File Not Found Error with SharePoint 2010 and Visual Studio 2010
Hey folks, I've had this happen to me a couple of times and it's driven me a little crazy figuring out what was going on. You may use Visual Studio 2010 to create a new SharePoint 2010 application.

Intellisense for Properties on ASP.NET Custom Server Controls
NOTE: The solution described below is only necessary if your web page and custom control are in the same project. I had this really not fun time this week blowing a couple of hours on something that should have been zero impact so I thought I'd share here. I wrote a custom ASP.NET server control and...

Calling a Claims-Aware WCF Service From a SharePoint 2010 Claims Site
I’ve been doing some work lately (that will be fodder for future posts) on more of the end-to-end integration story with SharePoint and other applications, and using claims authentication to flow identity across application boundaries. One of the specific points I’ve been working on lately...
