I will be speaking at the Microsoft TechEd 2013 Conference, from June 3-6, 2013 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Project Team was only allotted 1 speaking slot this year so I was very honoured to be co-presenting with Sajan Parihar from the team.
Here’s our session outlines:
Got a great message this morning from a friend of mine and fellow Microsoft Certified Trainer, Raymond Comvalius. Raymond is from the Netherlands and at a recent event he mentioned my petition to the folks at WP7.nl. They host the Dutch Windows Phone community and they have written a small article on my petition.

A couple of months ago I upgraded my Windows mobile phone from a Samsung Focus to a Nokia Lumia 920. I am very happy with the upgrade. It was definitely worth it.
Now having said that, I am deeply disappointed with the Facebook app for Windows Phone. The thing that REALLY, REALLY bugs me about the app is…
If you tap on any item for to look at the details, when you press the Back key, the page is automatically refreshed and the user is taken to the top of the page every time. This can very frustrating, especially when you are attempting to get caught up on posts and events that are a few hours old.
So, what to do??
A good friend of mine, Jacob Hansen, is looking for a Senior Consultant for their corporate IT portfolio management. The focus will be on moving from reactively reporting to proactively managing and developing PMO and Sourcing processes as well as developing strategic capabilities.
But here’s the cool part…
The company is The LEGO Group in Billund, Denmark
More information on the position can be from here:
So you just installed or have a new computer with Windows 8 and you’re attempting to access Project Web Access (PWA) on Project Server 2010. You can access the PWA site, but you receive the following error when selecting the Project Center:
“This Web Part requires at least Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0. For more information, contact your Project Server Administrator”
The same error occurs when accessing the Resource Center.
But now you’ve got your new shiny phone (in my case a Nokia Lumia 920), configured your Start Screen and Lock Screen to look just right, but now you’re missing your Apps from your old phone.
So what are you going to do?
Sure you could go to the Windows Phone Store (no longer called Marketplace) and start searching and installing all your apps manually (if you can remember them all). But that’s gonna take a lot of time.
I have a better solution and it’s REALLY COOL
For those of you attending the SharePoint Conference 2012 in Las Vegas and that missed your chance to attend Project Ignite. Well there’s good news for you!!

Now you might be thinking to yourself, just install the Windows 8 Enterprise media and just select the Upgrade option and you should be done. Well normally you would be right except for 1 small problem…
You can’t upgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 8 Enterprise.
Don’t believe me? Well then check out Wikipedia for yourself
So now what are you gonna do?
I was just alerted by a good friend of mine, Jennifer (Herman) Farrell that their PPM consultancy, Sensei Project Solutions was just awarded the Microsoft Partner – Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) competency.

Have you ever attempted an PWA operation as a non-administrator and received an error message like the following:
But the million dollar question is:
What is global permission 85993afd-5430-4c0e-bdcf-12e013fa0b1e ?
Very strange situation happened in my test environment where the Project Server Administrator is denied access to some objects in the Server Settings in PWA.
In my situation I attempted to access the Active Directory Resource Pool Synchronization setting under the Operational Policies section.
Well I finally decided to upgrade my Lenovo ThinkPad W520 from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Release Preview. The upgrade worked flawlessly (thank you Microsoft!). So I’m checking out my new digs on the new OS and opened up Windows Explorer. Very nice! The new ribbon feature add great additional functionality to the tool. But I saw that there were a few new folders added ($WINDOWS.~BT and Windows.old). Naturally I assumed that it was the folders used in upgrade process.So I decided to continue and investigate more of the new functions of the OS.
In the end, the final verdict was this build was Rock Solid!!
