The Sharepoint Developers Guide to Project Server 2010

It’s just meant to be – Project Server and SharePoint server are better together, and this is the session that will show you why. Come and join us as we take you on a tour showing how the two products work together, and how you can deliver better solutions by integrating the two. Get to know how developers can leverage both of these great tools together and how you can deliver more value, what the features of the tools can offer and what you need to know as a developer to start solving real world business problems.

Ask a SharePoint expert Q/A panel

Join the SharePoint End / Business user ‘experts Alexander Burton. Dan Holme, Ben Walters & Bhavik Merchant for a open forum Q&A panel in the SharePoint Interactive Theatre in the Expo hall, sponsored by AvePoint.

More over videos of the session shall be available online after the event here, I hope those who attend will have some great time. Good luck.

Project Server 2010 JUN CU Issue to Multi-Lingual Deployments

For those who are working with the Project Server 2010 multi-lingual implementations, please be aware of a recently discovered issue after the June CU and SP1 have been installed.  It would appear that we have a bug whereas all column headers in the Project Center and Resource Center grids appear in English, regardless of the selected UI language.  The issue appears to be related to the June CU, as an SP1 / SP1 language pack environment (without the June CU) does not display the problem.

Since there is no solution to avoid this so far, you can opt for one of the listed options below. This is basically to bring the importance of the issue to MS notice, because usually the MS time to resolve such issues based on its severity and wide impact to the users.

  1. There is a thread already posted on official Project Server forums, you can go and leave your feedback here.
  2. You can log your issue at 
  3. You can leave the comment on this blog post, OR send me an email through my blog "send me an email" option and i will forward your feedback to the related MS person. 

All the credit goes to the Quint Mouthaan to notifying the users about this issue on Project Server Forums, and also allowing me to post this on my blog to spread the word as much as possible.

Project Server 2010 and MS Dynamics AX 2012 better together

This is to announce the release of new White Paper explaining the integration of Project Server 2010 with Dynamics AX 2012 Financial and Project module. You can download the document from here.

This document explains the integration architecture for The Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 and Microsoft Project Server 2010 and provides instructions for setting up integration between the two programs. By setting up integration between the two products, project managers can create projects in either of the products and synchronize project data between them. This solution enables you to draw on both the core project management capabilities in Project Server 2010 and the financial management capabilities in Microsoft Dynamics AX.

You can also go through this document to know more about New, Changed and Depreceated features for the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2010 here. This document provides a summary of new and changed features that are planned to be implemented in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. Additionally, it provides deprecated feature notices for features which are planned to be removed in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 or future releases.

Hope this excites you a bit :)
