Victoria Code Camp Stuff Coming Really Soon!

The Victoria Code Camp last weekend had been awesome! The location was great, and the attendees were awesome. They were all attentive and curious, and they even laughed at some of my jokes ;)

I have been really sick the past couple of days, but I will be posting the materials/slides and demo code soon. I plan to have it up by tomorrow!

And please feel free to keep the questions coming in :) It makes my work a lot more interesting!

The Create GUID tool is often found under the Tools menu.

The actual binary – guidgen.exe – is supposed to be in

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\Tools

Apparently if you did not install Visual C++ when you were installing Visual Studio 2005, you are not going to get guidgen.exe.

I didn’t install Visual C++ in any of my VMs (trying to conserve space, plus I don’t use it anyway), which explains why my Create GUID tool is missing.

There might be a better way to do (perhaps browse through the Visual Studio 2005 install files?) but my workaround is to copy guidgen.exe from one of my other Visual Studio 2005 installs.

Victoria Code Camp, January 26, 2008

I’m doing a couple of sessions at the Victoria Code Camp on January 26, 2008! Thank you to Nolan Zak for giving me this opportunity.

These are my two sessions:

SharePoint 101
This session will provide a high level overview of Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server (MOSS 2007). This session will also cover demos of out-of-the-box Sharepoint components like: sites, lists, document libraries, and web parts.

SharePoint Web Parts
This session will cover Web Part concepts, and will walk you through creating custom ASP.NET Web Parts for SharePoint (MOSS 2007, WSS 3.0). Features will also be introduced towards the end of the session.

Schedule is posted at http://www.victoriacodecamp.com/SessionSchedule.aspx.
The list of speakers can be found at http://www.victoriacodecamp.com/CampSpeakers.aspx

Just posting the schedule here as well for your reference:

How to Register ASP.NET 2.0 in IIS

I was recently building a WSS 3.0 box, and got stumped when I can’t see ASP.NET 2.0 listed in IIS. I forgot I needed to register it:

C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727aspnet_regiis.exe -i

That’s all, just thought I’d blog this so I don’t forget next time :)
