoy hearing about how you have solved this issue

Embed a PowerPoint Presentation from a source SharePoint Farm and render the presentation in a target SharePoint Farm using CEWP

1. Go to http://focalpoint.cotoso.com and search for PPTX

clip_image001

2. Use the Drop Down, Choose embedded information, and Copy All

3. Go to http://learning.fabricam.com

5. Add Content Editor WebPart

clip_image002

 

 

 

6. Click Inside the WebPart Choose the Orange Insert, Click Embed Code

clip_image003

7. Insert (Paste CTRL+V) the Code you copied from http://focalpoint.contoso.com

SNAGHTML159a25c

8. Then Click the Insert button,

9. Next Edit the WebPart, and change the Width to 540px, then click OK

SNAGHTML15d48fe

10. Click Check-in, then Publish this Draft

SNAGHTML15f8f54

 

 

Note: The Site Collection Feature – Cross-Farm Site Permissions is activated on both Farms, the cross-farm site permissions feature to allow internal SharePoint applications to access websites across farms.

SharePoint LMS – ELEARNINGFORCE Competency & Certification Module (CCM) v2.1 Guidance

One of the issues as a consultant I find difficult at times is the lack of product documentation. This can happen for many reasons with product immaturity being the most prevalent today. However, this was not always the case. When I first started using PCs and developing software in the 1980s we had to dial-in to an ISVs BBS  (Bulletin Board) using very expensive, very slow modems (USR 300b / 1200b)  that obviously suffered from performance, and required ISVs BBS phone number.   Luckily or maybe not so much it was more difficult to find a bookstore in Los Angeles that carried any publications on software development as there was only one store in Los Angeles that sold books on software development OpAmp 1033 N Sycamore Ave, Hollywood, CA 90038 and software development being such a small industry was just a small part of OpAmps business as the store focus was primarily on Electrical Engineering. Unfortunately, OpAmp is out of business today and the last time I stopped by for nostalgic reasons was in 2012. OpAmp still had a 1990s style website the last time I browed through the site a couple of years ago (see screenshot below), without todays ability to buy and sell the writing was on the wall..

Please pardon my digression as I got carried away reminiscing when I found out today that OpAmp went out of Business sometime in 2013.

I have included links below to the ELEARNING FORCE Competency & Certification Module (CCM) v2.1 Documentation

As time permits I will upload the ELEARNINGFORCE Learning Management System (LMS) v2.1 guidance for SharePoint along with the  ELEARNINGFORCE Registration & Enrollment Module (REM) v2.1 for SharePoint documentation. Last, I will provide the known issues as I have found them and recommend future enhancements that will become apparent as you design, develop and deploy the LMS.
