A SharePoint friend, is going to be missed really. It’s so sad as I am writing this.. I will miss you Dave, you were such a great friend, and shared great posts.

You gave me the opportunity to write with you in your blog and always shared my posts.

How to write a professional SharePoint C.V

Standard

Ok first there is millions of posts over the internet if you just search google, so what am I adding? I am here basically and only talking about SharePoint C.Vs

Dear SharePoint fellows;

  1. It is called SharePoint. As you can the “S” & “P” are capital
  2. No Space in the word “SharePoint”
  3. Put your title at the top of the C.V, don’t make the HR look for the current job to know your title! Make it easy seen.
    1. Some HRs doesn’t care about your technical skills but looks for your title if that’s the one she/he needs to call you and book appointment for you with the technical person.
  4. Your email should be professional like your suit.
    1. Don’t put names like “bobos”, “kity”, “toti” but instead put either full name or first and second like mai_omar_86@live.com
      J that’s mine.
  5. If you are applying for job like SharePoint, and if you once worked as accountant in the beginning of your life, don’t let the HR know about that.
    1. What does accountant has to do with SharePoint, but if you were a technical support that is okay to mention.
  6. The certificate logos are hard to be aligned as each has its word, big and small so it’s difficult to align them.
    1. What you can do, just write the certificate title, those is fair enough
  7. Your C.V should have any projects you did, if you say you have experience, don’t just write the product name!
    1. If you are fresh graduate, didn’t had the chance to do a project, tell us about the web parts you created as an example or may be workflows.
  8. If you want to put a picture, put one only one with handsome suit and tie, for ladies be formal.
  9. Align your C.V, align the text, titles and the paragraphs, add tables with no borders if required to be aligned.
  10. Please use the same font style with 3 different sizes maximum.
  11. Use 2 colors, for borders only and not for the content, like background is white and border is black or dark blue or brown but definitely not red!

So far just stick to this, should be ok.

BTW if you think, I missed something, add it in a comment to this post, would be thankful.

IE cannot display the web page – happens when creating new web application

Standard

A friend today was investigating in this till he solve it, let me name him “Hytham Elabady” Senior Developer @ Allianz J spend quite good time, actually I just didn’t pay attention to this issue but he put it on mind till it worked, I thought I have good RAM so oh no never Time out L but …. It was … anyway find the solution below..

The below solution is for Web Applications and it doesn’t have to be a SharePoint web application 2010 or 2013… what so ever, it is general time out behavior due to that whatever the web application doing in the background, it took more than expected so it timed out.

Solution:

  1. Open IIS,
  2. Click on Central administration – under sites,
  3. Click on advanced settings,
  4. Increase the “Connection Time-out (seconds), by default it is 120, make it 240 for example, it’s up to you..

     

    Now create your web application & let me know J

Heads Up – All SP24 Sessions Are Now On-Demand!

Standard

Below is the mail coming from SP24 Team; I won’t write it in a better way but sharing for whoever didn’t participate in such a huge conference & also will send it to my co-workers who started to follow the SharePoint-Community & some already following …

Before you read the mail; BIG THANK YOU to SP24 TEAM for the effort done & for volunteering your time to make SP24 succeed & it was big success!

Well as we have just finished playing out our last SP24 Rewound session and are delighted that so many tuned in to watch the sessions this time around. We are also really pleased that the whole event ran very smootly and with no problems. It’s amazing what you can do in SharePoint with a bit of sleep, T-L-C and time!😉

A BIG Thanks!

As this will be one of our last communications for a while, we wanted to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all of the Speakers, Anchors, Sponsors, helpers, Fpweb.net (for hosting) and to all 7500 Attendees! Without you the whole event wouldn’t have been possible.

SP24 Resources

You will have probably noticed that as you attended various sessions in the conference, you automatically received slides and code samples shared by the speakers. For convenience, these resources are not only available in each Session Room, but are also consolidated centrally in your ‘My SP24 Resources’ page. As you attend more sessions on-demand, this list will automatically grow with related resources. Please note: we don’t have all of the speaker slides yet but are working on it (hint, hint Speakers ;)).

How to watch the On-Demand Sessions?

Over the next few days we will be tidying up the site to put it into “On-Demand Mode”, but for now all you need to do is log-in and go to the ‘Session Planner’. Once there, click on any session that you want to watch and it will automatically start playing. Couldn’t be easier!

Are we doing it again?

The short answer – we really hope so! Putting this event together was a lot of fun and it was amazing to connect so many SharePoint enthusiasts with so many world famous SharePoint experts. It was even more fun building it all on top of SharePoint 2013 Foundation!

We are definitely up for doing it again – but to keep it free, we need support from SharePoint-related organizations who are looking for ways to engage with a Worldwide audience in a way that’s very unique. If you are interested in sponsoring SP24 2015, please get in touch with
Jon Manderville
who will register your interest and give you more information as it becomes available.

On that note, it’s good bye from all of us on the SP24 Team and we hope you enjoy the on-demand sessions.

PS. Don’t forget those Speaker submission forms😉

Thanks

SP24 Team
