QNH RAD Race 2011

clock December 2, 2010 02:31 by author Jeroen Derde

QNH helpt haar klanten met Business Integratie vraagstukken. Onder andere door slimme applicaties te ontwikkelen. Om te bewijzen dat we doen wat we zeggen te doen, organiseren we in januari weer een RAD Race®. Deze onafhankelijke programmeerwedstrijd verplicht je snelle, maar doordachte keuzes te maken en alles uit je  ontwikkel toolset te halen. Hierbij kan iedere software development tool gebruikt worden. Uiteindelijk gaat het niet om wat een tool beloofd te doen, maar wat het oplevert…

Dus. Ben jij de beste ontwikkelaar van ons land? Doe dan mee om dat te bewijzen!

Windows Search Advanced Query Syntax

clock April 14, 2010 01:04 by author Jeroen Derde

Today, I was looking for a song in my music collection. Because the collection has grown quite a bit lately I could really find the file I was looking for.
I did know it was a 192 kbps file, and the artist name. After a bit of searching the web, I found the following options for windows search that you can use in the search bar.
Using these features, I found the file instantly.

Property   Usage
bitrate      bitrate:>150kbps
artist        artist:U2
year         year:1977..1987
year         year:>1980<1990
album      album:"greatest hits"
genre       genre:rock
lyrics        lyrics:"one"
track        track:12
 These are just the music search options. The following page contains all the possible options.

First Sharepoint 2010 NEN 2082 certified project

clock March 5, 2010 00:50 by author Jeroen Derde


Together with 3 colleagues from QNH Business Integration I am currently finishing implementing a already NEN 2082 certified project based on SharePoint 2010.
When SharePoint 2010 hits RTM there will be another audit for this version of SharePoint, because currently the pre release version has been certified.

NEN 2082 is a Dutch standard which is similar the DoD5015 and MoReq standards.

This project was done for the Gemeente Nieuwegein, which is a Dutch local Government.

For this project we have also been nominated for the “Innovation of the year” award:

Rename feature fixed in VS2010 RC

clock March 5, 2010 00:43 by author Jeroen Derde

Last week, I removed my VS2010 beta installation and installed VS2010 RC. The RC is much more stable, and as a bonus renaming a feature in a SP2010 project now works.
We have been building lots of features lately, and I was very pleasantly surprised to see this bug already fixed.

Don't set your SharePoint trustlevel to full

clock November 10, 2009 00:29 by author Jeroen Derde

A really nice (and funny) article why you should not do this, by Tyler Holmes.

I came across this article because we had an assembly containing a feature reciever that would cause an error when executed.
Assemblies containing feature recievers should always go in the GAC (by design), but we where creating a custom policy.

So, I agree with Tyler that custum policies are still preferable, but when you have a dll that contains a feature reciever, you should just put it in the GAC.
