Intentional Thinking Enrique Lima Misc
Applying Service Pack 1 to Team Foundation Server 2010
Disclosure: I performed the following activities on my Windows 7 SP1 system, Visual Studio 2010 SP1 and a local Basic installation of TFS 2010. As with any deployment of a service pack into a server environment, take your recommended precautions and be aware of the changes you are putting in. With that said, make sure you backup your databases, and that you have an exit/rollback strategy in the event of an unexpected situation. Team Foundation Server 2010 Service Pack 1 corresponds to KB2182621. ......

And just like that, there went February
The best intentions were having me at perhaps posting more than twice a month, and here we are and … well it has been busy. There has been a lot of SharePoint 2010 already in this first number of weeks of the year, a good amount of TFS 2010, but even better working quite actively on two topics that I enjoy quite a bit … Windows Azure and Application Lifecycle Management. And there is more to come around those two. Through the influencers program with Geekswithblogs and I got access ......

SharePoint Learning Resources
The last 6 to 8 months have been a blur. They have gone fast! Back in June I took part in a group that was creating content for Microsoft Learning to have it be their Microsoft Official Curriculum lineup for SharePoint 2010. In that process I noticed there was something different about SharePoint 2010 when compared to the wealth and quality of documentation that had been available when SharePoint 2007 was out. There is a lot of it! There is of course the MOC Offerings, and the material I worked on ......

My Windows Phone 7 experience: 45 days in
November 13th, 2010 was the day I got my Windows Phone 7. It was an exciting day, a lot of anxiety too. Over a phone? Sadly, yes! Being a Zune Pass subscriber, it was something worth looking forward too, being a consultant that relies and works with Microsoft technologies and having the option of OneNote (without converters and such) on my phone was a great thing too. Has that changed over 45 days? No, not really. But I find myself at the very same place I was with my iPhone, I don’t really use the ......

WordPress for Windows Phone 7
Slowly but surely apps have been coming out for Windows Phone 7, I must admit that was my biggest concern on moving from the iPhone to the Windows Phone. Not the fact apps would come slowly, but when they would come. The iPhone side of things had very nice apps, and moving into a not so populated app landscape was an interesting thought. Anyway, yes there are apps I miss … but now it is one less! WordPress released the “for Windows Phone 7” app. Great experience and layout for the tool. If you are ......

There went August and we are almost halfway through September?
Here I had a plan to post in September almost the same way I did in May, June and July, but business has been good (and I hope to not jinx it). There has been plenty of stuff going on, TFS 2010 left and right, MSDN Forums, SharePoint (all flavors and variations), BizTalk, SQL Server, Commerce Server, even Host Integration Server. And of course Hyper-V. A lot has been explored and equal in the realm of learning. From writing a Microsoft Official Course, giving self-publishing a try, creating some ......
