There were a lot of interesting events and announcements in the world, while I’ve been with my baby daughter in the last days. In the meantime I’m reviewing some technical documents… So, here you are a short enumeration about the most important SharePoint-related news of the past days:
- SharePoint Dispose Checker: During SharePoint development there is a common thing to have disposa problems. These issues makes nightmares to the developers as well as end users because of the bad quality of codes. Fortunately, the SharePoint Dispose Checker has been available since the end of January:
SPDisposeCheck is a tool to help you to check your assemblies that use the SharePoint API so that you can build better code. It provides assistance in correctly disposing of certain SharePoint objects to help you follow published best practice. This tool may not show all memory leaks in your code.
- FAST Search Integration: At the FASTforward’09, in Las Vegas has been announced: the FAST Search for SharePoint will be the part of the SharePoint 14:
FAST Search for SharePoint will combine high-end search with the broad portal, collaboration, content management and business intelligence capabilities of SharePoint.
- Best Practices Conference: The second Best Practices Conference was a very great success in San Diego last week. The series will be continued in London, at the beginning of April. I’ll be there with my family, and have two sessions: Search can be your best friend you just need to know how to talk to it and Best Practices for IW Document Management with SharePoint 2007.
