Coming originally from Bavaria in Germany, I currently live in Stockholm, Sweden and work there as a team lead for a SharePoint consulting team. I started developing for SharePoint 2003 in 2005 and worked as developer and architect ever since. Now I am primarily focusing on SharePoint 2010/2013 solution architecture, development and optimizing development processes. I am Certified SCRUM Master and Product Owner, MCPD and MCITP in SharePoint 2010 and certified in Team Foundation Server. In my “free time” I develop open source tools i.e. the SharePoint Software Factory and SharePoint Solution Deployer to improve and standardize SharePoint development. I also develop a process called SharePoint application lifecycle process (SPALM) which I train at seminars to SharePoint developers. I am a speaker at SharePoint conferences, usergroups and Microsoft roadshows.

The API then analyzes this text, and is able to perform sentiment analysis, or keyword extraction. For example, it is able to determine whether a sentence like “Azure Machine Learning is a very powerful […]

Creating Office add-ins – using ADAL JS and the Office 365 Unified API

Since my last post on Azure Analytics (thanks to everyone that shared) and now that it is summer and things are calming down a bit, I wanted to play around a little with all the new shiny stuff that is getting released by Microsoft around Office 365, Azure and SharePoint. Today I’m going to focus on […]

STOP using SPDisposeCheck (or MSOCAF) with SharePoint 2013!

SharePoint apps and farm solutions require all sorts of system resources. These resources could involve memory, system handles or even database connections. Not dealing correctly with them can introduce nasty bugs and performance issues. The .NET CLR supports automatic memory management, using the garbage collector. But other resources need to be dealt with using bespoke code. […]
