When Product Management Meets Social Justice

In technology, we often find a lot of cool stuff that, as developers, engineers and yes, even product managers, we think is just plain cool. In agile development, we create epics, where we lay out customer stories and tie them into a set of features; however, while we’re working towards our goals we often find those technical places where we discover we can do something super cool. And we sometimes want to weave those into our stories as features in products simply because we want to make stuff that we’re technically proud of. But should we?
Too often we don’t consider what the social ramifications are to features. Time and time again we hear stories of what seemed like a cool feature that got abused. When we’re creating software, we think of the art. We want to change the world after reading too much Guy Kawasaki. We want to build sometimes just for the sake of building. And sometimes we come to a place where we think we just have to add something into a product. Then we... | Read more »

Visio webcast on October 7: Leveraging Visio—Hyper...

Two of the most significant techniques to enhance the value of a Microsoft Visio diagram are to incorporate data and to create hyperlinks to external locations.
This session is a deep dive into hyperlinking and will demonstrate some of the more subtle but incredibly useful features of Visio hyperlinking. Not only will you learn how to link a Visio shape to a Word document, you will also learn how to build a link that takes the reader to a specific word or phrase in that document. You’ll learn similar tricks for Excel and PowerPoint, as well as how to create hyperlinks that automatically generate a pre-addressed email message.
You will also learn how to leverage the data in your diagrams by creating and running reports. In the final segment you will learn multiple techniques for sharing your Visio diagrams with people who don’t have Visio.
Presented by Scott Helmers, MVP, Harvard Computing Group.

Introducing the Enterprise Social Resource Center

It’s no secret that social networking has fundamentally changed the way we connect and communicate in our personal lives. Now, social is transforming the way we work by enabling businesses to tap into the power of human networks.
Earlier this year, we shared our vision for the future of work: to empower companies to work like a network. To build on this vision, we’re excited to announce the launch of the Enterprise Social Resource Center, a library of educational resources designed to help business leaders and decision makers better understand the value of enterprise social. Bringing together white papers, e-books, infographics, customer success stories—and lots more—into a single location, the Enterprise Social Resource Center is a... | Read more »

OneNote lends a helping hand

Today’s post about OneNote was written by Jean White, who collaborated with Steven Luker to share his story. 
Steven Luker is an avid OneNote user. At first glance, though, his situation might seem very different from most people. Because of cerebral palsy, he uses a wheelchair, is non-verbal and has full use of only one arm.
When Steven shared with us how he uses technology to solve a lot of the problems he deals with, something became evident: Steven is a lot like everyone else. He’s a busy guy, juggling home life, a startup and involvement his church and in the tech community—and he needs a way to keep track of everything. He found a way to use OneNote to support him and his tricks can help you too.
OneNote is the quickest way for Steven to make notes that he can easily retrieve from his computer, iPad, a web browser or his Windows Phone. Notes are also a great way for him to communicate with people. He can type up notes ahead of time—like a... | Read more »

Accelerate your Office 365 adoption: Microsoft int...

Jared Spataro is the general manager of Enterprise Social at Microsoft.
Today, I’m excited to announce the launch of the Office 365 Customer Success Center, a new website designed to help customers drive adoption and business value.  This new resource is targeted at what we call “Office 365 Champions” and I wanted to provide some additional context on why I think this is an exciting milestone for Office 365.

Getting the most out of Office 365
I love to hear how customers are using Office 365 to change the way they do business, but if you’ve worked with new technologies before, you know that a real success story takes more than just making the tools available. To really get the most out of an investment in a new technology, you have to help people understand what they can do with it.  And that’... | Read more »

New version of Lync SDN interface now available

Today’s post was written by Jamie Stark, project manager on the Lync Team.
It’s been just a few months since were at TechEd talking about how Unified Communications (UC) can take advantage of Software Defined Networking (SDN). Since then the industry hasn’t stopped talking about the utility of UC SDN across different scenarios, from diagnosing where media issues happen in the network to automating Quality of Service (QoS).
In the meantime, we’ve been hard at work across three paths.  First, we have a growing list of partners working to integrate, test and qualify with the Lync Server SDN interface—most recently being Meru Networks and Extreme Networks.  These partners are joining... | Read more »

Licensing The Xcode Command Line Tools

Tools that leverage the Xcode Command Line Tools might have a problem if you install the tools without agreeing to the license. Here, you can see IntelliJ complaining about just that:

To agree to the license agreement, you can use xcrun along with the cc verb:
sudo xcrun cc
This is an interactive command line environment so in order to script it you’d need to use expect to feed in the correct parameters.

Mac Network Commands Cheat Sheet

After writing up the presentation for MacSysAdmin in Sweden, I decided to go ahead and throw these into a quick cheat sheet for anyone who’d like to have them all in one place. Good luck out there, and stay salty.

View the dns server for en0:
ipconfig getoption en0 domain_name_server
Get information about how en0 got its dhcp on:

5 tips to make your Outlook.com account even more...

In a world of multiple devices, online ubiquity, and cloud storage, the security of your personal content—email, documents, and photos—is more important than ever. In addition to the behind-the-scenes work we do to keep your Outlook.com account secure, we’ve made a list of what we think are the top five things that you can do, to help keep your account as secure as possible:
1. Use a strong password and change it often
A strong password is one that is not easy to guess. Our advice is to make your password a combination of upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols. We also recommend that you change it often, just in case someone manages to guess it. We recommend changing it every two months, and when you do, it should not be in any sort of pattern. For example, don’t simply change your password from “heLLo.1” to “heLLo.2”.
2. Use different passwords for each online account
We all use multiple services—be that Facebook, Twitter, Xbox Live,... | Read more »

Jared Spataro is the general manager of Enterprise Social at Microsoft.
At the SharePoint Conference in March, we announced our roadmap for a set of connected experiences that would enable your company to work like a network. This month, we reached an important milestone with Office Delve. Continuing on this journey, today we are rolling out the first phase of Groups in Office 365.

Getting things done at work means sharing information and collaborating across ad hoc groups and project teams.  But, often times the tools we use to bring people together are different in each app—distribution groups in Outlook, buddy lists in Lync, groups in Yammer.  That’s why we’re introducing Groups in Office 365, so you can easily connect with the colleagues... | Read more »

EWS Managed API for .NET is now open source

 Victor Boctor is a principal architect on the Exchange team.
Last month, we released the Exchange Web Services (EWS) Java API as open source under the MIT license. Since then, we have received great feedback from the community, including many contributions via bug reports and pull requests. Today, we are building on this momentum by releasing the EWS Managed API, the .NET implementation of this API, as open source. Unlike the EWS Java API, this is the first time that the EWS Managed API has been made available as an open-source library. The open-source EWS Managed API provides the following advantages:

  • You can contribute bug fixes and enhancements to enable scenarios that you care about while making integrating with Exchange even more awesome than it is today... | Read more »
